What You Can Expect

Punta Cana River Horseback Riding and Zipline Tour

Punta Cana River Horseback Riding Tour

Saddle up for a day of adventure on this Punta Cana River Horseback Riding and Zipline Tour. Your friendly guide and driver will collect you from your hotel, then deliver you to meet your horse for a morning riding trip. Whether you’re a seasoned horseman or a new rider, there’s an animal to suit your need and level. You’ll follow your guide along scenic trails and through the Anamuya River. Pick up the pace if you’d like, or just meander through the natural beauty, depending on your level of comfort and experience.

You’ll ride through a mountain oasis and rural village, where you’ll pay a visit to a local cigar plantation. Enjoy a cigar rolled before your eyes and take a moment to refresh with a cold drink. Make your way back to the ranch after a bit of relaxing and either test your herding skills during an epic cattle drive (additional expense) or take a breather.

After a break, prepare to soar through the treetops on an incredible zipline adventure. Your professional guide will be on hand to help as you make your way over the river as many times as you’d like. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, tuck into a traditional meal prepared by locals, and sample fresh coffee from the nearby ranch. Relax poolside or take a dip before touring the ranch, where you’ll have a chance to sample cocoa and vanilla grown on site. Your tour ends with a return trip to your hotel after a day full of memory making in one of Dominican Republic’s most prized landscapes.

Optional Upgrade: Horseback ride with cattle drive
An extension of your ride on the Anamuya River, the cattle drive provides you with the opportunity to help herd cattle or horses the old-fashioned way: on horseback. Practice your cowboy or cowgirl skills as you wrangle the herd along this scenic area. No riding experience is required; your guide shows you everything you need to know for this rare and thrilling experience.

Great tour. Upon receiving my confirmation I later received a e-mail with the time they would pick us up. Pick time was 0945. We stayed at the excellence resort. IDK why but we did not get picked up by bus like the others but by a van. I guess it was because our resort was the furthest out. Just a guess. But we were picked up at about 1000. We arrived and was shown how to make a cigar while they brought the horses over. Jose was the main tour guide. He is too funny and straight forward. He always had us laughing. It was about 20 participants. We put on our helmets and then we mounted our horses. We went on a trail by the river which we crossed 10 times. We arrived to our destination had a nice lunch then zip lined. There were 2. After you zip line across you have to climb a flight of stairs and zip line back. You get to go twice if you would like, Afterwards we danced a little and then we made our way back to the original site. Fun, great price as it included zip lining and horse back riding. Also felt safe with the staff. There were staff in the back and then there were staff in the front and all in between.

Best day excursion!!! We had a fantastic time. Loved everything about this trip. From the drive thru the countryside, the cigar making, the horseback riding-favorite part by far!, the food, the zip lining and the cocoa and mama juana making at the end made for a great DR experience. The people were wonderful! The horseback riding was something like we never experienced. No skimping on anything here. Zip lined again if we wanted. Highly recommend! piece of advice-don't wear white or nice clothing, you will get dirty but so worth it!

It was one of the best experience for us.
Wonderful people and good food.
They have a portion of the track that we could do a galloping, which was amazing !

5 stars for Viator. We had not a single issue with pick ups or drop offs at our Hotel.

This was an incredible experience! We are so glad that we booked our trip through Viator and Horseplay. Jose and his Staff at Horseplay were first class and we would definitely recommend their services and tour. It was much more than horseback riding and a zipline. We learned to make cigars, had a wonderful Dominican meal, saw how chocolate was made from coco beans, drank some Mama Juana and even danced a little! We have so many fond memories of our trip to Punta Cana but none more memorable than our time with the folks at Horseplay. THANKS, Jose!! Olie and Brenda Fosdyck/Destin, FL

This was a fun tour through the countryside. It took awhile to get there after stopping to pick up guests in the various hotels, but definitely worth it.

It starts out by seeing the way they make cigars, with the opportunity to do some of it yourself or just smoke a free sample of the wide variety of flavored ones. Then you are mounted on horses and proceed to the ranch.

The horses were sturdy and well behaved... a breed bred especially for their endurance and disposition. The ride was varied and covered a lot of trail and included crossing a small river in a shallow area. Doing the cattle drive at the end was pretty cool.

When you arrive at the ranch, you can zip line a few times and swim in the pool or just relax. They show you a bit of the nature tour with coffee and chocolate samples and how they are processed. You also have music, a home cooked Dominican lunch, and photos preview of the photos they had been taking. This is also where you can leave a tip in the tip box.

After lunch you can go on the cattle drive if you chose that option, and meet the others down the path back to the cigar place. That is where you will leave to go back to your hotel, stopping at a large gift shop on the way.

Overall, I highly recommend this excursion. It was worth the money and lots of fun for all!
