Fantastic excursion - provides adventure with opportunity to see the park. It would have been helpful to know the difficulty of this trip - there was more walking than anticipated and one woman couldn't walk to the lagoon. However, that was no problem - she sat near the entrance and waited for us! The guides were excellent and very protective of us on the course. Fortunately, all four of our drivers were excellent and had obviously had experience! Staff were very helpful - even brought us back to our hotel when the others went to the beach so that we could maintain our dinner reservations. This situation occurred because we were assigned a 2 pm tour rather than the 10 am tour we requested. Bring your own bandana - they charge 5 - but you do need one due to the dust! We had no need for insect repellant.
I highly recommend this tour!! It was seriously such a blast! I dont know if the tours are assigned to different companies but we had Side by Side and they were great! They give you huge glasses for the beer and rum and coke on the boat....and seriously filled the cup 3/4 with rum! I would suggest getting the CD of pictures taken, we didnt and I regret it after seeing that the photographers would almost give you a whole photo shoot with the gorgeous surroundings. It was a party on that boat for sure!! We almost wanted to do the same tour twice!
Amazing tour, could not fault this. All the hosts were helpful and friendly and made us feel welcome. Amazing lunch supplied on a beautiful beach, was truly a wonderful setting.
we had a blast..
Was a really fun trip.. exceeded expectations and had a great time!
The Off Road Buggy Tour was fun. The ground was dry but still fun to ride around. Make sure to bring a bandanna, they charge 5.00 per bandanna. After the buggy ride we walked through a path to the beautiful, refreshing lagoon. Took a dip, and headed back on the buggies.
There was a car ready for us to head over to the Catamaran. We were greeted upon arrival with a glass of Champagne.
After a short ride to Playa Blanca we were seated under tropical palm trees for a delicious lunch.
After lunch we had time for pictures and a quick dip in the ocean. We then headed back on the Catamaran to sail to the Natural Pool. Were we enjoyed drinksBeer,Rum and Champagne in the water which was waist deep, and enjoyed the awesome afternoon. Great trip!!
really great day out. the off road buggys were quite the trip and yes, we got very muddy but that was part of the fun. Lunch on Playa Blanca was OK, not great but OK and then we swam and lounged and chatted with the other guestsbefore heading out on the catamaran. That was a fun afternoon, not totally over thetop drinking but just enough that we all had a great time
So much fun! Even though the ground was dry and there werent any mud puddles to splash through the off-road buggy adventure was a blast with ALOT of bouncing around. The cool dip in the natural spring was a great refresher and the catamaran ride, champagne, and a 7-course I think lunch served on the beach was amazing! This excursion is definitely worth the money!
Best trip I have ever done!
Tour was amazing, would recommend it. Buggy's where amazing fun. Catamaran was not a long cruise more of a stop in the sea for a padle, though had music and rum to keep you happy :-)

Highly recommended! We have an amazing time will definitely repeat this tour
Amazing time, great food, great music, staff was incredible, drinks were fantastic, highly recommended
PROS: Lots of fun, knowledgeable multilingual guides, open bar
CONS: Tourist trap once you're there, not clearly organized, open bar
Had a great time on this trip. The bus picked us up at the scheduled time exactly, the staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and fluent in at least four different languages. The cart are not "electric zero-emission" like the description here says, they are big, beefy, gas-sucking hogs. But they are FUN! Put the hammer down and hold on! They're more fun the faster you go, and they handle the bumps better at speed, too.
The lagoon was nice and refreshing after that initial chill, it does get a little crowded if everyone jumps in at once. The hike to get there takes less than 10 minutes over a fairly easy trail - it's wide and not too difficult, but it does have a number of roots and rocks to deal with.
So things to know about for the buggy tour - it's a ripoff for anything once you're inside there, but if you're prepared beforehand it shouldn't be an issue. They sell you bandannas for $5 to cover your face, and if you didn't bring your own, you can either cheerfully pay them or spend the boat ride picking bugs and grit out of your teeth. Forgot insect repellent? That's another $10 - you get the idea.
After the buggies, it's a five minute bus ride to the marina, where you load up on the boat and head out to a semi-private resort beach for lunch. Lunch was fantastic - multiple courses served fresh from the resort restaurant. This was a gourmet meal, not a cheap box lunch! It's open bar and game on the rest of the cruise. The boat guides are friendly, funny, and everyone is dancing and begging for more by the end of the trip!
Overall, it's a fun day without trying to pack too much in. Be prepared with a bandanna, insect repellent, sunscreen, and maybe some snacks, and you'll be all set. The only thing that could be a little better is some better organization, but overall a great experience.
Nice excursion, well priced. Very knowledgeable guide. We had a ball.
Everything was as promised. You get very dirty in the buggy ride, but the catamaran ride washes it all away. The lunch served was first class with lots of food and choices.
This tour was amazing the clear water lagoon was one of the best parts.
Wonderful trip. Wonderful experience
Was not happy about the 7:10am pickup time from the resort but the excursion absolutely made up for it. The 4x4 tour was a blast and the catamaran was absolutely worth it. It turned out to be the best part of the vacation by far. Highly recommend it but do not expect a detailed overview of what is happening and when, just go with the flow, relax, and enjoy it!
Best excursion we took in Punta Cana! The buggies are so fun and the beach they take you to for the catamaran and lunch is stunning. This tour is well worth the money.
