Your friendly and professional guide will collect you from your Punta Cana hotel and transport you to your dune buggy as part of this Punta Cana Full-Day Dune Buggy Adventure to Lemon Lagoon Bay. Upon arrival you’ll receive a safety and rules briefing before taking off on the trip of a lifetime!

These speedy vehicles, complete with stick-shift transmission and VW engines, have unmatched agility. Choose from a four-person buggy with other travelers or steering solo as you make your way through 115 miles (190 km) of Dominican Republic landscapes.

You’ll make your way through the famous beach town of Uvero Alto, then on to the rice fields of Nissibon. Make a stop at one of the local colmados for an ice-cold soft drink.

Once you’re feeling refreshed, take off through Playa La Vacama, through a secluded 9-mile (15 km) palm-lined beach. 

From La Vacama, it’s not much further to the village where you'll enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. Then, the group will head to the lagoon where you'll take a boat cruise though mangroves to a deserted beach.  

At the beach you'll have time to explore and enjoy a fresh coconut. Then head back over the lagoon and stop at Doña Alexandrina's house for some local fruit and a coffee before taking the buggies back to Bavaro. 



Enjoy the amenities of this striking hotel before saddling up for a 10-minute horseback ride along the stunning sandy beach. After the ride, you’ll cruise in your dune buggy to Zadanja. Quench your thirst with another cold drink and snack from the colmado before returning to Punta Cana and your hotel of choice.

Please note: Dune buggies have manual transmissions and operate with a 4-speed stick shift. No training is available and drivers must know how to drive a manual transmission.

This was an amazing day! Lots of driving through about every terrain. Lots of stops and food! You won't go hungry!. You definitely need to be a confident standard driver! Those buggy's can move and you get highway, in town, off road, mud etc. Very scenic views and local stops and a few amazing beeches! It would be cool if they had a map of the tour you take so you can see where you have gone. Other than that this was the best excursion we've ever been on! I would do this again in a heartbeat!!!!

This trip includes it all. You get some highway cruising, some beach-front driving, several miles through a palm grove along a secluded coastline, and a run through a fairly muddy and pothole infested jungle trail which the buggies make easy work of. You also get several snacks and a traditional lunch at a jungle hotel, a horeseback ride where they open up fresh coconuts for you to drink from, and to see a very secluded family's way of living far away from paved roads. The driving pace was quicker than I expected which was a pleasant surprise, but by no means reckless. You should be fairly confident in driving a standard as the description says, but only one person per buggy has to drive. Overall this is among my favorite day trips ever. You will get very dirty. You will have a very good time. HIGHLY recommend.

Have to say......BEST experience of our trip!!!!!! we got to experience Punta Cana and the lifestyle in a true form. The description does not do this excursion justice. We drove on highways, beaches, back roads, villages. You name it, we did it. Got to drive our own buggy. Guide was insightful, warm, and shared all he knew about the culture of Dominican republic with us. We got muddy so prepare for this. My husband drove but I had the time of my life. Would rate this a 10 star adventure. Would do it over and over if we come back. Worth every penny spent.

We had an absolutely wonderful time. It was so much fun to be driving all throughout the Dominican Republic countryside. We stopped at this incredibly beautiful hotel minutes from the beach, in the middle of nowhere and had a great Dominican lunch. We got totally covered in mud on the way. We loved that it went to not touristy areas. We got to see Dominican life and how beautiful the country is. Would totally do another tour with the tour group.

Charlie was great and the tour was easily the most fun tour I've done in a long time! Given we've been marooned on our resort until this trip, it gives a good perspective of what the DR is really like. If you take one thing away from this review, it's that you should not bring clothes you care about. You WILL get mud everywhere and it's unavoidable now matter how good a driver you think you might be. Even though it's mentioned in the tour info, be sure someone in your group is comfortable with driving a manual transmission...my buggy had a fussy tranny as it gave me a fair bit of trouble downshifting and I've been driving stick daily for 15 years. Charlie instructed his guy to check it out as soon as we got back, but I was stuck with it for the 100 miles. There are very reasonably priced photos available for purchase after the trip that get burned to CD I just need to find a DVD drive somewhere now.
