After pickup from your Punta Cana hotel, you’re transferred to the Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park, a private 1,500-acre (600-hectare) reserve. On arrival at this pristine Caribbean setting, your professional guide provides a safety briefing in preparation for your off-road adventure.
Climb inside your two-person Club Car XRT950 vehicle that’s easy to drive. Settle in behind the driver’s seat of the 4x4 or opt to be a passenger while your guide leads a caravan of vehicles bumping along the network of nature trails.
Make a swim stop at Playa Blanca, aptly translated as White Beach for its sugar-white sands and unspoiled waters. Frolic in the sun, splash into the sea or rest under the shade of a coconut palm before continuing your tour.
Follow your guide along the reserve’s interpretive trails to swim in one of a dozen freshwater lagoons located in this tropical paradise. Keep an eye out for iguanas and some 80 species of birds and other fauna that inhabit the protected area.
When it’s time, board your catamaran for a short and smooth boat ride to a seaside eatery. Enjoy lunch and more free time at the beach or another swimming lagoon before continuing by catamaran to a final stop: a refreshing dip in the waist-deep waters of a natural pool in the Caribbean.
Toast your companions with complimentary rum, beer, soda and snacks before your full-day tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
