Fly to the Samaná Peninsula on this day trip from Punta Cana. Explore the area during this full-day trip, including a stop at a mountain plantation to taste fresh coffee, cacao and honey. Ride a horse up rocky trails through the forest to vist El Limón Waterfall, then enjoy lunch at a seaside restaurant. Cruise to picturesque Cay Levantado to relax on the white sand beach under swaying palms. Round-trip transportation, transfers and expert guides on each leg of the trip are included.
After an early morning pickup at your Punta Cana hotel, head to the ariport. A welcome committee featuring drinks and music will greet you and you'll board your turboprop plane. Admire the aerial views of the Dominican Republic's eastern coast during the short flight to Samaná.
A safari truck will meet you at the airport. Climb aboard and enjoy the scenic ride to a mountain plantation in the Sierra de Samaná, where you'll walk amongst the native plants and fruit-bearing trees. Taste honey, cassava bread, coffee and cacao of unrivaled freshness.
Travel to a horseback riding ranch in El Limón, and after a safety briefing, mount your trusty steed and hoof it into the lush forest. Following the Arroyo Chico into the mountainous landscape, arrive at the spectacular El Limón Waterfall. Swim in the lagoon at the bottom of the 165-foot (50-meter) fall to cool off and relax for about half an hour.
Climb back into your safari jeep and drive down to Samaná's pier for a quick tour of the town. Eat an authentic Dominican lunch at a local restaurant with beautiful bay views, including wine, beer and select cocktails.
At the pier, hop onto a catamaran for a ride to Cayo Levantado, known for its soft white sand and swaying palm trees. Spend an hour relaxing on the beach, swimming or snorkeling. Enjoy a provided refreshing drink.
Then, it's back to the main island by boat, back to the airport by ground transfer, and back to Punta Cana by turboprop plane to finish your day of adventure.
We had a really cool and funny guide Carlo who entertained us during the whole tour. I especially enjoyed the whale watching and the quick stop on the beautiful island Cayo Levantado. The only negative thing about this trip was the horsebackriding. The state of the path was quite bad and the horses looked very skinny. I felt sorry for the animals. Besides that I can highly recommend this trip.
The tour was awesome. All guides were great. We took my 75 year old mother and the young men with horses took extremely great care of her. At one point they even picked her up and carried her. I would definately recommend this trip.
This tour was amazing!
We had a great day, and so well organised. The hotel pick-up was on time in a nice coach, the flight right on time and comfortable. The tour was fun and we saw and tasted so much that day. The horse ride was ok, but the track was in really bad shape which made us worry about the safety of the horses - we did see one injured. But the waterfall was nice, and the highlight of the day was being in Samana, great lunch, then the time on the beach on the Cayo Levantado was outstanding. Thoroughly recommended. The high point throughout the day were the wonderful staff that made it fun, informative, and a great success. our leader, Carlos, was the best. Would have ben 5 star if the state of the path of horse ride had been better.
