Family Dune Buggy
Howie_G, Apr 2022
It was a great outing. Our guide was amazing. The cave was our favorite. Driving through the mud was awesome as well. Will definitely recommend!!! Thank you
Long day but trips were fun.
Janel_W, Apr 2022
Each excursion itself was great but having the two excursions together was a bad idea. We were supposed to get lunch in between each trip but we did not. Didn't get lunch until almost 3 o'clock. We had to wait a considerable amount of time between trips with no information. Very frustrating.
An epic day of adventure and fun.
Jeannette_H, Apr 2022
We had an absolutely fantastic time on both parts of this package There were 11 of us in our group and it was super easy to get it all booked. They picked us up from our resort with no problems and took us where we needed to be for both parts of the day. Our day started out with torrential rain showers, so we were obviously a bit worried about how the day was going to go. Wet and miserable was the expectation and our guide Charlie made no bones about letting us know we were GOING to get muddy. But he did it with a great sense of humor and pointed us towards where we could buy bandannas and protective glasses if we felt so inclined. Once we got in our buggies though, it was time for some fun! It was my boyfriend's birthday and I decided not to be THAT girl and let him go for it, lol. We hit every puddle as fast as he could, lol. We were soaked! It was awesome. Everyone in our group was covered head to toe. The cenote stop was super fun. Many people jumped in and they got some great pictures of the group. The stop for coffee and cocoa wasn't my thing, but the people were nice and my group made some good purchases. Charlie was again our amazing guide/bartender this time on our catamaran/snorkel cruise. We had a blast again. Fun music, fun people and a gorgeous cruise on the ocean. The sand bar stop with all of the other boats that go there in the evening was something to behold. I can't even explain it. It was like a gigantic party in like 2 feet of water. I would definitely recommend this package to anyone that is up for a day of fun off your resort. Very worth the time and money.
So glad we did this - made the trip!
Jeannette_J, Apr 2022
We had SUCH a great time. Our tour guide Charlie was the best. He was funny, attentive, personable and very protective of us. The cave jump into the pool was a pleasant surprise!
A pretty good day! Buggies and beaches!
Kevin_N, Mar 2022
Trip got started late with hotel pickups running behind but we did receive notice via trip advisor notification. Once we arrived to the buggy business we signed safety consent and then it took a very confusing and lengthy time to get ready to go. We travelled in the buggies to a cave and were able to go for a refreshing dip in the water. Back in the buggies and travelled to a coffee/cacao plantation where we sampled goods and could purchases offerings from this area. We travelled by buggy to a beautiful beach and went for a swim. Overall the buggy portion was fun but there were numerous breakdowns but all quickly attended to. This ended the morning…back to our own resorts for lunch. In the afternoon we were picked up and taken to our snorkelling adventure. The snorkelling was good but I wish it could have been longer. We hopped back on the boat and went to an enclosure where some guests had payed to swim with stingrays and nurse sharks. Last leg of the afternoon took us to an area where we parked in shallow waters and enjoyed some swimming and music and good times. There was plenty of adult bevies and snacks. We had a good time but wish there would have been more snorkelling.
Fun experience and ask for Luis!
Jessica_W, Mar 2022
We had a fabulous experience and Luis, our guide, was awesome! He watched out for us with the locals and made sure we had lots of fun experiences! The snorkeling excursion part was my absolute favorite!
The dune buggies was...
ilena_c, Mar 2022
The dune buggies was amazing had a great time staff was amazing and helped every way they could. The only thing I didn’t like which had nothing to do with the staff of the dune buggies we made a stop where they make coffee chocolate and green tea, they sold souvenirs there and were on top of you to buy something trying to force it if you don’t say no and walk away you’ll probably spend a lot.
Dune buggy riding, snorkeling with Charlie
Carola_O, Mar 2022
Dune buggy driving through the streets and towns of DR was great. Charlie was the best host ever for snorkeling, be prepared to party with Charlie.
Dune buggie yes, snorkel..no
Janelle_W, Dec 2021
I’m giving this three stars because the Dune buggies were amazing. Definitely a highlight of our trip. My husband and I shared a buggie and took turns aiming for every mud hole in site lol we were coed in mud! Charlie was a great Guide, very accommodating and fun. Note: you do not get to dune buggie on the beach so don’t let that picture become an expectation lol The snorkel is not a snorkel, and they do not provide flippers as advertised. So if you are not a strong swimmer this pit stop is not for you. We were in the water to snorkel a total of 7mins. That’s it. 7. The water was pretty choppy which didn’t bother me and my husband because we are pros at snorkeling but those with no flippers had a very hard time. The tour can’t control the current of the water but to advertise as a snorkel trip and then only be in the water for 7 mins was VERY disappointing. Then there was another group that boarded our boat from another boat and they had a swim with sharks stop for 30 mins! So I paid for snorkel and fins and got cheated while having the pleasure of sitting on the boat and watching another unexpected group enjoy their excursion. The fresh water stop was more like murky river water… not the crystal clear Carribean water you would expect. Louis, our guide for the snorkel was a wonderful host and we did have a blast dancing with him on the boat. He made every effort to apologize for the Mia leading advertisement and made the effort to celebrate our birthdays. He definitely helped turn the tide of this excursion and we still had a good time on the boat. I recommend the dune buggie if you can find that alone cause this definitely wasn’t a snorkel trip which is something I look forward to every time I travel.

Terrible Transportation
Ravan_S, Nov 2021
This was an amazing experience. We enjoyed the beach, swimming in the cenote, the ATV rides, swimming with the shark and sting rays, and the dance party that occurred towards the end of the catamaran ride. My biggest complaint about this experience was the transportation. We had an all day excursion. We were supposed to be picked up at 7:30. We rushed eating to get to the lobby 7:30 because our hotel dining hall opened at 7. However the truck didn't come to get us until 8 am. There was also a 1 hour turn around between lunch and our second pick up. Again we rushed to wash the mud off of our skin, eat lunch and to get to the lobby boy 1:30. Again, our transportation was 30-40 minutes late. After our tour ended, the tour guide came and called everyone's hotel. There was a couple missing, but we left anyway. We dropped off one person. Then our driver got a call and turned the bus around. At first I was the only person who noticed and asked why we turned around. The driver ignored me. Then, another passenger went to the front of the bus to ask why we turned around. The driver said he forgot someone at the catamaran location. This was after 20 minutes of driving, so then we drove back 20 additional minutes to pick up the missing couple. Which made us late for dinner. Over all, I was annoyed with thr transportation. If this is how it has to be then include breakfast and lunch on the trip and we can figure out our own dinner.
