A must if you want to really experience real life in the DR.We drove through many small towns,seeing schools and the children,the homes and businesses of the people.The farm lands and some of Irma's aftermath on this beautiful island.The people are so welcoming and hard working.Maria's house was very interesting and we loved learning about the coffee,cocoa,vanilla tobacco,seeing and tasting first hand how they are grown.We had a nice lunch and stopped for the horseback ride.That was a bit sad. Dogs run freely throughout the island and all are thin,the horses were very thin.I just wanted to give them food and water. Our guide Mimi and our driver were very entertaining.Mimi is the real deal!!!lots of laughter.We were picked up on time at our resort and had a great and memorable day! Plenty of water provided all day.

Our guide J.J. was very informative and kept us laughing. We got to see how sugar cane juice is extracted, cigars are rolled, and we took a ride across the coffee plantation on horseback. Lunch was great. Real Dominican food. At Maria's House we explored how many dominican products are made and got to taste everything , yum!
