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.
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.
Pick up = spot on time - easy to communicate with befor e
Explanation of buggy= we covered the basics before setting off, however YOU MUST BE ABLE TO A DRIVE MANUAL CAR or this tour will be awful for you and all others there!
Tour guide = fantastic knowledge and helpful!
This was the best tour! So much fun and informative! The stops on this tour were amazing, the guide was great! Plenty of food, great pictures you can buy! I can and #39;t say enough how much fun this was! Very friendly tour company!
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.
totally amazing although it was just me and the tour guild I found it fun and informative and although it rained for the first 2hr I still had so much fun and it was the best trip I had that holiday and I would recommend it to anyone.
Great adventure and lots of fun. Great way to see the countryside.
This was an EXCELLENT excursion! This was by far the best handled excursion we took the entire week, from beginning to end. This family owned business took care of everything! Transporttion, lunch, horsback riding....it all went extremely smooth! What a great excursion, this on is a must do!
The best excursion ever! I would reccomend this to everyone! You will get really dirty (duh riding an open buggy) but worth every minute! Guides were fun and so informative. They showed us more than I ever expected; the real culture of DR. This is a must do if you are planning a trip! Thank you!!!
