Punta Cana Half Day Dune Buggy Adventure

Your friendly and professional guide will collect you from your Punta Cana hotel and transport you to your dune buggy as part of this Punta Cana Half-Day Dune Buggy Adventure. Upon arrival you’ll receive a safety and rules briefing before taking off on the trip of a lifetime!

These speedy vehicles, complete with stick-shift transmission and VW engines, have unmatched agility. Choose from a four-person buggy with other travelers or steering solo as you make your way through the stunning and diverse landscapes of Dominican Republic.

Pass colorful Caribbean houses en route to sample real Dominican coffee. Then follow along the natural paths lined with palm trees and banana plantations towards an authentic limestone mine. You’ll return using a paved road through La Caiba and Macao, where you’ll visit a local colmado (grocery store) and interact with residents while you sip on cold drinks and enjoy savory snacks.

This trip includes an epic stretch of white sand near Macao Beach, complete with stunning ocean views. There’s even time to take a dip before returning to Punta Cana.

Please note: Dune buggies have manual transmissions and operate with a 4-speed stick shift. No training is available and drivers must know how to drive a manual transmission.

Overall, we totally recommend this tour! You definitely will get dirty, so wear clothes you plan on throwing away bring a bandana and wear a bathing suit underneath and bring a towel. But it is really fun getting splashed with mud! Our English tour was quite small, only us, the tour guide, and one other family, so youll most likely get your own dune buggy which is great! Throughout the tour we stopped a few times where our tour guide, Mark, told us about the real Dominican Republic that tourists dont normally see. It was so interesting and he is so knowledgeable and funny! It is a must that you drive stick shift and well. Also, on the first part of the tour, the roads are very bumpy so if youre sensitive to that, beware. In a nutshell, this tour is a must and we had so much fun!

We had the BEST day with Mark. He not only provided us with a safe adventure through the Dominican Republic, but he also taught us so much about the people and the country. It was a perfect trip for my 7 year old as well. It was beautiful, fun and truly a wonderful day. Thank you Mark!!!! We have great memories. Way better than any other dune buggy excursion. Others at our hotel complained about their trip and were very jealous of the small number and personal attention we received. Do not look any further!

This was an amazing tour. The tour driver was so knowledgeable and we learned a lot and saw A LOT of different scenery. Really really enjoyed this excursion. I would do it again. The only thing that I wish was that the seats were movable so for short people like me it would be easier to drive. Oh and you get VERY muddy on this trip LOL. Don't plan to wear those clothes again on your vacation.

This tour was absolutely amazing! We almost had to cancel because my father got terribly carsick on a separate excursion and was wary of heading out of the resort, but we are so glad we didn't! Angela made sure to personally reach out to us before the tour to confirm reservations and offer any help she had to provide. We were picked up right on time at our resort in a van and then took the relatively short and very peaceful! drive to the operation's base where we separated into two groups based on which language we spoke. From there we went through some instructions with our guide, Daniel, and were put into our buggies. Our group had three separate buggies, one for each couple, and Daniel was great. He made sure to rotate the order in which we followed him and took a lot of wonderful photos. The tour started out in the rain but it didn't hamper our experience at all -- in fact I think it enhanced it! We stopped by a local market where Daniel explained what happened there and gave us some facts about the locals and their lives. Here we tried the coffee which is AWESOME! and chocolate. We got to drive for quite a long time before stopping at another market, this time in town, where we had drinks and snacks. Our last stop was at the beach in Macao I think. Some locals tried to come up to us to sell us photos with animals and Daniel stepped in to fend them off when they got a little persistent. He made us feel extremely welcome, the tour was absolutely fantastic, the people that were on the tour with us were great too -- this was basically the highlight of the trip and we are so glad we ended up going.

We did the half day tour with Daniel as our guide. We had a wide range of ages from 75 to 12. We had a great time getting muddy and l arming about DR culture. The staff was great. This was low stress / high reward outing. I highly recommend this adventure!

Loved this tour, such good fun take old clothes as you will get covered in mud from head to toe, we stopped at a small village which was interesting to see how the locals live. We ended up on a beautiful beach. Was good to see outside the resort, we would do this tour again.

This trip was legit awesome. The perfect way to experience the island and the people. Could not be any happier. Driving stick is the only way to buggy. Also, the best way to get dirty. My wife and I LOVED IT!
