Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! Prepare yourself for a half-day Dominican Republic adventure as you zip through the beautiful countryside on a manual transmission dune buggy. Departing from Punta Cana, you'll travel past colorful houses and across the breathtaking landscape of banana plantations and farmland. Hop on a dune buggy and explore the true Dominican Republic!

Highlights

  • Get off the beaten track in a 4x4
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Small-group tour
  • Led by a local guide
After being picked up from your Punta Cana hotel, you'll receive brief safety instructions and rules from your knowledgeable guide. Then, jump inside your dune buggy and get ready to start the adventure of a lifetime! With original VW engines and a 4-speed stick-shift transmission, these vehicles are sure to impress with their speed and agility!

The adventure starts as you head out into the Dominican countryside, passing colorful Caribbean houses along the way. Your first stop will be for a real Dominican coffee, ensuring your energy level is high for the rest of your drive!

Following the nature path and passing by palm trees and banana plantations, you'll reach an authentic limestone mine. Driving back on a paved road to the villages of La Caiba and Macao, you'll make a stop at a local colmado (grocery store), where you can join local people from the countryside doing their daily shopping. Enjoy snacks and drinks at the colmado then head over to Macao Beach, one of the last natural beaches in the Dominican Republic.

Drive along the white sand and enjoy breathtaking views of the beach and ocean. If there's time, you'll stop for a quick dip in the ocean before returning back 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.

Was really awesome!
We and #39;ve been traveling everywhere and have done many activities,but my 11 years old son said this activity was the best so far!

Reviewed by: Jessica D, July 2016

This was the best part of our trip! Our guide was great, the stops were informative and interesting, along with tasty, and the views were awesome!

My advice: bring a bandana to cover your nose and mouth, as it does get dusty. Also, you will see lots of little kids, and they love treats.
