We all know that Punta Cana has wonderful beaches and amazing resorts, so I thought I would tell you about an exciting tour adventure I did during recent my visit.
You will see spectacular views and unforgettable experiences. A camera is a must!
It was with Bavaro Runners in an open air adventurous safari truck.
We ventured into sugar cane fields, coffee and cocao plantations. We drove to the jungle-covered mountains and learned all about Dominican culture and customs directly from the local farmers. We also visited a typical Dominican home and ate fruit right off the trees!
The most fascinating part of the tour was to visit the Cayacoa Taino Secrets cave with the purpose to allow you to learn more about the Pre-Colombian history. They put on a tribal show in which I was chosen to be the queen. 🙂
- Transportation on the safari truck
- Lunch and drinks (bottled water, rum, beer, sodas)
- English speaking guide – the best I have ever experienced… so funny and friendly
- Horseback ride
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes and don’t forget to bring a hat, sunglasses, camera, sunblock, and money for shopping and/or tips.
Runners Adventures has lots of different excursions. Here are few examples:
Buggies Adventure – This is something on my list to do during my next visit.
The journey takes you through the true Dominican countryside leaving the hotel resorts behind. After a pit stop for a refreshing drink, you will continue to drive taking in the views of the local homesteads. Off road adventure is the ultimate way to travel!
Side by Side
Discover Punta Cana aboard a fun and modern buggy. Take the wheel and drive on an exclusive route through this impressive project and make a stop at a spectacular and unspoiled beach. Get the chance to visit the most beautiful ecological reserve in the Caribbean where you can swim in the crystal-clear water.
Zip Lines – I watched this from a distance and would highly recommend it.
A true adrenaline rush, not recommended for the faint hearted! Feel the wind rushing past you as you soar from platform to platform like a true jungle king. Set against the lush tropical mountain forests of Punta Cana, this will be a truly unforgettable experience!
All tours can be booked with MLT Vacations or at your resort.
