Take our open safari truck to see the real Dominican Republic, beyond your resort in Punta Cana!
Leaving Punta Cana and traveling towards Higuey, the largest city in the Dominican Republic’s eastern region, the excursion makes a stop at a local school where the safari team sponsors a community project that benefits several villages with basic education.
Passing through the vast sugar cane fields so common to the east of the Dominican Republic, the tour then visits one of the country’s most famous churches – the Basilica de Higuey, dedicated to Our Lady of the Altagracia, the patron saint of the Dominican Republic.
Leaving the city, we’ll take a turn towards the Cordillera Oriental Mountain Range, averaging some 900 feet above sea level, before heading deep into the Dominican country side. Our safari truck then passes by two rural ranches where we’ll learn about and taste several genuine Dominican products: cocoa, coffee, tobacco, and mamajuana (widely considered a natural aphrodisiac).
After a short horseback ride around the country ranch, you’ll be treated to an amazing Dominican buffet lunch, where a lazy hammock will be waiting for your afternoon siesta. To finish the day, we visit one of the most beautiful beaches in the area, Macao, for a dip in the ocean and some boogie boarding, before returning to your hotel.
