The Dominican Republic epitomises most people’s idea of a Caribbean island – miles and miles of palm-fringed beaches. But besides its stunning coastline, the small country also comprises rich rainforests, mesmerising mountains and sandy dunes, making it one of the region’s most geographically diverse countries!
6 day / 5 night itinerary
Travellers will embark on a gastronomic adventure full of flavour, colour, and emotions. The first stop will see them greeted with a refreshing local beer while the guide briefs the group on the experience to come. In a food truck park, they’ll taste some of the most delicious authentic Dominican finger food while listening to great music and having a good time. This way of enjoying food awakes the senses beyond taste, making this a very singular event. They continue through the evening sampling various different Latin American snacks and end up at the beach, having made friends along the way.
One of Punta Cana’s most exciting excursions – adventure buggies! They will ride powerful terra cross vehicles as they zoom through the Dominican countryside. The experience will take them to visit an organic co-op farm to learn about coconut oil, tobacco, rum, coffee, chocolate and our world-famous chocolate tea farming processes. They’ll then continue to an Indian cave featuring a crystal clear natural spring for a rejuvenating swim. They will also pass by a Taino Village for a local show. The ride ends at the spectacular Macao beach.
