Full description
Your full-day safari from Punta Cana begins when you’re picked up at your accommodation and head off to visit a Dominican family in their home. Enjoy a drink of freshly made coffee or chocolate with the family. Take a walk through a coffee and chocolate plantation and see how these natural products are harvested and produced. Stop at a local school, meet the children, and learn about local education. You’ll have a delicious family-style Dominican lunch at a mountaintop ranch that offers panoramic views of the Punta Cana and Bavaro areas. See native animals such as crocodiles, iguanas, turtles, and others. Watch the process of hand-rolling famous Dominican cigars – and give one a try! Buy some souvenirs at a rum shack, where you’ll find local products such as rum, cigars, coffee, and lots more, all at local prices! See how coconut oil and milk are produced in a small countryside workshop. Relax, swim, cool off in the refreshing waters of the Anamuya River or float on one of the tubes available with a cocktail in your hand enjoying the real Dominican style at easy afternoon experience. This is an all-inclusive tour with a free flow of purified water, soft drinks, rum, and beer throughout the day. Your fun and professional English-speaking guide will keep it interesting with stories about the history, culture, plants, animals, and local way of life.

Entertaining and enriching excursion, which can be recommended. Most thanks to the guide George and the driver Vladimir, a wonderful radar couple who knew their Dominican. George had the ability to tell the living with a lot of humor. Vladimir also had a really strong ability to handle the vehicle on the roads and outside without disturbing the entire journey. If you are thinking that there is something to do, the answer is YES with the recommendation that you get George and Vladimir.

A really fun day out!

A really worthwhile excursion. Well organised, interesting and FUN! A great day out thanks to Angel (our excellent guide) and Yuma (our careful, safe driver). We took other excursions which included (without us realising it beforehand) similar things as this one e.g. demonstrations of coffee/cocoa processes, cigar making etc - but this one was SO much better. Thanks for a lovely day!

A great excursion with great encounters

We loved the excursion with Jesus and Wilson, we had a great day and the other very nice passengers too, we met lovely people with human stories, and met local artists and tasted authentic products, what to ask for more. The only downside is the poverty of some villages that bcp pain but despite their life situation they keep smiling, a beautiful life lessons, and as Jesus said "keep smiling and the joy of life is the most important in life "thanks again
