Buggies - Self Drive Four Wheel Fun!

Duration: Half Day

buggies - self drive four wheel fun!

Occupying two-thirds of the island of Hispaniola, which it shares with Haiti, the Dominican Republic is one of the most diverse countries in the Caribbean. Boasting magnificent white sandy beaches, dramatic mountainous landscapes, spectacular wildlife and ancient colonial cities, there really is something for everyone here. If you want to venture of the beaten track during your holiday to witness the ‘real’ Dominican Republic, this popular self-drive buggy tour will reveal some of the country’s highlights as you venture across areas inaccessible by other tour vehicles. Lush countryside, local villages and spectacular coastline await you.

This action-packed afternoon will take you on an exciting off-road adventure through some of the Dominican Republic’s most beautiful northern landscapes in the Punta Cana region. After being picked up from your resort, you will be taken to a local ranch for a short test drive on your very own self-drive, four-wheel buggy. Once you are comfortable with your vehicle and its functions, you and your group will be led into the lush Caribbean countryside by a local experienced guide, who will point out areas of interest on the way.

Take in the scenic surroundings as you ride down dusty roads and along muddy dirt tracks, through babbling books and shallow rivers. Prepare to get dirty! On the way you will pass vast sugar cane fields, large banana and coconut plantations and other lush tropical vegetation before driving through a typical Dominican village, where friendly local adults and children will welcome you with waves and smiles. This is one of the highlights of the tour. The Dominican Republic is one of the poorest countries in the world, but the people are amongst the friendliest you will ever find.

You tour guide will then lead you onwards to the beautiful North Coast, where you will be greeted with spectacular views of the deep blue Atlantic Ocean and a glorious, secluded white-sand beach fringed by swaying coconut palms. You will get the chance to relax here and refresh yourself with water and soft drinks, which will be included in the tour.

Part of the excursion will also be done on horseback, enabling you to enjoy two exciting experiences in one afternoon. Available for anyone over the age of 18 years old, this unforgettable rural adventure is a wonderful addition to your holiday in the Dominican Republic.
