Five Star Tour
Duration: Half Day
Immerse yourself in the beauty and culture of the Dominican Republic on this eye-opening adventure through the countryside. See how the locals live, sample the traditional cuisine and journey through beautiful landscapes. Sugar plantations, forests, rivers, waterfalls, beaches and horse riding are just some of the highlights that await you. This is a wonderful way to explore the natural treasures of the Caribbean.
Discovered by Columbus in the 15th century, the Dominican Republic covers two thirds of the Hispaniola Island which it shares with Haiti. If you want to travel off the beaten track and experience the real heart of the country first hand, this exciting excursion will open your eyes to its exquisite natural beauty and friendly people, who will make your experience all the more enjoyable.
Travelling through the beautiful region of Juan Dolio, put yourself in the shoes of a Dominican for the day as you learn about the rural lives of the local people. Visit a traditional home and enjoy the taste of freshly-made, home roasted coffee. The warmth and hospitality of your hosts will make you feel right at home. This nation is one of the poorest in the world but the people are amongst the happiest you will find. Sample delicious tropical fruits from a local orchard and see how coffee and sugar are grown.
You will then enjoy a typical Dominican buffet lunch before we travel onwards through some of the Caribbean’s most picturesque countryside. Take in the scenery, people and wildlife as we drive past sugar cane fields, banana plantations, rugged mountains and villages; through rivers, streams and waterfalls, stopping for some wonderful photo opportunities on the way. The Dominican Republic is a country of great diversity, which is just one of the reasons why it is so appealing to travellers.
One of the highlights of the tour is a visit to the beautiful white-sand beaches on the southern coast, where you will get the opportunity to go horse riding across the palm-fringed sands whilst enjoying breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea. This is an exhilarating experience not to be missed. Alternatively, relax and soak up the sun, stroll along the beach looking for beautiful Caribbean shells or take a refreshing dip in the crystal clear aquamarine waters. A holiday in the Dominican Republic doesn’t get much better than this.
