Hop aboard a dune buggy for a full-day adventure and experience the best Punta Cana has to offer! Drive your manual transmission dune buggy through rice fields and along Playa La Vacama. Share your 4-passenger buggy with another party or keep all the driving to yourselves (depending on which option you select). Enjoy refreshments plus lunch at a local restaurant, then heat to the lagoon where you will take a boat cruise through mangroves to a beach. Receive personal attention from your guide on this small-group tour, limited to 12 people.
After being picked up from your Punta Cana hotel, you'll receive brief safety instructions and rules from your knowledgeable guide. Then, jump inside your dune buggy and get ready to start the adventure of a lifetime! With original VW engines and a stick-shift transmission, these vehicles have amazing speed and agility. Whether or not you choose to share the driving of your 4-person buggy with another party, you’ll enjoy an unbeatable adventure through 115 miles (190 km) of rugged interior in the Dominican Republic.Start your journey by driving to Uvero Alto, a famous beach town on the northeast side of the island. From there, you'll head inland towards Nissibon, passing workers in the rice fields tending to their crops. On the way, stop at a typical Dominican colmado (grocery store) for a refreshing soft drink.Then, steer through Playa La Vacama and drive approximately 9 miles (15 km) on a secluded, palm-fringed beach. Feel free to jump off your dune buggy and take a refreshing swim in the ocean to cool off!
From La Vacama, it’s not much further to the village where you'll enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. Then, the group will head to the lagoon where you'll take a boat cruise though mangroves to a deserted beach.
At the beach you'll have time to explore and enjoy a fresh coconut. Then head back over the lagoon and stop at Doña Alexandrina's house for some local fruit and a coffee before taking the buggies back to Bavaro.
Please note: dune buggies have manual transmissions and operate with a 4-speed stick shift. No training is available and drivers must know how to drive a manual transmission.
