A horseback riding tour with a canopy zipline adventure is a great way to take in the gorgeous scenery of Punta Cana! Walk, trot or gallop—depending on your skill and preference—along the Anamuya River. Follow your expert guide to a cigar plantation before arriving back at the ranch for an adrenaline-pumping zipline through the trees. If you upgrade your tour, you’ll enjoy a thrilling cattle drive! After a Dominican feast, tour the plantation where coffee, vanilla and cocoa are grown—with plenty to sample. Round-trip hotel transport is included.
The fun starts as soon as you get picked up from your resort. Our entertaining guides will have you laughing as they tell you all about the incredible countryside you are travelling through. Learn about the culture, schools, entertainment and life in general from an insiders point of view. After a short scenic drive you will arrive at our launching point an authentic hand made cigar shop where we disembark to begin our eco-adventure. Here you will discover the different scents and tastes of some of the finest tobacco in the world. Sample a cherry or chocolate cigar while they explain the methods in making their cigars and if you want to give it a try they will assist you in rolling your own. Next it's time to introduce you to our fantastic Higueyano horses. Don't worry if you have never ridden before, the combination of our great horses and guides ensures your first time will be an easy and safe experience. We ride out through a small village and then down a beautiful mountain path where we make our way to a flat meadow. Here our more adventurous riders have the opportunity to gallop across the countryside while the others meander along a shorter route at a walk or a slow trot. We customize each and every ride to the level of experience for each of our riders.Traveling further down the mountain path we reach the Anamuya River which we travel alongside and across several times. Those that want to get wet, can go deeper in the river when safe conditions are present and those that want the dryer route will take the higher path until we reach the bottom of our enchanting, secluded ranch. The fun doesn’t end as you disembark from your horse! Get your adrenaline pumping while you soar back across the river on a safe and fun, double-cable zipline. View the breathtaking landscape from a different perspective as professional guides instruct and assist you through every part of your zipline adventure.
After you’ve worked up an appetite, enjoy an amazing Dominican feast prepared with local recipes, complete with fresh coffee from the ranch. Then it's time for more fun while you take a tour of the ranch and discover the many varieties of plants found here, including cocoa, coffee and vanilla. You’ll observe how cocoa is processed and, of course, enjoy plenty of fresh samples and experience Dominican rituals and culture.
Once you've caught your breath we will mount up again and begin our journey back along the river and up the mountain to the village. Back at our starting point, our vehicle is waiting to take you back to your resort as we say our goodbyes to our new friends making for a complete day of adventure and learning in the Dominican Republic in a safe, fun and friendly environment.
