Tour description provided by Viator

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.
After hotel pickup in Punta Cana, saddle up with a horse to suit your skill level—from beginner to advanced rider. Then follow your professional guide on a scenic horseback ride along the Anamuya River, whose natural surroundings provide plenty of photo ops. You’ll have the opportunity to pick up speed if you desire, or just walk or trot; your guide will customize the tour to each rider’s comfort and level of experience. The river travels up a mountain path as it winds its way through a tiny village to a beautiful oasis at a cigar plantation. Stop and grab a cold drink from the bar or sample one of the freshly made cigars rolled right in front of you (own expense). Enjoy a chance to mingle with the locals or just take in the peace and quiet before continuing on horseback to the ranch. If you’ve selected an optional upgrade, practice your herding skills on a cattle drive. (See description below for details.)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. You can go as many times as you’d like or descend to level ground to relax.After you’ve worked up an appetite, enjoy an amazing Dominican feast prepared with local recipes, complete with fresh coffee from the ranch. Give your lunch a chance to settle as you work on your tan by the pool or lounge in one of the hammocks. Before return transport to your hotel, 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 samples!Optional Upgrade: Horseback ride with a cattle driveAn extension of your ride on the Anamuya River, the cattle drive provides you with the opportunity to help herd cattle or horses the old-fashioned way: on horseback. Practice your cowboy or cowgirl skills as you wrangle the herd along this scenic area. No riding experience is required; your guide shows you everything you need to know for this rare and thrilling experience.
