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, youll 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, its not much further to the village whereyou'll enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. Then, the group will head to thelagoon 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 thelagoon and stop at Doa Alexandrina's house for some local fruit and a coffee before taking the buggiesback 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.
