- An authentic slice of the Dominican Republic
- Visit with a local family
- Taste hot chocolate made with the finest Dominican cocoa
This Dominican Republic sightseeing tour gives you a genuine flavour of Puerto Plata’s incredible wildlife and welcoming people. Picked up in a funky safari-style truck, you’ll be led by a friendly guide around this tropical paradise, beginning at the atmospheric mangrove system of Guzmancito. Here many thousands of amphibian and exotic bird species find a protected habitat. Later on, you’ll see another landscape entirely at Maimón Bay, a natural monument where the environment ranges from the iconic swaying palm trees to harsh, desert-like terrain brimming with spiky cacti.
The tour pauses at the home of a local Dominican family, who will illuminate rural life for you alongside some irresistible refreshments, from freshly brewed coffee to rich hot chocolate - made from the very finest Dominican cocoa of course! Moving on to the white sand Guzmancito Beach through the communities of Palo Indio and El Toro, you can explore one of the country’s premier watersports destinations. After a buffet-style lunch, it’s on through mountainous landscapes to the Rum Shack, where you can taste superb Dominican rum and watch master artisans as they roll some of the world’s best cigars. Packed with sights and activities, this Dominican Republic gift experience is an absolute must.
