Here’s What You Get

Do you want to go home with a better understanding of the Dominican Republic’s customs and its people? If so, then keep reading because our Country Safari is a mini-crash-course in Dominican culture, packaged in an amazing Half-Day tour.

Time to tap your Five SENSES because we’re taking you deep into the Caribbean countryside of the Dominican Republic’s eastern most mountain range to:

  • Hear about local traditions at a typical Dominican home.
  • Observe the terrain of a tranquil country plantation full of local produce
  • Taste rich Dominican cacao (chocolate), in its organic state, and harvested from the surrounding fertile plantations.
  • Smell the aroma of dark Caribbean coffee, ground from the premium beans found in Punta Cana’s closest mountain range – the Cordillera Oriental.
  • Touch delicately harvested Dominican tobacco leaves, Globally-Renowned for their robust taste and rivaled only by their Cuban counterpart.

This is the best produce Punta Cana has to offer so don’t just touch and smell! You can purchase whatever you wish to take home and relive the experience!

Sound interesting so far? We hope, but there’s actually more!

  • Visit a local elementary school to better understand the country’s public education system
  • Transverse the 500-year-old city of Higuey, the capital city of the eastern La Altagracia province of the Dominican Republic. Higuey, meaning “Land of the Rising Sun” in Arawak was once controlled by a large Taino Indian kingdom who were eventually decimated by Spanish conquistadors
  • Enter the Basilica, a Roman Catholic cathedral housing the 500+ year old painting of the Altagracia Virgen brought by Spanish missionaries. The cathedral’s importance was solidified with Pope John Paul II’s visit in 1992

You didn’t think you could do so much in half a day huh?

Country Adventure Safari is the ORIGINAL Punta Cana safari excursion!

    The safari tour was amazing!!! We did the half a day and learned so much. Our tour guide was awesome and insightful!

    So worth the price!!! It was a half day thing. The ride up into the mountain is in an open aired vehicle. It feels good on your face after a long night. 🙂 The morning is the best time. It is humid and hot but not as hot as it was at noon on our way back. If you get our wonderful guide, try the genuine Dominican chocolate. It is so good!!!! We bought two boxes from a grocery store.

    Worth the price and good overall. Good for history, geography, daily farm life and guide was knowledgable. Initial pick up was somewhat unorganized. Then we drove from Punta Cana to our larger group which finally had an English speaking guide explain what was happening. Rest of the tour was great and Roberto was very interesting. Pretty well organized, well planned for resort pick ups as this was a large group from many different resorts spread out across the region and many different languages

    This tour was wonderful! We had the opportunity to see the REAL DOMINICAN CULTURE. I want to go again to take my son. He’d really learn a lot.

    This excursion was outstanding. And our guide (Emelio Boom-Boom) was superb. Our entire family enjoyed the experience immensely. We found it to be very informative and exciting from beginning to end. I recommended this excursion to several other tourist even before we left Punta Cana.
