Here’s What You Get

If WE can get YOU on an awesome Terracross All-Terrain-Vehicle that rips up Punta Cana’s back roads, would you go?

Just say yes, so WE can tell YOU to – Start your engines in style!

There are many Buggy excursions in Punta Cana but waste no more time looking. VIP Macao Buggies is the area original. Do it right with the Buggy experts on the BEST Buggy route in Punta Cana.

Our Purely back-road trail has TWO stops. This is how it all breaks down …

From our remote ranch in Macao, get comfy in your VIP Buggy. These bad boys are a step above the rest and can handle the Dominican off-road with ease and speed. We go roaring through remote farmland, passing palm trees and tobacco plantations with the Oriental Mountain Range deep in the background.

These narrow, secluded country roads shelter deep pools of Mud that we’ll go bursting through again and again. At first, you may try and avoid the dirt, but soon you’ll give into the filth. We all do…

We may call them VIP Buggies but they ain’t for the prissy!

Stop 1: Stop-over at a typical country plantation for a short intro on some of the Dominican Republic’s most recognizable natural produce: cacao, coffee, tobacco and Mamajuana (a local aphrodisiac elixir) Yes, you can drink and drive here – we won’t tell…

Back into the jagged off-road and then …

Stop 2: Descend into a cool, dark cave with a calm subterranean lagoon perfect for swimming. Take a dip and wash off some of that muck!

CLIFF NOTES: Burst through distant farmland, Visit a quaint country ranch, and Bathe in the sub-terrestrial waters of a natural cave.

If you’re on the fence, don’t be! Buggies are Uber popular in Punta Cana so book NOW to get one.

    Great fun!!! Lots of mud and dirt. Great informational session where you can buy coffee, chocolate, coconut oil, raw cinnamon, and green tea to name a few. Be readynfor a fun filled adventure!!

  2. Sarah (verified purchase)

    Simply amazing!! I have to admit I was nervous at first, but the guides were there every step of the way. I was so happy I got to experience DR outside of our resort. I would recommend this time and time again!

  3. Emilia (verified purchase)

    We started out by being picked up at our hotel in an open safari truck and the driver was right on time and the weather was perfect! We experienced the “wild and crazy” driving of the Dominican population, they had us gasping at the narrow misses. When we arrived at the Macao Buggies site, we were given instructions on what to do and what not to do and asked if we wanted to upgrade to the bigger buggies and we were able to say no without being pressured. We recommend the smaller size. More mud, more fun! The tour guides took us through mud holes, pot holes and bumps. It is about the mud after all. They took us to the coffee/cocoa and cigar farm and were given a demonstration and samples of the local product…Mamajuana – Best rum anywhere! The vendors are there, but again we were able to say no without being pressured, we did purchase the rum and coffee beans, but remember this is their livelihood and depend on tourists, so they can be a little pushy. We ended the trip at the Macao beach where we got to dip in the ocean and clean some of the mud off. The trip was a ton of fun, we tried to splash as much mud as we could and as many other buggies as we could! We would recommend this to anyone, young or old. Just make it fun!

    It began with the cool designed open air truck, setting the tone for what’s to come. The excursion was well planned out like the precision of a Navy Seal Mission and we were the heroes. We experienced the real country side, culture, and beautiful beaches. The moments were also captured on video and film. We simply had a Blast!

  5. Colt (verified purchase)

    Great day! Lots of fun during the buggie excursion. Seemed well maintained although mirrors missing (LOL who needs mirrors!!) Photo staff take pictures along the way.. no high sales pitch to purchase if you don’t want to buy any. Do take a bandana to cover your face.. it can be quite dusty/muddy.

  6. Cesar (verified purchase)

  7. April (verified purchase)

    This was the BEST excursion we did while in DR. ChuChu (our guide)was amazing! We paid for the private tour which was well worth it. The cave and beach were beautiful. We never felt rushed or pressured to buy anything. ChuChu definitely goes above and beyond for his customers! Thank you for a wonderful experience. My family had a blast!

  8. Parker (verified purchase)

    Worth the Visit! The beach, the waves, the sand, the view, they all make it worth going there and seeing this place. We went during the Boogie tour and after all the mud we had been through, we couldn’t wait for a bath there.

  9. Jackson (verified purchase)

    Everything went very smoothly! I would highly recommend this trip to all my friends and have already been telling them that they need to go to DR. Word of mouth is powerful marketing and with the high level of service I was rendered I will spread it to all. Thank you again! P.S. Our tour guide was awesome. Wonderful man and very knowledge give him our thanks again!!

  10. Ivy (verified purchase)

    The buggies were a lot of fun. We got to drive through farms and muddy pathways. We made 3 stops: 1) the cocoa farm where we got to sample the cocoa and coffee- you could purchase them if you liked, 2) the cave, where you could jump into a 25 ft deep pool of water, and 3) the beach which was gorgeous. Definitely would do it again, just wish we had more time at the beach

    Skeptical at First. Wonderful Experience Yes! We were skeptical at first because we had been doing everything through the hotel but after our excursion we were sorry we hadn’t used you guys for everything! The Buggies trip was VERY reasonably priced. The transportation was to and from the hotel was clean and prompt. The excursion itself was AMAZING! By far the best thing we did on our vacation! We got some beautiful pictures of the countryside as well as the natural waterfall. And the buggies were just so fun to ride in and drive! We would DEFINITELY recommend using Punta Cana Tours and we will be using you guys for our next vacation! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!

    We had an absolute blast at the Macao Buggies excursion. We would definitely recommend to a friend. We actually told a lot of the people we met at our resort to do that excursion! There’s a couple things that I think would improve the excursion: – Provide some sort of food. We got picked up at 7 in the morning and didn’t get back until afternoon. We would have even paid for food! – When it’s not muddy or raining, make the trails not so dry. We went on a sunny, dry, day, and were looking forward to getting muddy!!!! Other than that, we had such a great time. The staff were wonderful 🙂 -Jenn

    We were pleasantly surprised with the service provided by Punta Cana Tours. We book several excursions and were impressed with the prompt pick up each time at our hotel. There were NO hassles or worries. We appreciated being picked up in a small private vehicle,adding personal touches that are not provided with other tour companies. Punta cana Tour company is the BEST tour company I have booked through. I will definitely use them again without hesitation. Thank you to Gary and Thomas for making our trip to Punta Cana an outstanding and fun trip

    Our family of 4 (2 daughters 19 & 21) shared two VIP buggies through Punta Cana Tours. They offered 3 levels of riding (4×4 ATVs, beach buggies and gator styled 4×4) all leaving together and taking the same route and experience. The difference is the amount of muddy you want to get. The beach buggies are by far the muddiest and I do mean muddy. They will take pictures along the way and hound you to buy but not overly so. It was worth the money and my youngest daughters favorite part of our week long trip. You are actually driving or at a stop for 2 hours beginning to end the rest of the time is transpiration and set up.

In Punta Cana you must be 18 years old to drive a buggy. There is no age restriction on being a passenger.

Yes you can! Since you'll be getting dirty and wet on most Punta Cana buggy tours, flip flops aren't a bad idea. With that said, a bit sturdier sandal or water shoe would probably be a better choice due to some some walking involved.

All buggies used in excursions in Punta Cana are automatic. They are easy to operate and fun to drive!

Pregnant women are not permitted on buggy excursions. The route is incredibly bumpy, making the tour very high risk for pregnant women.

No, a driver's license is not required but you need to be 18 years or older to drive a buggy in Punta Cana.
