Slow pace/ cave was fun
April_R
, Sep 2021
The bus pick and ride were nice. It’s was in an open Safari truck. When you get there they go over all the rules and where you are going. Unfortunately we did not go to the beach since it was crowded this day. You then can purchase bandannas to cover your face. I would advise you to bring your own bandannas or gators. There is a little shop to purchase some souvenirs, get a locker even for your stuff if you don’t want to take it with you. You then hang out for your group color to be called. Then you get in you buggy and follow the guide. What we thought was we where going on some nice trails and maybe some town streets. This is not the case. You go up a town street, then dirt road and then turn around. There was some mud on the 1st dirt road (which water is fed to keep muddy). Then back on the street and an other dirt road you go up and then down on. Then you take the town street again to the park. Now here is something that made us and our group of friends uncomfortable about. As your going up and down this street and dirt roads. There are children and mothers out begging for money. It is extremely sad and upset for once you gave money to one then you have a group swarming your buggy (our friend learned this fast), even had one begging for her necklace. We also felt that the guide stopped/went slow in areas to give the people begging a chance to be a little bit pushy. Once you get into the park you get out of the buggy and walk to the cave for the water fall. Now this is gorgeous in a lot of fun to take pics in. Could have spent more time there. After that you watch a little show about the native culture. This was enlightening and funny. Then we went to where they sell the coca coffee/tea and everything. The speaker spoke in in Spanish and English about everything which was very nice. Then you have a few mins to sample and purchase items. Which I suggest you do , especially the tea for you can’t find it in any other shop it seems. For I tried and kick myself for not getting the tea. After that you walk some more and get a free drink and can dance a little. Then back into the buggy. You go on a short trail in the park and go through to mud pits. That part was the most fun. Then back to the company base , to rinse off and get on your Safari truck to go to your hotel. Two things I think that should change for this tour. 1) maybe find out who has done buggy or Drive side-by-side and put them in a different group then the ones that don’t. For it was too slow for our group and my husband even slowed down some to put space between us and others so our group could go a little faster. 2) not do trails with all the begging for it makes people uncomfortable , especially when you can give everyone something. What we took from this is if you do side by side driving or buggy. This may not be fore you for it’s very slow pace excursion.

Confusion on pickup. The actual dune buggie ride was unimpressive. Not a course , through village streets. Kids running beside the buggies for money and gifts.

Fun for the entire family!

We had the best time. We didn’t drive on the beach as it was crowded but had a blast off road in the mud. (Wear a bandana to cover your face) The Cacao and coffee plantainton was fun. The natural pool in the cave was beautiful. (Wear water shoes as the surface in rough and uneven) We enjoyed sampling all the coffee and chocolate. Highly recommend the Cocao powder to make at home. There are outside showers when you get back to rinse of the mud. Cute little gift shop. Lockers for personal items before you hop on a buggie. They provide water and there is also food to purchase. (Under $5 for a burger, soda and fries)

It showed us the beautiful countryside and showed us all aspects of the Dominican. Take lots of $1 bills with you to give the little children you see. I would definitely recommend this tour!

Not a dune buggy tour but a short ride to a tourist trap
Dave
, Jul 2021
Very disappointed with this tour. The tour consists of a slow two mile ride on a paved road to a tourist trap. Here you wade in a “natural” cave pool (pool filter is under the stairs), watch a native dance, hear a sales pitch to buy their coffee, and get server soda while dance music is playing. After two hours of this you are taken down and back three short dirt roads. As a side note, I signed up for a dune buggy but got an ATV side-by-side instead. This was only a minor inconvenience compared to how terrible the experience. Know what you are getting. The dune buggy/atv advertised is a very minor part of the tour. I wasted half a day of my vacation on this.

Do. Not. Book. This.
Tabitha-S
, Jun 2021
DO NOT BOOK THIS! The ride to and from was long, we spent half of the day waiting on things to happen (where they pushed you to buy things; got 30+ buggies ready to ride; waiting on people to get on the bus; waiting to look at pictures), and overall it was disorganized. The whole time people were wondering where they should be going, when we would leave various stops, etc. Macao beach stop is 10 min walk each way and 15 min on the beach. Why go to a beach for 15 minutes? There we got absolutely hounded with sales people and did not enjoy our time. The “authentic” experience with natives was soooo fake. PVC pipe was everywhere painted like bamboo. The cave was artificial and like 3 feet deep. As a whole, we would’ve had a much more enjoyable experience doing anything but this tour. I’ve done a tour like this in the DR that was much better (more time at a beach, smaller groups, less pressure to buy things the whole time). Pick another company!
