Overview

Set out to board a Safari-style Jeep at the crack of dawn. Camera in hand, get ready to canvas unbelievable sceneries of an unequalled wildlife. Be amongst one of the trekkers, joined by an experienced tourist guide, and cast out to explore nature’s bounty. Gallop in the outskirts of a lush, tropical countryside paradise. An exciting, yet challenging feat for the novice and seasoned horseback rider alike. Wander through a sugar cane plantation. Witness the traditional way the indigenous people plowed this crop. Go inside an artisan sugar cane mill, and watch an accurate re-enactment of a colonial-era trapiche (wheel grinder) being pulled by oxen. Back then, it was the only way of extracting the cane juice, a sugary elixir you’ll have a taste of. See this crop transform before your eyes, from cane juice to molasses and vinasse, until becoming the finest Dominican rum. Perhaps the best mature, ripe tobacco has been harvested in this land, befitting only the finest cigar brands in the world which use them in their manufacturing process. This tour would not be complete without learning hands on from master craftsmen, who generation after generation have hand-made the most sought after cigars. Alluring farmlands are the buildings blocks of new found memories. Charming pastel-colored country cottages flawlessly blend in with the lush vegetation. Frolic amid the foliage as you savor the most delectable exotic tropical fruits, freshly-brewed coffee and cocoa in its purest form. There are no better digestifs after eating a succulent typical lunch.

This was a great adventure. Maximo and Carlos were great guides giving lots of local insight on the drive to the zip lines. The zip lines were breathtaking and very safe (double harness, double cable). I highly recommend! #drGo4it
