Safari

 

We’ll take you out deep into to the tropical countryside and into the REAL Dominican Republic for a full morning of exploration and adventure.

We begin this day by taking the route to Higüey where, in addition to touring its streets, we will visit the largest and most important church in the country, the Basilica of La Altagracia. Camera in hand, get ready to capture unbelievable panoramas and typical Dominican villages. Along the road you will see schools and famous “colmado”. Cruise across a sugar cane plantation. Go inside an artisan sugar cane mill, and watch an accurate re-enactment of a colonial-era “trapiche” (wheel grinder) being pulled by oxen. This tour would not be complete without seeing how the master rolls the best Dominican cigars.

To complete this journey, visit a local family on their home. With smiles they invite you to their farm and their coffee plantation. Also, take a moment to taste the real cacao and many exotics fruits. This cultural immersion is definitely the highlight of your vacation. During the day, enjoy one of the best Dominican foods. The comments are unanimous; we serve the best lunch in an excursion! To finalize the day take a dip in the beautiful Macao beach to catch a wave on a boogie board or simply relax while sipping a Cuba Libre to the soothing sound of nature.
