The Dominican Republic is the favoured spot for luxury Caribbean holiday with wonderful coconut lined long white sandy beaches, myriads of luxury all inclusive hotels, world class golf courses. Punta Cana, the most popular destination has all of this and so much more.
However, there is more to the Dominican Republic that purely all-inclusive luxury. Though there is possibly no more beautiful a destination that to soak up the sun, swim in cobalt blue clear seas, consider the Dominican Republic for all the rest it has to offer, it has beach, jungle and the old towns and villages. So, before you book your all-inclusive trip, be sure to take a look at some activities you could do. After all, it is a long way to go to not take advantage of some of the amazing adventures you could join in.
Punta Cana is the primary destination and it is well placed to access other areas of the Dominican. With proximity to some beautiful jungle areas, why not take a day to see on horseback. Trek through the mountains and forests, exploring waterfalls and enjoying the natural beauty of the trail through the landscapes of Bávaro. There are horses for novice or experienced rider, a great way to explore and experience some fantastic views of the island.
If you are really looking to experience the heart of the Dominican then take a safari and explore the cacao and coffee plantations. Explore the history of the Dominican, learn hoe the coffee is dried, indulge in the aroma and take the chance to taste the freshest coffee you will ever try. On the safari, you will learn about the fruits such as the mango that provide lush and vibrant colour on the island, pick the mango and sample a taste of the Caribbean. Experience the vibrancy and colour of the villages and experience Caribbean life.
For the thrill seekers amongst you, take a zipline tour over the landscapes of Punta Cana. Take in breath-taking views of the landscape, experience the exotic plants, lush vegetation, encounter wildlife on a 2km zipline adventure. Enjoy the views at 160km up and speeds of 70km per hour, a fast, existing an adrenaline fuelled adventure over Punta Cana.
Want to explore more of Punta Cana but you do not want to explore the height or at the speed of the other experiences, you can go take Buggy ride into the jungle. Experience the tours of Bavaro, at full speed as you zip through a coffee plantation, take trips across the rivers as you manoeuvre the buggy across the rugged terrain, this is still a thrill but possibly more suited to all the family and those who like to be a little more closer to the ground.
Whatever the reason for your visit to the Dominican Republic one of these Punta Cana excursions has to be on the list. Take advantage of the amazing opportunities to indulge in fun in the sun, but add in adventure, thrill and wildlife and you truly make amazing holiday of a lifetime memories.
