What People Are Saying About Punta Cana

Fantastic tour that is once in a lifetime

Mimi and Adolfo were excellent guides throughout the rugged terrain leading up to monkey land. Once we arrived, the monkeys were ready to entertain us. I wish we had more time to spend with them but this excursion is truly unique and a must do in the DR!!!

Punta Cana: Monkey Land Half-Day Safari Reviewed by Nicholas, 04/04/2016

Amazing little tour through the forest with a breathtaking swim!

The guide was amazing; he gave us some history about Punta Cana and showed us animals and vegetation native to the area. Everyone was polite and welcoming and swimming in the lagoons was really cool! Will definitely recommend to our friends

From beginning to end, I enjoyed every part!

This was a wonderful excursion, I enjoyed it very much! Everything was so entertaining & our guides were great! I took a plane, a bus, a horse, & a boat all in 1 day! Bring a camera/video camera, comfortable shoes (walking, & horse ride), change of cloths (there's swimming involved), & money (things you may want to buy & people to tip). There wasn't a "waterfall" like it shows in the picture, but there was a nice lagoon. The weather began to change towards the end of the trip, became very windy.

I have done this excursion twice and I would do it again.

I can't recommend this experience enough. It's fun, it's informative, it opens your eyes. Take a day and go do it.
