Full description
Ride in an impressive truck from your hotel to the Punta Cana area. During the drive, your guide will educate you about the city and the country. Visit a typical Dominican house, learn about when it was built and spend some time with the welcoming family that lives there. Visit the coffee and cacao plantations. This ecological stop will begin with a short walk through the plantations, where the vegetation is so abundant that the sunlight can barely penetrate. The guides will teach you about the history, culture and the fabrication process of numerous products. Taste organic products like chocolate, coffee and vanilla.  Visit a butterfly farm and find out about the evolution of different species. Finally, discover Macao Beach and enjoy the spectacular view. Learn how to boogie board or just take a refreshing splash in the turquoise waters.

All in all a successful, instructive and entertaining trip. You learn about the country and its people, cocoa and coffee cultivation and cigar production, you can try things out and lend a hand yourself. There were only two of us and we decided against the beach and would rather have more time at the other stops. Carlos spoke good German and explained a lot while driving. The price is on the higher end, but it was worth it. Pickup about 30 minutes late, so don't be there before the pick-up time and then "maniana maniana"

The tour itself was really interesting, but we had to wait over an hour to pick it up (you already thought the tour was no longer taking place). You could have a short look at a school (if you want you can bring something for the children there, such as pens, pads, glue, etc.), but you couldn't drive a boogie board as described or look at the butterfly farm , Nevertheless it was all in all a successful trip.
