Full description
Enjoy a two day package tour ensuring adrenaline, relaxation, beautiful scenery, and more. For your first tour you will be taken to some off-shore islands in the Dominican Republic. You'll begin by hitting the Caribbean Sea on a speedboat, before slowly cruising your way back to the mainland on a spacious catamaran. There will also be music and an open bar, allowing you to best enjoy your time away from Punta Cana. On the next day, prepare to start your engines at a secluded ranch in Macao. You can fire up your buggy, which will be equipped with a GoPro camera to record your adventure, before tearing through remote farmland. These narrow, secluded country roads offer a safe haven for deep pools of mud. You may try and avoid the filth at first, but you'll eventually give in to the muck. You'll make 3 stops throughout your buggy tour. You'll begin by visiting a sleepy country plantation for an introduction to some of the Dominican Republic's most sought after produce, before descending into a picturesque cenote replete with a subterranean river which is perfect for swimming. You'll finally take in Macao Beach, which is one of the best beaches in the coastal stretch of Punta Cana. It is an idealistic Caribbean shore with amber sands, rows of coconut palms, and azure waters. At the conclusion of your experience you will, be returned to your accommodation in Punta Cana with a head full of brilliant memories.

Saona Island trip definitely is great fun especially the quick stop at the Natural swimming pool. The buggy tour/trip didn't had a great start due to the lack of communication of our pick up time. I had to constantly chase this up. We were eventually told that our pick up time was at 8:20am but when we got to the reception, the driver was very early as some guests from the other hotels cancelled and went to our hotel. Because we weren't at the reception, the driver left without asking the reception to call us in our room. A new pick up time was allocated at 10:20 and the driver was almost one hour late. Apart from the bad start, the tour was certainly enjoyable.

The tours were both a lot of fun and are definitely recommended. The only drawback with the Saona tour is the long transport. The transport took us 2-3 hours each time. Unfortunately, the group was extremely drunk and noisy on the return trip. Here it depends a lot on the group how the transport and the tour itself is.
