The tour will begin with pickup from your Punta Cana hotel. From there you will hop on an open-air safari and travel towards Higuey, the largest city in the Dominican Republic's eastern region, the excursion makes a stop at a local school where the safari team sponsors a community project that benefits several villages with basic education.
Passing through the vast sugar cane fields so common to the east of the Dominican Republic, the tour then visits one of the country's most famous churches - the Basilica de Higuey, dedicated to Our Lady of the Altagracia, the patron saint of the Dominican Republic.
Leaving the city, the safari will take a turn towards the Cordillera Oriental Mountain Range, averaging some 900 feet above sea level, before heading deep into the Dominican country side. Our safari truck then passes by two rural ranches where you'll learn about and taste several genuine Dominican products: cocoa, coffee, tobacco, and mamajuana (widely considered a natural aphrodisiac).
To finish the day, you will get to visit one of the most beautiful beaches in the area, Macao Beach, for a dip in the ocean before returning to your Punta Cana hotel.
