    If in bayahibe you have to do this!
    This is a four hour trip with around 2-3 hours on quads and buggies which takes you through some really poor parts of the island via bumpy, dusty tracks. It's great fun and eye opening at the same time. There are stops at local sugar cane plantations and a scenic river. If you book single or double riders it will depend on numbers attending but there is plenty of opportunity to swap over on both vehicles so each person gets a good blast. Take your own glasses/goggles and a bandana to protect from the dust. Open toe footwear is fine. Drinks are also provided. Take a few $1 bills or some small packets of sweets as there are plenty of local children that wave and give you flowers as you pass by. A small gift to them which means nothing to you will probably mean the world to them!!

    We did this through our tour operator Tui and though good price £60 each and we drove quads and buggies for a full morning swaping half way through to drive the other vehicle. I would recommend buying the goggles and bandanas they offer at reasonable prices as it can be dusty. There is no.hard sell but if you don't have your own do purchase well worth it sunglasses not enough. We had a great drive to a river and some off roading through muddier bits. Wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Drinks and refreshments of fruit pieces provided toilet facilities basic but no worse than in other places off the beaten track where I have travelled. Again no.hard sales. Lots of photos taken you can purchase a memory stick for 30 dollars if you want. Be aware seats can get EXTREMELY hot I got slightly burnt on my leg sitting on seat I only noticed later. So check before sitting down. Fantastic experience with interesting and friendly guys. Would recommend

    Fun! You can reserve directly with them and $ave!
    Honest. The tour guide found that we had been overcharged and took it personally to refund my family in cash. The tour was more than fun, it rained the night before and the mud was in point to have a great time. Remember to bring safety googles/eyes protection (your sun glasses will not cut it for the mud, debris and road dust), bandana (nose and hair) and a change of clothes. We were offered to try the quads and the buggies, I suggest to accept. Once back, there are some low pressure water spouts that you can use to patiently remove some of the mud. Talking about mud, it was awesome but remember, mud and white clothes, don't mix... Have fun, we did.

You will definitely get your money's worth! Absolutely worth the price, as we covered a lot of ground and were out exploring for at least 2-3 hours. Be prepared, you will get filthy as there is so much dust. Bring a mask or a bandanna or make sure to bring some cash to buy one there, as there is a ton of dust. Will also have opportunities to shop a bit and you will want to tip and also as the guides are fantastic! If you speak English make sure to ask for Niko, he was the best.

I would recommend renting a Quad ATV for each person as they appeared to be the most comfortable. Also be prepared, you will be driving through remote villages which was a little hair Rasing but again the guides were there to take good care of us.

An absolutely joke, if you want to drive faster than 30km/h or have a minimum of fun you get stress by the guide, after three times i drive a bit faster a had a discussion with the guide and i told him we also paid much money not to stay in a 5meter row without fun, he puts of my quad and send me back to hotel. Lost money, no fun, nothing with this guidance!! Don’t waste your money to this criminals. After he put off my quad I told him to give me my money back and he says “f*ck you man” ..

SO FUN! You will have a wonderful time flying through the DR on Dune Buggys that seat two people. It is dirty and you may want to bring clothes you don’t plan to return home with at the end of your vacation. You will want sunglasses and a bandana to cover your eyes and face (lots of dust/mud). Our teenagers/twenty something kids had a blast!

The website suggests bringing towels…I would not! Also, don’t bring a large bag or anything you want to stay clean…travel light to this excursion! It is a half day trip which is nice. We left our resort at 8:30 were back at our resort by 12:30.

We stayed at the Coral Canoa which is in La Romana. You shouldn't miss this tour especially staying here because it is really close...
This was by far our favorite excursion and we did a few... This one is great because it gives you a change of scenery from the beach.
We started out driving thru the countryside, villages, sugarcane fields, a pit stop for some fresh fruit and great art, and down to the Chavon river.
This excursion is really exciting and adventerous.
We were the only English speakers on our tour (french and italian) and they have guides that will speak in virtually any language... We were lucky enough to have our own private English speaking guide who was great. He told so much information about the country the sugar cane business and his own story. Don't forget to tip the guides!
We drove thru a village to see how some of the most poor people live. It really makes you appreciate the luxuries that we take for granted. BE CAREFUL because the children in the village will dart out in front of you to ask for candy or money. The people in front of us threw some candy to the kids and they jumped out the get it and almost got plowed over by the other ATV's.
The stop at the river was great! Some people went swimming and it was a nice break.
BEWARE: YOU WILL GET DIRTY!!!!! The terrain is rough and if its been raining, there are puddles everywhere... Its all part of the fun but my tennis shoes were ruined even after trying to wash them at the hotel after the tour.... Bring some beat up tennis shoes that you are willing to toss after the tour.
THIS ACTIVITY IS NOT TO MISS IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE REAL DOMINICAN REPUBLIC!
take a look at my pics to see our CRAZY WHEELS excursion.

The ATV's and Dune Buggies are very dangerous. The brakes don't work. They would never pass any type of inspection to be legal and safe to ride by U.S. standards. The staff are not nice and like to make fun of people. They encourage the other clientele to splash and spray each other with mud and manure. You will ruin your clothes and your spirit. Don't waste your money.

I went to this kinda knowing what to expect based on us doing similar activities in Las Vegas and Kauai. Boy was I wrong! Guys in charge there get annoyed if you don't get what they explain the first time like turning on the atv. You have to but your own bandana and luckily I was wearing sunglasses but still other places less expensive than that for their tours give that to you. They're just trying to get out of you as much as you can. One of them didn't know I spoke Spanish and told one of the friends that worked there he'd get me by the end of the trip... Get me how?? I have no idea but it made me uneasy the whole way. When I confronted him in Spanish he pretended like he didn't know what I was talking about. They take you to a place to get fruit but it's a place where you're pressured into buying stuff they sell there like jewelry and art paintings. Then they take you trough a very poor town where kids run along you (very freaking dangerous as the kids don't care what they do to make you stop and ask you for whatever you can give, even your cap!) They specifically go trough there and stop ahead of the town to give you a glimpse of the real local life. Kids eventually catch up to you and keep asking you for stuff. Anyway, they asked us not to go through puddles and to not go fast through the mud but... That's the reason we booked the thing to begin with! So we went hard on every puddle and wherever we saw mud! We managed to make the best out of it as we had already paid and well that's the best you can do really, what other choice do you have? Leave? That's what made it fun for us but we would not do it again as they're not really explaining the culture to us they were exploiting it. To top it off the bus driver told us we'd have to pay extra for the cleaning of the bus because we were extremely muddy!! Of course we didn't pay extra!! If you do it hopefully your experience is not as bad as ours but I bet you'll be displeased either way as I don't see how anyone could approve the very bad costumer service they give.
