My husband and I booked the True Dominican countryside horseback ride with Cana Tequila in hopes of a more “authentic” experience of the Dominican Republic outside of our resort. We got exactly this and it exceeded every expectation.

First of all, Arturo communicated promptly and kindly to every inquiry I had. Booking and making the pick up arrangements was no problem at all. He picked us up promptly and made us feel so welcome and comfortable. We had such a great time chatting with Arturo on the car ride over, he’s very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor!

The ride itself was BEAUTIFUL. I do not have the words to describe it really. We had a view of the mountains the whole time and it was so nice to be away from the beaches for a little while. We stopped for a bit in the mountains at a spot with a beautiful vista while the horses took a rest.

After the ride, we had an incredible lunch made by a local lady. Dominican beans and rice, meatballs, fried plantains- wow. It was DELICIOUS.

The whole experience felt so authentic and genuine, everyone we met was so wonderful. The price of the whole experience is 100% worth it and honestly, I probably would have paid more. I cannot recommend this enough!!

This was the best excursion we went on. Pricing was amazing. We booked through Airbnb. It included pick up from your hotel by Arturo who speaks English if you are worried about a language barrier. He is super charismatic and patient. We had a group of 4 people. One child (10) no experience and one person 68 no experience, and one over 250lbs. He was able to accommodate all of us. The horses were amazing they listened so well and worked so hard. The trail was so fun and dynamic. We went over streams, saw some fruit, saw cows, and rode to the top all without an issue. It was So fun. I would recommend this to everyone.
They had two riders with us, Arturo and Jordano. The were so attentive alway checking on us and checking the stirrups. And Jordano even filmed us with our camera and his and sent us all the pictures at no extra cost.
Once we got comfortable they even let us go faster with the horse which was even more exciting. Really a great experience. If you are going to Punta Cana book this tour.
I read a lot of review about this excursion and. I think even with high expectations, it was even better than I expected.
On top of this they also offered a lunch with the excursion. It so delicious and authentic.

Great experience all around, and it was for people of all ages.

I had a luxury tour throughout the whole ranch, the horses were picture-perfect, clean, well cared for stunning. Paso Higueano is very large with an excellent demeanor, smart and the riding gate was very smooth. My day was perfect, I rode through the forest, plantation of pineapples, sugar cane, and rounded up cattle. Wow-what an experience, I highly recommend this tour. It was so much fun.

We were a group of 7 people, most of us didn’t have a lot of experience doing horse back riding. Nevertheless, we all felt very safe and were blown away by the beauty of the countryside. The boss welcomed us personally and accompanied the group. The horses were all very gentle and in a very good state. It’s worth the ride, about an hour from Punta Cana. We would definitely do this again. Thank you very much

We booked this activity for today to be picked up from 8. We had one email to say thank you for booking someone will be in touch again within 24 hours. No one did so I followed up with another email to which I had no response and no one turned up this morning. Was really looking forward to this so quite disappointed. Just realised there are no recent reviews, perhaps they are no longer in business.

Dear Gabrielle, we do apologize for not being there, the person responsible for coordinating pick ups had a misshap. We would like to offer the excursion free of charge if you're still in the area. Please contact us at info@canatequila.com Arturo

Awesome experience! I highly recommend this tour. It is something refreshingly different from the experiences at the Punta Cana all-inclusive resorts. This tour takes you into the countryside to ride horses on a beautiful ranch. I didn't have any riding experience but the guides pair you with appropriate horses for your skill level and teach you everything you need to know. Riding the horses was exhilarating. The scenery is spectacular as you can see mountains, tropical forests, and the sea.

I got to try cacao beans that grow on the ranch. After riding, they serve a typical Dominican lunch which was a welcome change from resort buffet food. You eat at a house in a small town, so you see what a small town in the area is like. Arturo the guide/owner told us a lot about the local area.

One thing to know before you go: if your hotel is not on the pickup list, contact the operator by WhatsApp and ask about pick up time and location. We needed to go out the main gate of our resort, which was fine but the resorts are so massive it takes some planning as to finding the shuttle that takes you close to the front.

This was one of the best excursions I’ve ever done. Not your typical cookie cutter tour group outing! The ride was great, and the owner Arturo was too. I learned so much about Dominican culture and saw a beautiful part of the country I never would’ve otherwise seen. If you’re looking for an authentic, immersive adventure, this it. Thanks so much for everything, Arturo, I’ll definitely be back.

If you do one excursion while visiting the Dominican Republic - DO THIS RIDE!

The views on the ride are like no other. We got to see the mountains, trails, and jungle of the real Dominican Republic. We saw wild horses, cows, goats, sheep, and all kinds of amazing animals on our ride. This is not a boring "walk in a single-file line" trail ride - we got to gallop through the trails and explore in the jungle! I am an experience rider and I was blown away by how much we got to do.

This was my first trip to the DR with my BF, and we were worried about safety as tourists. Arturo answered all of our questions by phone before we even left the states, and he was incredibly responsive while we were there. His staff and everyone we met along the way were the most genuinely kind people. I forgot an SD card on the way there - he took us to the mall so I could get one! He even took the time to take us on a mini driving tour after the ride so we could see the real DR. They are also very safe with covid!

As an animal lover, Arturo's horses are very well cared for. His horses are well fed, groomed, and have their hooves trimmed. The tour group consisted of just my BF, Arturo, and his two expert guides. You can't get more intimate than that - definitely not a tour mill! My boyfriend is a beginner rider and Arturo spent plenty of time getting him comfortable so we could all have fun. By the end he had taught my boyfriend how to canter on the horse. I cannot recommend this tour enough. Thank you Arturo, Danny, and all the staff! We can't wait to come back next year! This was the highlight of our week in the DR.

Hi Nicole!! Thank you for your review, it was a real pleasure meeting you and Guy, you're not only a very good rider but also an excellent human being, it was a pleasure to see Guy go by us at a full gallop!! Also, thank you for helping us set up our new beach ride, your input and knowledge of horses were of great help. We'll have a spot ready for you whenever you decide to come back. Lots of blessings!!

Super super beautiful! I wish everyone on this Earth to have this experience in their life! Amazing! Thanks to having us there. The horses are very humble. The view is spectacular and the air is just so fresh and clean. If you like horses and you are in Punta Cana , definitely don’t miss out this experience! ❤️

My husband and I rode with Arturo and Danny 2 years ago on our first visit to the DR. This year it was a MUST that we set aside a day to ride again, it is the highlight of our vacation! No set trails, you're going to ride in open fields, hillsides & pastures. No tired or lazy horses, they are gentle and responsive. We learned so much about the island, its fruits, The guides are the best
