This excursion was a lot of fun and I would highly recommend this activity. You can also do a search on trip advisor for "Amber Cove & Taino Bay Shore Excursion" and read the reviews. I plan to do this again in a few months as I have another Carnival Cruise booked on the Mardi Gras that will stop here. I did have two issues with the first Dune Buggy I was placed in. The first issue was that the steering was all over the place. I told one of the guys on the ATV at one of the stops and he said it was just very loose. I told him it was more than just loose and that I could hear a lot of banging in the steering wheel column. It was a group of 8 ATVs and 3 dune buggies, and one buggy was used by the guide. As we were leaving the premise there was a huge group of about 15 dune buggies and 15 ATVs on their way back. And they were giving us all thumbs up as they passed us to let us know this excursion was fun and worth it. I did notice also when we left that there weren't any dune buggies left at the hub. I think this is why we possibly got a dune buggy that obviously needed some repairs to the steering hardware. Another issue was the lack of power the dune buggy had (or at least I initially thought - more on that later). The lack of power had the guide would leave me in the dust literally and pretty easily. This was getting frustrating along with the fact the steering was horrible. I decided to press down hard on the gas pedal because I could see that it had more room to travel down to the floor. When I did that the pedal passed a hard spot and it went all the way to the floor. Things immediately got interesting because I sped up significantly and the gas pedal stayed on the floor.😂 I had to get on the brakes hard to slow down. However, that is all she would do is slow down and not come to a full stop. Well, I had fun doing that for a few minutes until the guide wanted us to stop and I could not.😄 I had to turn the dune buggy off and then tell him what was going on. The guide went to the back of my dune buggy to disengage the throttle and he swapped buggies with us. He said I needed to press the pedal down further, but that was impossible as it was all the way down. My proof was presented to him when he had the same issue a few minutes into driving and he had to turn off the dune buggy and go to the back of it and disengage the throttle again. After that, he no longer would go as fast. Which was a little disappointing, so I had slow down and fall back on purpose and then get on the hard acceleration going in order to have some fun.
