A delightful way for you and your group to make the most of your time in the Dominican Republic.

Your tour will begin with an introduction to the bustling city of Puerto Plata. Drawn to its natural port, Christopher Colombus discovered Puerto Plata in the late 1490s. You'll hear many interesting details as you drive through the historic Victorian district and along the Malecon.

Soon, you'll arrive at the starting point for your safari tour, a ranch located in a small Dominican village. You'll receive an orientation before boarding your open-air, safari-style vehicle for a rollicking ride on Puerto Plata's country back roads. As you travel along, your guide will provide a glimpse into everyday Dominican life at stops along the way. You'll take a break for a cooling dip at a natural, spring-fed, river "pool" before returning to the ranch, where you'll be offered welcome and delicious tastings of coffee and rum.

Now it's on to Golden Beach...known for its golden sand, gentle breezes, brilliant shades of turquoise water! Upon your arrival, you will be greeted with a complimentary "specialty of the house" beverage before leading you to the beach area where there are ample loungers and sea beds for your use. You'll have about an hour to do whatever you desire...swimming, frolicking in the surf, sunbathing, strolling along the beach; getting a quick bite to eat or refreshing beverage from the beach restaurant and bar or maybe even taking a nap.
