ShoreTrips says...

Outside of the pristine walls of the beautiful Punta Cana resorts lie the wild wilderness that once covered the area. Just a bit out of town you'll find stunning beaches, forested mountains, lush valleys and family farms all awaiting your discovery.

This incredibly fun day starts with a safety briefing and ATV or buggy operating instructions from your guide along with helmets for all. One person in your group can drive the entire way or switch part way through to share the driving fun. In a few minutes, with a little bit of practice, you'll be ready to take the controls. Let the adventure begin!

As you drive along your knowledgeable guide will tell you about this beautiful island, its people and its flora and fauna. En route to the first destination you will see a home typical of the area to provide an understanding of the life of the local people. Continuing on across narrow paths and through small villages, you'll arrive at Hoyo Azul, a beautiful, brilliant blue cenote located at the base of a cliff. The clear turquoise waters are inviting, so go on, jump in for a swim. Ahhh, refreshing!

Back on your vehicle, you'll visit the home of a welcoming local resident who will share samples of Dominican agricultural products such as coffee and cocoa.

The exploration of the island's landscape continues as you anticipate your final destination, Macao Beach. This gorgeous beach is the perfect place for a swim, maybe a stroll on the white sand or a relaxing break under swaying palms.

All this fun and a donation to help the local school. How great is that?
