FULL DAY SAFARI

20151120_093237Dear readers, here you have another idea on how to spend a great day off resort full of fun and adventure! Experience an authentic safari and discover the best things Dominican Republic has to offer. The pick up starts between 7 and 8 am depending on your hotel on board of impressive open-air trucks. During the ride professional guides will educate you about the city and the country in general. On the way to the plantation you will stop at an elementary school and learn a bit about the Dominican school system. (You don’t tour the school inside in this excursion, but you can arrange to give a donation directly to the director of the school, if you prepare ahead of time and bring the stuff with you).

20151120_105604Once arrived at the local plantation you will visit first a typical Dominican house, learn about when it was built and spend some time with the welcoming and modest family that lives there. The guide will explain how they live and how they prepare their meals in a firewood stove. Next you will start the plantation tour. It presents 500 square meters of different plants, especially coffee and cocoa, besides tobacco, pineapple, sugarcane , papaya, plantains, corn and others. Stop at several places and the guides will teach you about history, culture and the fabrication process of numerous products. The plantation is simply great with so many different samples to try!

20151120_143610The guide will continue with the demonstrations and will show you an activity that only this safari offers: a Butterfly Garden, where you will see some of the endemic D.R. butterflies (Papilo Cebra and Lemon). Their reproduction , larvae and worms on display. You will end the plantation tour at a grocery store where different organic products will be offered to buy at very affordable prices. Here you will have the opportunity to taste Mama Juana, pineapple wine, chocolate. After that you will have the chance to enjoy a refreshing drink sitting in the yard enjoying fresh air and the view of our garden with butterflies and fruits.

HIGUEY-1Now it’s time to move to Higuey where you will approach the Higüey Basilica. Devotees from every corner of the country flock this awe-inspiring shrine. Its splendor and elegant architecture will leave you breathless. (it’s required to pay a dollar to visit the church inside if you’re interested). Afterwards, you will head back to Paraiso Ranch, in the Anamuya Mountain, where you will enjoy a typical Dominican lunch and relax in a refreshing river, close to it. (During the time at the ranch the company is now offering the opportunity to experience some horseback riding and zip lining as well! These activities last around 30 minutes each and take place before lunch).

safari-punta-canaLast stop – Macao Beach! A visit to the Macao Beach is mandatory! Enjoy a spectacular view and learn how to boogie board at this famous beach or just relax in the sun before heading back to your hotel. You’ll stop at Macao beach for around 40 minutes. The tour guides will keep serving drinks. While there, you’ll be approached by local people offering to sell you anything (your picture with a monkey or iguana, hats, souvenirs, palm-leaf bowls and more). You can swim as well but I recommend to be already in your swimsuit, because there is no place to change.

This tour will take you on a memorable, incredible and amazing adventure to experience the people and life in the Dominican. If you’re looking to see how life is lived outside your country and have a day full of fun and a lifetime of memories this is one tour you don’t want to miss!!!
