Outback Safari Adventure Tour from Puerto Plata
US$79.00
Overview
Ride in an open-top safari truck to access some rugged parts of the island that traditional tours can't. With a guide providing commentary on the Dominican Republic's ecosystem, history, and culture, explore the island's North Coast by getting far off the beaten path. This seamless tour includes hotel pickup and drop-off from Puerto Plata, lunch, and an open bar.
What to Expect
Most Puerto Plata hotel guests enjoy convenient pickup; others board the open-top, safari-style truck at a designated meeting place. Settle in, sip drinks from the open bar, and listen to Caribbean tunes while you ride.

Admire the scenery, as the truck winds up rugged back roads to Mt. Isabella, moving through territory that ordinary tour buses can't handle. Pass through local villages, take photos, and visit a fruit, chocolate, and coffee plantation to learn about Dominican agriculture. Meet residents of the rural northern coast in their home and learn about what daily life is like. Stop at a local school before taking a refreshing dip at a nearby river.

Eat lunch at a rural ranch and meet some of its rescues, including crocodiles, iguanas, and other wildlife. Browse on-site crafts market for souvenirs and relax at a hidden beach known only to locals before returning to your original departure point.
