What to expect
Your friendly and professional guide will collect you from your Punta Cana hotel and transport you to your dune buggy as part of this Punta Cana Full-Day Dune Buggy Adventure to Lemon Lagoon Bay. Upon arrival, you’ll receive a safety and rules briefing before taking off on the trip of a lifetime! These speedy vehicles, complete with stick-shift transmission and VW engines, have unmatched agility. Choose from a 4-person buggy with other travelers or steering solo as you make your way through 115 miles (190 km) of Dominican Republic landscapes. You’ll make your way through the famous beach town of Uvero Alto, then on to the rice fields of Nissibon. Make a stop at one of the local colmados for an ice-cold soft drink. Once you’re feeling refreshed, take off through Playa La Vacama, through a secluded 9-mile (15 km) palm-lined beach.  From La Vacama, it’s not much further to the village where you'll enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. Then, the group will head to the lagoon where you'll take a boat cruise through mangroves to a deserted beach. At the beach, you'll have time to explore and enjoy a fresh coconut. Then head back over the lagoon and stop at Doña Alexandrina's house for some local fruit and a coffee before taking the buggies back to Bavaro.  Enjoy the amenities of this striking hotel before saddling up for a horseback ride along the stunning sandy beach. After the ride, you’ll cruise in your dune buggy to Zadanja. Quench your thirst with another cold drink and snack from the colmado before returning to Punta Cana and your hotel of choice. Please note: Dune buggies have manual transmissions and operate with a 4-speed stick shift. No training is available and drivers must know how to drive a manual transmission.

If you want to see the true beauty of the DR this tour is definitely the right choice.
Mar 2020 • Couples
We had the day tour with 4 buggies in total. It was the the perfect balance between meeting new people but not too many that you get lost in the group. The buggies which are based on the Volkswagen Beatle drive perfectly through the dominican terrain. Besides the buggies the tour came across some breathtaking sides like remote beaches and typical dominican villages and much much more. Additionally are the guides very friendly and provide you with interesting knowledge throughout the tour.
Definitely a must do in your holidays!

My husband & I booked this trip for a full day. We cannot express how awesome and fun this trip was, we got to ride in our own buggy drive on the roads, trails, mountains, beach & see how the Dominicans truly live, we drove through streets and stopped at a general store for some authentic snacks, our guide was AMAZING, you can truly tell he loves his job and was so great with information. We felt so safe & it was so educational and humbling to see the other side of Dominican besides just the fancy resorts. We would totally recommend a full day! It’s so worth it, they kept us fed with GREAT food and fun stops along the way. We were covered in dirt towards the end from mudding through puddles but were met with coffee, hot cocoa (the real deal) great homemade snacks, a river to rinse off and cool down in. Honestly one of the best experiences my husband and I have ever done. The staff was so incredibly nice, we met the owners who actually help do the tours as well. These people took great care of us. Close to the resort so we weren’t stuck on the bus forever. My first review I’ve ever left for anything. But they are worth a shoutout!!!!! Go do this ASAP!!!!! You won’t regret it!!!!!

No other buggy company can match what these guys have going on here!!
Oct 2018 • Friends
I decided that I wanted to do something fun and interesting for my bachelor party so I came up with dune buggying. I was searching for some of the best dune buggy experiences when I came across Xtreme-Buggy in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. One of the reasons I chose this excursion was because it was stick and cars are always more fun to drive when they are stick. After deciding to give this excursion a shot I booked a trip to Punta Cana for me and guys. I am so happy we went with this excursion because it is the most fun i've ever had and way exceeded any of my expectations.

First off, Angela was so easy to contact and work with while setting up the excursion and the logistics associated with the trip. She was very friendly and easy to talk to and was very accomodating and willing to work with our tight schedule. They also sent a van to our resort to pick us up and drop us off before and after the excursion.

When we got to their shop. We met Charlie (the owner), and Mark, who was our tour guide. Mark was an amazing tour guide!! He was super chill, yet really fun and really easy to get along with; one of the nicest, coolest guys you will ever meet. He was also extremely knowledgable about the buisness, the cars, the country, the culture, and the destinations we were visiting. He gave us a real and in depth look at the Dominican Republic and all that it has to offer.

We started driving out of the shop and we were immediately out onto the public roads of the DR. It was really cool that we were able to drive these vehicles on the highways and city roads as well as off roading through the mud and sand. We made several stops along the full day excursion, including a typical Dominican food market, a typical Dominican house on the country side and several beautiful beaches. He explained a little bit about Dominican lifestyle, culture, history, politics and education with every stop.

For lunch, we stopped at a local women's house and had a real, homemade Dominican meal and it was by far the best meal we had in Punta Cana. There was plenty of amazing food to go around. Everything I had was delicious. One of Xtreme-Buggy's sayings is "You won't go hungry on this trip!" and I can vouche for them. This women was so kind for opening up her home to Xtreme-Buggy and to us even though we were covered in mud. Later in the day, we stopped back here for fresh fruits and coffee. The coffee was absolutely amazing! Full of flavor and just what I needed after a long day of driving and adventure.

After the wonderful meal, I was stuffed and ready for a nap. Luckily, we drove over to the local "Coast Guard" building stationed by a lagoon and took a nice relaxing boat ride across the lagoon to a beautiful undeveloped beach. One of the local guides that accompanied us to this beach climbed one of the tall coconut trees with no ropes to get some fresh coconuts. He sliced them open with a machete and we were drinking fresh coconut water and eating bits of fresh coconut on the beach.

All these destinations were so beautiful and unique in their own ways but my favorite part of the whole trip was the journey getting to each one of these stops. We convoyed our way through the DR over local, busy city roads and long, open highways, getting a feel and a tour of the real Dominican Republic, not just the beach by our resort or the downtown areas of Punta Cana. It felt amazing driving in an open buggy cruising down the highways with the sun drying us off. And of course, we careened through the muddy, rocky country roads and got squirely over the white sand roads through the palm tree forests by the beach. Mark let us open up the cars and not just baby them as we were driving across all types of terrain. These buggies are well maintained and drove beautifully, and comfortably with no issues whatsoever. The whole excursion was a combination of thrillseeking, breathtaking, and eye-opening experiences. I would give Xtreme-Buggy a 10 out of 5 rating! Hands down the best excursion I have ever done! If I ever find myself in Punta Cana again, I am definitely taking another tour with Xtreme-Buggy. No other buggy excursion company can match what these guys have going on here.

Best excursion i have even been on
Jun 2018 • Couples
I had been looking at doing a dune buggy excursion for the last 2 times i have come to punta cana. every single one seemed to be the exact same thing going to the exact same places with lots of other buggy's.

This was the one excursion i found that was different. It is a full day, but we finished wishing we could have done even more as it was so much fun.

We had a great tour guide that knows so much about the Dominican Republic.

The ride takes you up into the mountains, down to the beach, through a coconut farm, on the highways, on back roads, through small towns. Basically everywhere.

We got to see so many different places and had a blast doing it.

They also only do small groups. Ours consisted of 3 buggies and 1 guide.

The horseback riding does not exist anymore, but there is a unique story behind why that is gone that you can ask about. It was replaced with a boat ride to Limon lagoon. This was one place that also set this apart from other excursions. All the other buggy excursions go to Maco beach, which we did go to, and were there with about 20 other tours. Limon lagoon was isolated. We were the only ones there and it opened up to a beach that is one of the best looking beaches and waters i have ever seen.

This is one of only 2 tours me and my wife have been to in the 8 times we have traveled to the caribbean that we have already said we will do again.

One tip, wear clothes you do not care about. You will get wet, and the mud will stain everything.

WOW!!!
Literally just got back to the hotel from this and couldn’t wait to write a review! UNBELIEVABLE Excursion!! Wife and I went and had the buggy to ourselves. The guide was awesome and a ton of fun! The second you met him and the owner you knew you were in for a great time! Buggy’s are LEGIT VW dune buggy’s!! Don’t mistake these for the other companies. Full size and full speed. Definitely need to know manual transmission expertly if you are going to drive! I’d come back to the DR just to do this again!!! You get a real sense of the Dominican culture because they actually take you off the beaten path and show you the REAL life. Highly recommend booking! Deserve more than 5 stars! “No Filter” Mark is the best guide and “Crabby Charlie is hilarious! Cannot go wrong with either!
