If you are familiar with driving stick shift, ... We are your best and only option in Punta Cana!

Ladies and gentlemen, start your VW engines! Prepare yourself for a half-day Dominican Republic adventure in a very small group of 3-5 Original Full size Dune Buggy's, as you zip through the beautiful countryside.  Departing from Punta Cana, you'll travel past colorful houses and across the breathtaking landscape. Get to know the true Dominican Countryside and meet the real people at our stops. Have fun driving our 4 speed stick shift Dune Buggy while you explore your Holiday destination.
  • Dune buggy tour takes you off the beaten path in the Dominican Republic
  • Drive past plantations, beaches, and farmland
  • Manual transmission with 4-speed stick shift and VW engine
  • Get a sense of everyday Dominican life by getting away from tourist areas
  • Coffee, snacks, and beverages served to keep you fueled

What to Expect
Begin your trip with pickup from your Punta Cana hotel, and transfer to the dune buggy base for a quick safety briefing. Then, hop into your speedy off-road vehicle, suitable for one to four people, and head out to the Dominican countryside. Drive down muddy off-road paths, two-lane country roads, and even a highway en route to off-the-beaten-track attractions, including a limestone mine and colmado (grocery store) that provide a sense of everyday life in the Dominican Republic. Stop for a fresh cup of coffee and a dip in the ocean at Macao Beach before returning to your original departure point. This dune buggy tour concludes with hotel drop-off.

This excursion surpassed our expectations. The knowable guides led us through many amazing sites and authentic local villages. Between stops we drove through some wicked off road trails. Highly recommend booking this for couples and families alike. Well worth the cost!
