Inland Safaris

From Puerto Plata to Punta Cana, hopping on an inland safari is a great way to get a feel for the Dominican countryside. Major tour operators offer a variety of excursions into the nearest villages and towns, where you’ll be the only tourists, as you ride deep into the hills on all-terrain trucks, or drive in your own ATV or quad, taking in the scenery and meeting our locals along the way. In Puerto Plata, excursions take you along the north coast’s lush hills and into traditional homes where you’ll sip on freshly chopped coconut to cool off. In Punta Cana, safaris ride through towns like Otra Banda, where meat shops hang their produce outdoors, and end with sun and sand at Macao Beach.

Inland safaris, available from most tourist hubs, reveal the DR beyond the beach.

INLAND SAFARIS IN
Dominican Republic

Bump and ride past cattle, stop in villages for fresh coconut water, and tour plantations: the DR’s inland safaris are a window into the country’s scenic countryside.

 
 
Whether riding in an all-terrain truck or steering your own ATV on bumpy dirt roads, you’ll quickly immerse deep into Puerto Plata’s scenic countryside–stopping at a local’s home for coffee, or for views along the Atlantic coastline for photo ops.
Puerto Plata
Ride through the Dominican countryside in off-road vehicles, meet locals, and feel the warmth of the DR.
Punta Cana
Hop in all-terrain vehicles to drive your way to Playa Rincón, or Playa El Valle, while passing through rural communities along the way, stopping for local snacks and drinks, lunch on the beach, and even a waterfall swim.

The low-lying Cave of the Swallows or Cueva de las Golondrinas is tucked along the scraggly Atlantic coastline of Río San Juan, just a five-minute boat ride from town. An optional stop on tours of Laguna Gri Gri, your captain will steer the boat inside the small cavern–watch your head–to view its rock composition from ceiling to floor while you float on crystal clear turquoise waters. Once the boat exits the cave, you can choose to swim in the calm natural pool surrounding the area.🤿🐠  Tag someone you'd love to explore this astonishing place with. 👯‍♀️🌞  📸: @nomadavirtual
