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 Half-Day Dune Buggy Adventure. 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 four-person buggy with other travelers or steering solo as you make your way through the stunning and diverse landscapes of Dominican Republic.

Pass colorful Caribbean houses en route to sample real Dominican coffee. Then follow along the natural paths lined with palm trees and banana plantations towards an authentic limestone mine. You’ll return using a paved road through La Caiba and Macao, where you’ll visit a local colmado (grocery store) and interact with residents while you sip on cold drinks and enjoy savory snacks.

This trip includes an epic stretch of white sand near Macao Beach, complete with stunning ocean views. There’s even time to take a dip before returning to Punta Cana.

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.

Never showed up. Lied.
, Aug 2021
I would give a zero but you can’t. They never picked me up from my hotel. I called and they said they had tried to reach me. I did not have or email from the company. When I filed a dispute they lied and say they sent numerous emails.

Please always check your voucher. If YOU have to confirm and give information, please do so. Us sending emails asking where you are is pure courtesy. Please have a look on the Map and choose an excursion close to you and not 500 KM & 6 Hours away, on the other side of the Island. (Which still is not a problem if you follow the instructions on your voucher and confirm 48 hours before your trip. You can easily still cancel with a full refund. ) If you call 30 minutes after your excursion time, never shared your Hotel information with the tour supplier ( And tell them that you are 430 KM away) , never called or emailed as you are ask to do on your booking, Information, please do not call other people liars. ... with your booking you make sure we keep your Buggy for you on the day that you choose. For us that means, we can not give it to anybody else. ... and we did not. But we also can not pay for your mistake. Check your Voucher, read your travel agreement.
The real deal! Fun, exciting and real.

This tour was exciting and fast paced. Ask for Ralph as a guide. But, do be sure you can keep up! Very exciting to see the real Dominican lifestyle with an experienced guide. It was a great time a real authentic buggy experience. My buggy was in great running condition for our tour.

Thank you Jordan, it was a pleasure having you on our tour. We hope to see you again on our full day adventure, ... soemtime!
Great, mud-filled ride!

If you want to go off the beaten path and get down and dirty, this is the one to do! You, or a member of your party must be able to drive a 4 speed. These are Volkswagen dune buggies with a 4 speed. Bring water and a few munchies they don’t provide much due to COVID. And no sandals if you are driving!

Awesome for Real Drivers
, Mar 2019
This is not that regular ATV experience. It's something more, extra! It's not for occasional drivers, it's for real driver enthusiasts. If you like Volkswagen, they use the old Beetle as a base to the buggies (like the Cali Buggies) Aircooled Flat Engines and Stick Shift (old beetle gearbox as well) So be prepared to a driving challenge if you are not used to Old Gearboxes!!! The trail and the experience was awesome, I wish I've done full day instead half a day!!!!
, Jan 2019
I booked this excursion as a gift for someone. I was so terribly nervous leaving the resort (everyone kept saying don’t leave the resort)! I’m SO happy I did not listen and followed through with the excursion. What an incredible amazing experience. We did get muddy and the was fun but there are no words to describe the knowledge and new found respect I have for the people of the Dominican Republic, not to mention my increased appreciation for my freedoms and to be an American citizen! I walked away from this trip with a desire to learn more about the Dominican Republic. I loved the resort but this experience was by far my favorite part of the trip! A huge Thank you to Mark (our tour guide) for sharing your knowledge and love of this country!!! And thank you to Angela for all you do to help the animals❤️ I would recommend to anyone that goes to being a bag full of candy/treats for the children and a bag full of treats for the dogs (they are so sweet and appreciative of this).

Overall, we totally recommend this tour! You definitely will get dirty, so wear clothes you plan on throwing away bring a bandana and wear a bathing suit underneath and bring a towel. But it is really fun getting splashed with mud! Our English tour was quite small, only us, the tour guide, and one other family, so youll most likely get your own dune buggy which is great! Throughout the tour we stopped a few times where our tour guide, Mark, told us about the real Dominican Republic that tourists dont normally see. It was so interesting and he is so knowledgeable and funny! It is a must that you drive stick shift and well. Also, on the first part of the tour, the roads are very bumpy so if youre sensitive to that, beware. In a nutshell, this tour is a must and we had so much fun!
Great experience and revealing look...
, Apr 2018
Great experience and revealing look at residents' life in the DR. The guide Charlie was a little cranky and obsessed about his dune buggies BMWs they are not, but overall it was a blast, fun, interesting, and really beautiful. Bring bandannas for your face, candy for the kids along the way, and if you mind mud in all your crevices, it's not the adventure for you!

We had the BEST day with Mark. He not only provided us with a safe adventure through the Dominican Republic, but he also taught us so much about the people and the country. It was a perfect trip for my 7 year old as well. It was beautiful, fun and truly a wonderful day. Thank you Mark!!!! We have great memories. Way better than any other dune buggy excursion. Others at our hotel complained about their trip and were very jealous of the small number and personal attention we received. Do not look any further!

, Apr 2018
This was an amazing tour. The tour driver was so knowledgeable and we learned a lot and saw A LOT of different scenery. Really really enjoyed this excursion. I would do it again. The only thing that I wish was that the seats were movable so for short people like me it would be easier to drive. Oh and you get VERY muddy on this trip LOL. Don't plan to wear those clothes again on your vacation.
