What you can expect

Experience a culturally enriching journey into the local side of Puerto Plata, with a guided tour that shows you both the picturesque sights and the day-to-day lives of locals. Your adventures take you up majestic mountains and down into the Bay of Maimon, powered by traditional Dominican food and rum.

Start your journey by gazing at the claw-like mangrove roots as they stretch out from the shores of Guzmancito, and learn how these resilient plants help preserve the beauty of the coastline. While there, stop by a school to see the future of the Dominican Republic, take the time to participate in the education of young Dominicans.

As you traverse a bumpy mountain road, breathtaking views of the shimmering waters of Bay of Maimon reveal themselves, all framed by exotic mango trees and prickly cacti. Then, settle in as a Dominican family invites you into their home, where you hear their stories and learn about life in Puerto Plata.

Saddle up on a horse and gallop along the coastline, or put on your swimsuit and boogie board over the blue waters. After brushing the sand off your feet, return to the relaxing Puerto Plata Runners Beach Ranch and feast on a buffet of authentic Dominican dishes, with an open bar. Next, head back out for a tour of a rustic cigar factory, where you learn about the production process and can buy a few to take home.

Cap off the day with some smooth Dominican rum from a rum shack and a refreshing coconut cream-infused Coco Loco at a popular tavern.
