What is cooler than exploring the countryside of the Dominican Republic, including green tropical rainforests, cascading waterfalls, limestone rock formations and white-sand beaches? Doing it while riding aboard 15-foot tall mega trucks. These 6x6 safari-style trucks will have you roaring over the lush landscape before you enjoy zip lining over the canopy and horseback riding ranch-style on a Puerto Plata adventure.
Ride A Monster Truck Across the Countryside
Your full-day Puerto Plata adventure begins with a ride in a 6x6 open-air truck, where you will cross streams and rivers to visit a handful of the 27 waterfalls and lagoons known as the 27 Charcos. You will have a chance to get out and climb some of the falls, sliding along natural rock slides into crisp crystalline waters flowing along the Damajagua River. You will enjoy lunch and beverages before moving on to the next set of activities.
Soar Above a Canopy and Explore a Plantation
After you have dried off from your natural pools swim, you will be whisked away in the mega truck to a zip lining circuit traversing the rainforest canopy. As you soar above trees that are more than 100 years old, take in the island’s majestic birds’-eye views. Following your “shrilling” rides, it is time to climb onto the back of a horse for another look at the landscape. Your horseback ride will take you across a Dominican plantation, and completes the trifecta of drive, fly and ride that you experience on your Puerto Plata adventure. (You can choose to hike around the plantation instead of riding a horse)
