If you’re looking for an adventurous muddy time I highly suggest taking the Adventure Buggies from Vacaciones Barcelo in Punta Cana. This is my first every dune buggy excursion and it has to one of the best excursions I have done in the Caribbean. I can not remember when I got so dirty.
I was the driver of Kellie B and I, at first I tried to dodge the pothole and mud. I really thought I was going to be able to stay clean. Oh boy was I wrong. I ended up with mud everywhere and I mean EVERYWHERE, places I have never had mud before!!
The trip started off with about a 25 minute ride to an unspoiled beach in Macao. Along the way we stopped for a herd of cows, saw some school kids dressed in their uniform and locals working coffee plantations. Once we arrived at the beach was absolutely beautiful. It has a few shops of goods that locals were selling and a small restaurant. You could tell the beach was pretty much in the middle of now where. There were about 150 people there and you could tell they all came with excursions.
After about 20 minutes at the beach off in the dune buggys we went. I was so clean after a dip in the ocean, but that came to an end real quick. Next we were heading to a plantation where they were growing coffee and tobacco. It was about a 20 minute drive. I never knew I could get so dirty in 20 minutes! Once we arrived there were outdoor showers to rinse off before we learned about local rum, coffee and chocolate harvesting.
The best part about this stop was a short nature walk to a cenote. We walked through beautiful gardens and magical waterfalls before climbing down into a small cave and jumped into a cold fresh water cenote. This was my favorite part of the trip. It was amazing, Not only was the water cool and refreshing, but I was clean once again.
All good things come to an end, back on the dune buggy we went. Thankfully, it was only a 15 minute ride back to where we started. I tried so hard not to the muddy along the way, but it didn’t work. The whole trip was so much fun. Next time I take Kaden to Punta Cana I am so booking this excursion for him. He would have loved it. It is a great family excursion in Punta Cana.
