Overview
Drive a Macao Buggy over the Dominican Republic's back roads on this 4-hour tour from Punta Cana. Pass palm trees and tobacco plantations with views of the Oriental Mountain Range. Stop at a ranch for an introduction to local produce like cocoa, coffee, tobacco and Mamajuana (a Dominican aphrodisiac elixir) and green tea leaves. Continue to a subterranean cavern with a sunken swimming hole for a dip, then end the day at Macao Beach, enjoying the sun and sand.
What to Expect
Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! It's time to rip up the Dominican off road and get a bit muddy!

From our ranch in Macao, we go tearing through the remote farmland of northern Punta Cana, passing palm trees and tobacco plantations with the Oriental Mountain Range deep in the background. These narrow, secluded country roads offer a safe haven for deep pools of mud that we'll go barging through again and again. At first, you may try and avoid the mud, but soon you'll give into the filth. This excursion is not for the dainty.

Our first stop is at a quaint country ranch for an introduction on local produce like cocoa, coffee, tobacco and Mamajuana (a Dominican aphrodisiac elixir) and green tea leaves. Back into the rocky off-road, among panoramic views of endless farmland and distant mountains, our excursion leads us to a picturesque cave complete with a deep natural swimming hole. Jump in, cool off and bathe in these refreshing underground waters.

The longest stretch of our drive is also the largest contrast. From the hidden countryside cave, we retrace our muddy path, and then some, to the shores of the photogenic Macao Beach, one of the last ‘resort free’ coastal stretches of Punta Cana. Here, we'll have time to enjoy this idealistic Caribbean Beach with rows of palm trees and azure waters.

So, rev your engine and get muddy with us on this Macao Buggy Adventure!

Fab day out, especially on a cloudy day!

Had a fantastic day on driving the dune buggies, a must do excursion! We got quite lucky that the only cloudy day of our whole holiday was when we did the buggies, which was perfect for this excursion as the rainstorm early in the morning...More

Good fun but be CAREFUL!!

The tour was well organised and a bit of fun. We paid $100 more for a private tour on top of what we paid for the trip and was well worth it....so not in a queue of 30+ other buggies. The children on the way...More

Thank you for the review. This is the first time in 11 years in business that we've heard of rocks being thrown and sickness being caused by the water in the cave. We will look into both comments but please also note that food sickness...More

My boyfriend and I loved this excursion! The roads we drove the buggies on were dirt with lots of potholes so we had a blast bouncing around. Tasting the cocoa and coffee was fun (yes they try to sell you stuff it’s how they make...More
