One of the benefits of working for Amstar is that you get to do a lot of fun stuff at work. A couple of days ago I decided to check out Punta Cana´s popular Off-Road Tour to be able to share my review with you. When scheduling the activity I knew that it might rain in the next days and that my ride might get a little bit muddy. So I prepared myself to get dirty on this experience. Of course, I wanted to drive my own buggy, but I also had to videotape the experience. In the end, I invited a friend of mine, who drove while I was filming. Both of us had a great time!
The Jungle Buggy Tour
The beach buggy ride started at 9:00 am in the morning and took around 2.5 hours. During the buggy tour, we were able to see nature up-close while we ventured into different fields and places in the beautiful Dominican countryside. The adrenaline rush you get from the speed is amazing! And of course, the mud makes you feel like you’re a kid again! During this outdoor adventure, you may get really muddy. If you decide to book the wild tiger buggy adventure, please be prepared that depending on the weather conditions you will breathe the dust or get dirty. 😉
A little over halfway through the tour we stopped to rest and refresh ourselves. With the intention of selling us some of the local products, our guide offered us some typical Dominican products to try like local chocolate, coffee, and the famous local liquor “Mamajuana“. I always recommend guests to buy souvenirs on an excursion instead of the local Wal-Mart, if they are considering to do so. This way the money goes straight to producing families and it helps them to improve their quality of life.
After the short break, the off-road buggy race continued! My friend and I had an amazing time! I totally recommend the tour for all people that are in average to good physical conditions. During the ride, you will feel the rough terrain. And if you are not sure, better skip this activity since you want to enjoy your vacation without back pain.
