Explore the beating heart of the Dominican Republic

Adventure and culture await on this impressive Bavaro Runners trip near Punta Cana. Take yourself away from your resort with a transfer to the Dominican countryside. There, you’ll soon discover the most incredible sights, sounds and smells of the remote corners of the island.

A safari-style truck will take you to the backroads, where everything is laid out right before you. Take in the rich vastness of sugar cane fields, coffee trees and cocoa plantations.

From there, it’s onward to lush tropical forests and jungle-mountains for a slice of authentic life in the Dominican Republic. Visit a rural school, see a typical Dominican home, and eat fruit right off the trees!

Find out how cigars and rum are made

Afterward, enjoy a traditional homemade lunch, followed by lessons about traditional Dominican culture and customs from local farmers. Learn everything from how the crops have been ploughed through the decades, to how tobacco leaves are harvested for the world-famous cigars that are made here, to the processes behind transforming cane juice into the warm notes and aromatic flavors of the region’s finest rum.

Wrap it up with a splash!
