    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!

    This was not worth the time or the money. We did 3 excursions on our trip, and this one was hands down the worst. Staff seemed bored. The dune buggies were in poor condition, and we left with bruises from all the bumps. Vendors everywhere. Not an authentic plantation home but
