Full description
After being collected from your accommodation, you will make your way to your jungle buggy. There your specialized guides will teach you everything related to the safety and driving of the buggy, which you will discover are very easy to drive. Once departing, you will begin exploring the incredible terrain in the unique style that only a 4x4 can provide. You'll then continue your tour with a visit to the coconut house or “Casa del Coco” to learn how coconut oil is produced. There you will also taste fresh organic products such as exotic Caribbean fruit, roasted coffee, and cacao. The next 45 minutes will be spent taking a guided tour of Monkeyland, where you will interact in close proximity with the park's beautiful and friendly squirrel monkeys. These charming and intelligent monkeys have been formed by a Canadian couple with more than 35 years of experience working with animals, including 12 years at the Toronto Zoo teaching monkeys to trust and enjoy the company of humans. You will later finish your adventure by winding down at the Mountain Ranch and feasting on some delicious and traditional Dominican food.

No geral gostei da experiência, mas os buggys estão mal cuidados, com cintos de segurança que não funcionam, e por outro lado, o almoço, não se tratou de um almoço, mas sim de um pão com salsicha, acompanhado de dois pedacinhos de coco e de ananás, sem uma bebida para acompanhar. Uma decepção de almoço.

I had booked this as I was mostly interested in the buggy rides. There was no option to do buggies alone though. The guides at MonkeyLand were terribly rude. They said we could take pictures but when we were trying to take pictures at good moments they stopped us saying we can buy the ones they take. They also starved us and were stingy on food. We were picked up at 7am and they didnt provide lunch as specified. Instead they gave us a limited snack at 2pm. My 6 year old daughter was starving by then. This is ridiculous, please provide more food if you are going to hold us at the park. At the very least, build a cafeteria where people can buy food if you are too cheap to feed your guests! Also besides MonkeyLand and Buggy we are forced to sit through a bunch of marketing presentations geared towards us buying their cigars, coffee and coconut oil. This should be optional and we shouldn't be forced to sit through "educational" sessions that are more aimed at making you spend money.
