What people are saying about Punta Cana

We had a fabulous time doing the duel trip or Zipline and monkey land tour. Transportation picked us up right at our hotel and got to the park at a reasonable time. The Zip lines were great, 12 total! (Some high and long others short and quick). Our guides name was Melvin-he was wonderful. Very enthusiastic, energetic, funny, and knowledgeable. After ziplining some of the other guides help describe some local products which you get to try and buy some souvenirs if you want. The last part of the day was our favorite, the enclosure with the small monkeys was awesome! They jump and crawl all over you. You have lots of time in the large area with them (probably 45 minutes!) and you get to take your own pictures and videos. The guides take your picture with a beautiful backdrop for a small charge. All in all this was a great day- highly recommend!!

Fantastic trip with lots to absorb, really well paced and feel like this day will be one to remember for many years. The guide offered valuable insights and we really felt like we got a taste of the Dominican lifestyle and culture. The sights were incredible, our Gopro stayed warm throughout the trip! Make sure that you leave some tips to the horseriding assistants, they work really hard! (and perhaps avoid making the mistake of bringing British pounds as they have never seen that before)...

The gate was very interesting, lots to see and safe at all times. We also drove through big puddles because it has been raining a lot the last few days, which has boosted the adventure level. . The transfer also worked great. Overall, the tour was worth it. But the tour wasn't in German.

Super fun tour, saw beautiful nature during the buggy tour and then concluded with a great party on the boat. Highly recommended! PS: bring a drink with you to the buggy tour!

The route is the goal. A beautiful hike on a beautiful mountain. Quiet, secluded, picturesque. A great variety of plants and animals awaits you.
