Activities

Anamuya Mountains Small Group Walking Tour

Take a walk on the wild side with a tour of the Dominican Republic's rugged Anamuya Mountains. See a snapshot of rural life as shown to you by an in-the-know local. Alex, one of our expert guides, says, ‘I'm a native and have been guiding tours here for more than 10 years. You'll learn about local history, plants and crops, and get to try home-grown coffee and fruit, too.'Fun facts, exotic wildlife and the chance to take a river swim – this tour has it all. After pick-up from your hotel, we'll head deep into the Dominican outback. And because we'll visit the less-travelled parts of the country, it helps support areas that don't usually benefit from tourism. What's more, you'll be part of a small group of just 16 guests, minimising our carbon footprint. ‘It's a great way to get in touch with nature and give back to the rural community,' says Alex. Rolling through the forest-carpeted countryside, we'll arrive at a ranch, where we begin with complimentary drinks and the lowdown on the day ahead.Set off trekking through luxuriant, peaked landscapes as your friendly guide shows you around. You'll meet the locals and taste locally grown seasonal products – from farm to fork, it doesn't get much fresher. Be sure to keep an eye out for rare plants, birds and wildlife, too. Being part of this experience is a boost to wildlife conservation efforts in the region. Finally, we'll head to the River Anamuya, where you can cool off with a well-earned swim.

Deep sea fishing

Deep sea fishing

The seas off Punta Cana are ideal for deep sea fishing. You'll cruise out into the open ocean in search of perfect fishing locations, cast your fishing rods over the edge of the boat and wait in beautiful surroundings for a fish to take the bait with other like-minded guests. You can go on either a morning or afternoon expedition and if you're not into fishing, you can just enjoy the boat trip.You'll have four hours of tracking and fishing. Of course, it won't be all work and no play – there'll be multiple fishing rods so that every guest can take it in turns to reel the prize in.While you're waiting patiently, you'll be able to help yourself from the self-service cooler on deck. But make sure you keep a close eye on the rods for signs of a bite as you never know when luck might strike. And if fishings not your thing, take the time to catch some rays on deck and enjoy a soft drink.
