For a real taste of Caribbean culture, look no further than this full day bus tour around the Dominican Republic. You'll visit remote villages while learning all about local produce and history.
The adventure kicks off as your guide regales you with the history of the island while we journey through cattle grazing lands and rice fields. You'll stop by a small rural school to meet its students, tour coffee, cocoa and sugar cane plantations, plus a coconut oil factory, too.
Head on to Higuey, and you'll see the famous Altagracia Basilica – a pilgrimage site because of its miraculous image of Our Lady – before a wander around the bustling market. Check out the views of the Cordillera Oriental mountains before we round off with a beach stop and lunch. There's also the option of a half-day tour that packs in plenty of fun highlights, but skips lunch and Altagracia Basilica.
