We begin our excursion on a Western route towards Cofresi, where our first stop will be the mangroves where the guide will give a brief description of this landmark and the importance to our coastline. We continue on our trek along the coast passing local public schools and fishing villages until we reach Bahia de Maimon. Here a brief explanation of the history of this area is given.
We continue through a rugged, mountain road with an amazing view of Puerto Plata about 110 meters above sea level. Witness the variety of ecosystems - from palm trees to majestic mango trees to prickly cactus'. Stop at a typical country home where you can interact with the family living here and have the opportunity to witness the culture and way of life of the local people. Bathroom facilities are available here. Coffee made from their locally grown beans will be offered.
Drive through the small communities of Palo Indio and El Toro until we reach Playa Gusmancito, where we stop and have the opportunity to catch a wave on a moray boogie board on this lovely and remote beach or just relax while sipping "Cuba Libre" or sunbath, all to the soothing sound of nature.
From this exciting stop we now make our way to our Puerto Plata Runners Beach Ranch located on a lovely beach with abundant sea life….
Our second last stop is a visit to a small cigar factory where guests are encouraged to try the products or buy cigars at a very good price. Selected participants will have the chance to make their own cigar - in the tradition of the Dominicans that has been used for hundreds of years.
Our last stop will be at another lovely beach area Teco, where you can sample fresh exotic Caribbean fruits. The price includes transportation, any entrance fees, tour guide, lunch, beer, rum, water and soft drinks during the excursion.
