Dominican North Coast Ride

Dominican North Coast Ride
Puerto Plata Dominican Republic
Get into that saddle and discover the new world - the real island of the Dominican!

On horseback you can enjoy the fantastic tropical views while discovering a different lifestyle and culture of a kindly and vivacious people. Get to know the authentic Dominican; taste delicious local cuisine, learn about island heritage and make new friends - here's our chance for an unforgettable experience!

The Dominican North Coast Ride begins with a jaunt to the 27 Waterfalls of Damajagua: a fairtytale-like labyrinth of tunnels and caves against a backdrops of  tropical mountain scenery. Here, we explore the first seven magical falls and glide down the natural rock slides into deep pools. Refreshed, we will carry on riding through fields of sugar cane and a plethora of mango groves, coconut trees and lush tropical vegetation. Then we will see the scenery change dramatically and the ride will take us to a region where we can find the odd cacti on the left and the deep turquoise of the Caribbean on our right. We continue on through tiny villages - where locals greets us with their friendly smiles and welcome us to eat in their local restaurants, grill fresh lobster on the beach, and stay with friends in small beach houses along the breathtaking Caribbean coastline. Along these Hidden Trails we find a Dominican strikingly similar to that which Columbus first encountered in 1493.

The overall journey travels from Puerto Plata into the interior and includes the Damajagua waterfalls, coastal villages of Luperon and Punta Rucia, and a visit to Paradise Island just off the coast. The first and last two nights are spent in Puerto Plata, where the ride ends with a celebratory party complete with music and dancing.
