Itinerary for Full Moon, Beach, and Mountain Riding Adventure



Sample Itinerary - subject to changes

Day 1: Arrival
Pick up from Puerto Plata airport and transfer to the Ecolodge up in the Puerto Plata Hills. Time to rest, unpack, have a relaxing moment, or a stroll through the lush tropical gardens and in the late afternoon join us for a welcome drink followed by dinner.
Meals included: Dinner
Overnight at the Ecolodge


Day 2: Introduction Ride & Visit of a Paso Fino Ranch
After a delicious breakfast with tropical fruit, our day starts with a riding adventure in the mountains, but first a short drive to our ranch where you will meet the horses and get them ready for the day. Up and up we go to an altitude of 2400 ft to El Cupey -- a village situated high above Puerto Plata with breath taking views over the city and the ocean. After a typical Dominican lunch, we continue for a refreshing swim in the river Camu and then we are on our way for a visit to a Paso Fino Ranch. Many of the prize winners in the National Paso Fino competitions have been bred here and you will just marvel at the elegance and strength of these full blood horses.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at the Ecolodge


Day 3: Waterfall Ride
Our day starts again with the short drive to the ranch. We will prepare the horses and jump in the saddle for an exciting ride to a hidden waterfall tucked away in the mountains. After a refreshing swim in the crystal clear water and lunch, we continue on quiet trails through small villages. We will visit a Dominican colmado where you will see all kinds of typical Dominican food stuff and can meet the kind and always smiling beautiful people of the Dominican Republic.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at the Ecolodge


Day 4: Beach Ride
Today is dedicated to the beach. In the morning we are going to take a break at the famous bay of Sosua where you can snorkel, sunbathe, or shop for the popular Dominican jewelry made with larimar or amber, or maybe you can't resist a Dominican primitive painting. After lunch we head for a deserted beach hidden by sugar cane fields and we will spend the afternoon galloping along a beautiful white sand stretch of beach. See the wind chase the clouds, feel the wind in your hair, and be in harmony with nature and the gentle horse that carries you. Afterwards, enjoy a refreshing swim with your horse in the ocean, which is a truly special experience. At sunset we prepare a delicious barbecued meal on the beach with roasted chicken and fish and you can sit and sing cowboy-style around the campfire. When we the time is right we will take you for a magical moonlight ride, bareback if you wish,  under the tropical sky brimming with bright stars for a truly Caribbean experience.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at the Ecolodge


Day 5: Ride to Los Ciruelos village
Our day is dedicated to both mountain and beach, starting out riding through a very rural area called Los Ciruelos. Picture small wooden houses and tropical flowers along the trails. Cocoa, coffee, and fruit plantations dot an area where there is not yet electricity, but people live in a quiet and harmonious way with nature, still farming their crops the old-school way. Tonight prepare for a farewell dinner on Cabarete Beach popular with surfers and lined with fashionable restaurants and bars.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at the Ecolodge


Day 6: Departure
All too soon the time has come to say goodbye to your horse, to the lovely people of the Dominican and the lush tropical island. We hope you come back soon!
