The Wild Side of Punta Cana



On family vacations, travelers are always looking for something to do. When you want to experience something outside of the normal routines that come with all inclusive travel, such as restaurants, beaches & pools, on your next trip to Punta Cana, take a walk on the wild side instead. Or in this case, a drive. You don't have to travel far to immerse yourself in nature in the Dominican Republic & there are a few options available to tourists so they can see it in all its glory.

The Monster Truck Safari If you & your family or friends are sick of the typical tourist traps in a given location, take a ride in the largest trucks on the island in the Monster Truck Safari. According to the safari's website, these massive 8×8 vehicles will give you an excellent vantage point 15 feet in the air as you are lead on a tour through the diverse terrain of the island.

Explore the back roads as you get the chance to meet locals while stopping at villages & schools in an authentic experience to fully understand the way of life on the island. Drive passed sugar cane fields & crash through rivers before feasting on an all you can eat buffet. The Monster Truck Safari will let you see a new side to this popular vacation destination & do something a little different than the standard getaway activities.

An Xtreme Buggy excursion If you're more interested in being at the wheel of a powerful machine, then a trip with Xtreme Buggy is for you. Back at home you may not have many chances to let loose & drive without care, but inside a dune buggy, the possibilities are limitless. Experience the thrill as you shift gears while speeding through all kinds of terrain, including plantations, beaches & rough roads.

There are a number of different trips available that are as brief as half a day or up to three days long where you witness the natural beauty of the island bouncing around inside one of the buggies, stated the tour's website. You'll be impressed by these vehicles' power & maneuverability when you overcome all obstacles in your path. After you've launched off of a few sand dunes, jump into the waves to cool off from this exhilarating ride.

After you've had your fill of laying by the water, jump into a vehicle & let loose in Punta Cana. You won't regret it.
