And a huge part of terrific excursions you can experience right in Punta Cana!
Yes, this island has absolutely everything! No wonder the locals call their island the most unique place on Earth. Just imagine that on a section of 750 km from west to east and 350 km from north to south, there is such a huge number of unique and truly inimitable places.

The largest theme park in Punta Cana, the Jurassic park with full-sized mechanical dinosaurs, more than 15 activities such as segway, zip line, Dino World, climbing garden, bungee dome, and many more… But Zipline was the one that won the hearts of tourists.
What kind of excursions are there in Punta Cana?
Initially, the zip-line was used as a vehicle in some mountainous countries for quite a long time. Even today, in remote areas of China, trolls are used as a means of crossing rivers. This is a breathtaking 35 km/h zip line over tropical beauty! This is an opportunity to feel like a bird soaring in the sky.
A zipline is an activity when a person slides over the ground along equipped zip lines. Ziplines consist of stationary platforms connected to each other by a strong steel cable. The total length of the zip line can be up to several kilometers!
Before you go to the zipline ride, you will be given a preliminary briefing and protective equipment. Programs of zip line packages can last from 35 to 60 minutes. And you can splash in the end right into the water!
Another pleasure for extreme lovers will be a buggy tour. What is it? A dizzying ride on an all-terrain high-speed and maximum reliable vehicle on a tropical island along the ocean. Buggy is a light four-wheeled form of transport, equipped with either a car or a motorcycle engine, all-terrain, and designed for driving over rough terrain. The Buggy ride usually includes:
- Transfer from the hotel. Buggy tour along the Atlantic coast or extreme offroad adventure. Caribbean views can't be forgotten for the rest of your life!

Is it cheaper to buy excursions in advance?
No. If we talk about the price for the excursion, it depends on:
- Trip duration, type of vehicle. Presence of a guide, group size
- Additional options (private beach, lunch, drinks, special equipment, entrance tickets to museums and parks, etc.)
Group excursion or individual?
Tourists often prefer individual excursions to group ones. Of course, a group tour has its own pros, like, you can meet other vacationers, share your impressions with them. If you are traveling alone, you can ask to take a photo of you. However, the group excursion has a number of cons as:
- A group trip presupposes following a certain schedule of the excursion, and sometimes you really want to stay in the places of interest for a longer time
- Not everyone likes to get up early in the morning in order to travel by bus for a long time and collect the rest of the tourists for an excursion
- Very often loud laughter and absolutely inappropriate jokes of other members of the excursion become a source of dissatisfaction and irritation
- It's impossible to find out all the details you want about the place of interest because the guide has timing and a lot of members in a group.
An individual excursion is so different. It does not have these disadvantages. You can fully appreciate all the pros of the excursion, which takes place in a comfortable car, together with an educated and attentive guide. In this case, the route and travel schedule is based only on your preferences. So, before leaving, a route is preliminarily made up, which, if necessary, can be changed during a tour.
An individual trip with your own guide is an opportunity to stop at any time in the place you like, relax and enjoy every moment.
The only cons of an individual excursion is the price. Of course, it will be higher than the prices for group excursions. However, it is not so high as to give up all its bonuses.
