1. Las Terrenas: Private Coffee Trail ATV Tour
The tour will take you through country roads boarded by cacao and coffee fields, spectacular views over the Samana bay, and local farms. We’ll stop at a classic mountain farm, sharing some time with a family of farmers. You’ll be able to see some of the products they produce and visit their farm, learning about organic farming and plants. You’ll witness the difference between Las Terrenas, a busy beach destination, and the countryside, with its clean air and slow-paced way of life. If you want, the farmers will show you how coffee or cacao is made, from the tree to your table. You can then sip on a cup of coffee or hot cocoa. Don’t worry, if you don’t speak Spanish, our local tour guide will translate everything for you. Next stop is a small beach on the Samana Bay where you can take a dip and cool off for a while. On the way, we’ll pass through many fields, farms, and viewpoints. Most of the trip is on dirt roads, it’s a lot of fun driving the ATV there, up and down, through bumps and holes. If you are not 100% comfortable driving an ATV or if speed is not your thing, don’t worry, you can either drive slow (more time to enjoy the view!) or you can ride with someone, most ATV can sit two people. Driving an ATV is pretty straightforward and even if it’s your first time you should get the hang of it pretty quickly.
