What people are saying about Puerto Plata

It was beautiful, not exactly as described with waterfalls, but a nice horseback ride on the beach. I was only once on a horse, the guides helped and they were great, so that I could ride with them without any problems. In addition, we were a small group of four people, which is definitely a plus point compared to the other providers with around 20 participants. In addition, those with experience also had the opportunity to gallop along the beach. The only negative point we found was the break, where they sometimes tried to sell local products in a rather pushy way. I would recommend this excursion to everyone.

This was an AMAZING experience! I had my 7 year old and 10 year old with me and our guides were so kind and catering to us. We were picked up at the hotel on time and greeted with a smile. The horses were gentle and the scenery was BEAUTIFUL! The kids want to do it again. I HIGHLY recommend this excursion to everyone! Thank you so much for a great day and a lifetime of memories.

The Company was very easy to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed our horseback riding through the mountains. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We learned about the different vegetations and about Dominican lifestyles. Definitely recommend!

Very experienced and knowledgeable guide. I had a great time. Will definitely do it again. Owner very nice and helpful.

Flying the zip lines and jumping down the falls was a great experience
