5. Ride N Zip Adventure in Puerto Plata
After hotel pickup, it's just about a 15-minute drive in an air-conditioned van to travel from town to the Country World Ranch. After the meet and greet at the Country House Bar, you will get equipped for the ziplines. Also, a bottle of fresh drinking water will be attached to your harness to make sure you stay well hydrated during this adventure.
After the safety briefing, it's time to feel the adrenaline on the 8 ACCT certified zip lines, with a total of more than 7,900 feet of galvanized, steel cable. The longest ride is 2,460 feet. No experience is required. Contrary to many other zip line parks you are not involved in any active braking, like using gloves for stopping. Between the lines, there are some walking distances. You determine your own speed and instructors will move at your pace.
Feel free to try the local fruits in season fresh from the tree. A natural juice will also be prepared to boost you with fresh energy.
On a relaxing countryside horseback ride you can enjoy some breathtaking views. The horses are well-trained, fed and in the best of health. The horseback ride included in this package is meant to be for beginners and children as well. Sufficient time will be taken to provide full, basic riding instructions.
With beginners and children, you will not gallop with the horses, if not requested otherwise. Depending on riding skills and experience, the right horse will be found for everybody.
Now it's time for a delicious home-cooked lunch, before taking a walk through a tropical garden. The group will head back to the hotels or cruise port in the early afternoon.
