Description - What to expectYour Punta Cana Buggy Tour adventure starts with a pick-up at your hotel and a drive to the Flintstone Buggy Adventure Ranch located just 2km from the center of Bavaro. After arriving at the Ranch you'll receive a short briefing on how to drive your buggy safely and be provided with your safety helmet which you also need for the visit to the caves.
The Flintstone Buggy Trail has a length of 10 km (about 6.25miles) and takes you through a variety of landscapes and amazing countryside where you can see donkeys, cows, horses, sheep, pigs, and many different types of birds. After about 25 minutes of driving, the first stop is at a typical Dominican Campo and the local “colmado” (a small grocery store) where participants can taste some real Dominican coffee.
Around 15 minutes later the Punta Cana Buggy tour continues off-road offering breathtaking views. Travel past colorful houses and across the amazing landscape of banana plantations and farmland. The trail gets even more rocky and wild, and there are some panoramic views of the cliffs that have been formed over millions of years.
Next to your Punta Cana Buggy Tour is the so-called “Cave of Fantasy”. Get some brief instructions and enter the cave to admire magnificent and huge illuminated stalactites and stalagmites. Enjoy this authentic experience as you walk carefully In the cave. There have been few changes made to the cave, which has maintained its authenticity and beauty.
After exploring "Fantasy Cave", you will return back to the entrance and from there climb up the stairs to Bedrock City, another collection of caves located above the main large cave, which is a rare combination. Here you see the villa of Fred Flintstone, the garage with the Flintstone Mobile, based on the popular cartoon, and the movie with John Goodman and Hale Berry. After around 15 minutes spent inside the cave, enjoy a refreshment at the bar at the entrance of the cave and sit down and relive this magical adventure
End your Punta Cana Buggy Tour with a drive of your open-air dune buggy back to the ranch. Here you will have the opportunity to buy pictures from the tour and other souvenirs, or enjoy Dominican-flavoured drinks at the bar.
