ATV Dominican Adventure
Start this great adventure by meeting with your friendly, local guide just outside your Amber Cove, Puerto Plata cruise ship pier area. Climb aboard the comfortable transportation for a short, 2-minute ride to the ATV base camp.
The base is located at a private, local ranch complete with picturesque lush, tropical vegetation, fun trails, and small streams. Once you've arrive, you will be matched up with a Honda 420cc 4X4 ATV. You will be given brief safety instructions, but these are very simple to drive. In fact, beginners are welcome and there's no license required to drive. Once you're on your ATV and strap on your helmet (mandatory), it's time to follow your guide through the ranch, past little houses and farms where you will see the authentic countryside.
Drive your ATV on various terrains including two beaches and through the ever-changing countryside. You will ride for approximately 15 minutes to Teco's Beach, make a stop for a quick dip in the ocean if you wish or simply enjoy the view and a refreshment.
Next, make your way to another ranch where you can stop and shop for souvenirs such as cigars, cacao, and coffee. Take the opportunity to taste samples of the variety of goods before deciding what you like the best, approximate time spent here will be 15 minutes.
Then you're off riding once again to Guzmansito Beach, approximately 10 minutes away, where you will get a chance to ride along the beach and enjoy the views. This is a pristine, secluded beach where you can stop for more refreshments and some photos.
Make an optional stop at Martin's gift shop where guests can see local handicrafts, stones from the Dominican mines, local clothing and more.
Your ATV excursion ends with a 20-minute drive back to the ranch base and then your guide will escort you back to the cruise ship terminal.
Total ATV riding time is approximately 2.5 hours.
Different but fun the tour guides gave us history of their small town. I’d just make sure next time to bring a bandanna for the dust

This was a very fun excursion and my kids were very happy that they were able to drive their own ATV instead of riding. Lots of time on the ATV to see the scenery. Fully supported, when my ATV broke down the guides were right there to get a replacement and get me going again.

Nice day on the island - this was a great option for those of us wanting an easy excursion. The guides were fun.
This was a great excursion. They had newer ATVs that ran great. Great scenery. Stopped at the beach for a swim. Good time.
