Details

Day 1

Welcome to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic – the party starts now!

Welcome to Punta Cana, a coastal town known for its sugar-white sand beaches and crystal clear water. This area of the DR features lavish resorts, adventure activities, 30 miles of beach, and killer nightlife. Upon arrival, take your private transfer to your all-inclusive resort where you can indulge in food, drinks, relaxation, and fun! You’ll have the rest of the day and night to get settled on this beachfront property, allowing you to explore and shift into vacation mode. Grab a meal at one of the resort’s nine restaurants, head straight to the beach, or start your getaway with a frozen drink in one of the adults-only pools. Put your swimsuit on and get your Caribbean vacation started!

Day 2

Discover the hidden mysteries in the DR’s jungle on a Monkeyland plantation and safari tour

Good morning! We hope you had a great first night in Punta Cana. Today, you’ll be whisked away to Monkeyland, located deep in the jungle, for a safari ride through a local coffee and cacao plantation. Here, you’ll learn how local farmers grow organic coffee and cacao while you sample local coffee and hot chocolate. Next, you’ll visit the monkey sanctuary and its botanical gardens where you’ll learn about the squirrel monkey. You’ll have the chance to see and feed 20 monkeys that have been raised on site. Get to know the island’s colorful native plants and flowers at the habitat's botanical garden, as you marvel at the stunning mountain views. When you return to the resort, enjoy the beach cabanas, the pool loungers, and that Caribbean sun!

Day 3

Swing high above the ground at Round Mountain and ride horses along Limon Beach

Rise and shine, adventurers! We have some great activities in store for you today! After breakfast, you’ll be taken to Montaña Redonda, aka Round Mountain, a hilltop overlook with 360-degree views of the coast and mountains. This iconic spot is known for its swing rides that create the perfect backdrop for social media pictures and videos. Enjoy the thrill of swinging 1,000 feet above the ground and have your friends capture this exhilarating moment. Here, we’ll also enjoy lunch at the local restaurant with views that simply can’t be beat. There is no better way to spend a day in this Caribbean paradise, so make sure your camera/phone batteries are charged and ready to go!

Day 4

Journey to Saona Island and enjoy the pristine sands and crystal clear waters

Another day in paradise means another day of idyllic beaches and island adventures. Today, you’ll travel to one of the most beautiful places in the DR – Saona Island. Part of the East National Park, this pristine paradise is known for its palm-fringed beaches, mangroves, and coral reefs. You’ll get to spend the entire day here, floating in the shallow waters, enjoying the tropical landscape, and soaking up that Caribbean sun. During this full-day tour, you’ll see various parts of the island and stop for a traditional Dominican lunch along the way. When you return from your journey, freshen up and enjoy one final meal with your group. Cheers to a stellar getaway!

Day 5

Soak in the views before heading home

After an incredible four nights at this all-inclusive heaven, it’s time to pack up and hit the road. Enjoy one final meal and a few more hours in the sun before taking your private transfer to the airport for departure. Scroll through that camera roll while waiting for takeoff and reflect on all the great memories you made with friends, new and old. We hope you had a blast and will travel with us again soon!
