Drive your own Dune Buggy on various terrains including two beaches, through the countryside and streams. You'll also have the chance to shop for unique souvenirs and enjoy some refreshments throughout this Buggy Excursion.

Start this great Puerto Plata Shore Excursion by meeting with your friendly guide just outside your Amber Cove Puerto Plata cruise ship pier. Climb aboard comfortable transportation for a short, 5-minute, ride to the Dune Buggy Excursion base camp. The buggy shore excursion camp is located on a private ranch, complete with lush, tropical vegetation, fun trails, and small streams!

Once you arrive, you will be matched up with your Buggy. You will be given brief instructions, but these off-road vehicles are very simple to drive. In fact, beginners are welcome and there's no license required to drive a buggy on this shore excursion. Also, the price is the same for one, or two riders so great for couples, automatic transmission buggies are also available (limited). Excursion prices are per buggy, please note there are also available family buggies that can hold up to 4 people, please contact customer service to find out availability and to get a quote.

Once you're on your buggy it's time to follow the guide through the ranch, past little houses, and farms you'll see in the countryside. You'll ride for about 15 minutes to Teco's Beach and then stop for a dip in the ocean if you wish or enjoy the view and a refreshment. Your shore excursion guide will have both cold bottled water and sodas available.

Next, you'll head to another ranch where you can stop, taste, and shop, if you'd like, for cigars, cacao, and coffee. You'll spend 15 minutes at this location.

Then you're off to a 10-minute ride to Guzmansito Beach and ride your all-terrain vehicle along the beach, enjoying the spectacular views.

Then it will be time to make an optional stop at Martin's gift shop where guests can see local handicrafts, stones from the Dominican mines, local clothing styles, and all for purchase if you'd like.

Your Puerto Plata  Dune Buggy Excursion ends with a 20-minute drive back to the Dune Buggy Excursion camp. Your guide will then take you back to the Amber Cove Puerto Plata cruise ship terminal, just a 5-minute ride away. The total dune buggy riding time is approximately 2 hours.

My husband and 15 year old teen daughter did this excursion and it was awesome! The company is literally five minutes away from the port so we felt assured that we would make it back in time. They do not have lockers but I felt comfortable leaving my things with everyone else’s in the common area while we went riding the dune buggies. I recommend you wear water shoes or crocs and comfortable clothes as you will get wet and dirty. The staff are amazing and ensured that we Got our moneys worth. It was very easy to drive the dune buggies. The photographer captures every moment and every turn during the excursion and you can purchase a package and a video and it will be sent to you within a few days. I am so glad we decided to purchase it because the pictures came out amazing. I highly recommend this excursion!

This was the best excursion I have taken thus far while cruising. We got lucky and were the only ones who had booked at the time we were going and had the guide and photographer to ourselves. They were both WONDERFUL. So nice and friendly. They made this a once-in-a-lifetime experience in such a beautiful, beautiful place. Excursion is exactly as described. We were able to get 100+ photos and videos for a GREAT price (the large amount of photos and videos could have been because we were the only ones). If you choose this excursion, you will not regret it.

This was a fun trip for me and my 19 year old son. I let him drive, and I tried to take pictures. They take you on a path that crosses a river a few times. Take it at speed, and you will get soaked, which we did. Then you drive along the road for awhile and stop at a stand where they make cigars. If you smoke, you can also try them out. From there we headed to a beach where we could wash the dust and mud off. Then you back track across the river (which we took slower this time) back to their garage. Do not take anything with you that cannot get wet. I bought a plastic phone protector from them, and that was the best $5 I have ever spent. They also sell bandanas to keep out the dust, which you will need. We also wish we had worn water shoes as our shoes got soaked. We also needed to get a shower when we got back to our ship. Was a fun time.

OUR GUIDE WAS THE BEST! he allowed us to just barrel through all the puddles. We had the best time.iIT RAINED ALL DAY THAT DAY WHICH MADE MIT EVEN BETTER.

MY ONLY REGRET WAS OUR GUIDE TOOK A VIDEO ON HIS PHONE AND WE CANT GET THEM!SO IF ANYONE FROM THE SHOP READS THIS CAN WE GET THE VIDEO? WE WERE THERE ON APRIL 21, THE FIRST GROUP 8 AM. WE ENDED UP GOING OUT WITH JUST TWO BUGGIES.

We had a great time on this excursion and it was well worth it. Was a little nervous once we had to walk out the gate from the cruise port which was about 15 minutes to meet the the company, however the drive was so nice and welcoming. Once we got to the destination, they got us ready and gave us instructions…then we were off. I feel bad I don’t remember our tour guides or photographer’s name but they were all awesome fellas. I didn’t time it because we were having so much fun, but it felt like 2 hours plus. Drove down unpaved roads and through mud puddles, so if you don’t want to get dirty this is not for you, but you only live once so live in the moment. Watching how they make cigars was interesting and you even get to smoke them if you want and they share a taste of their special drink. We finally ended up at the beach where we could see our cruise ship, simply breathtaking. We purchased pictures they took of us during the excursion and they came out beautiful. Would definitely do this excursion again.

This was the best excursion we did on our recent trip that included Bahamas, Dominican Republic and Grand Turk. It is definitely for the adventure seeker. My only complaint was it was a little tricky to find the pickup destination. You have to leave the security gate outside of the port, which was a little bit of a walk. The sidewalks were easy to follow though, just keep going until you get outside the main gate and the trucks are waiting for you there along with some other excursions. We didn't know what to expect and were a little unsure on what to wear and what to take with us. You will want closed toe shoes. My husband and I wore Keens that worked perfectly! Your shoes will get wet and muddy, so don't wear anything white and/or new! This goes for clothes as well. Old black attire is preferred. We were up in the air on whether to take our back packs, sunglasses, wallets, phones, etc...I do not recommend taking any of those things unless you have a Dry Bag! The staff was excellent! I felt very safe and felt they cared about our safety as well. You will ride on moderately trafficked roads, but the buggies are able to keep up with traffic and many times even exceed traffic flow. The majority of roads in the Dominican are unpaved and very rough! It was eye opening to travel through the back roads and see the civilian life of a 3rd world country. It's not for the faint at heart to see the living conditions, children at school and skinny animals roaming the streets. The views at the top of the mountain were breathtaking. This is where scenes from Jurassic Park were filmed. You will go through about 5-6 "mud holes" and it's up to you at what speed you want to barrel through! We went full throttle and it was thrilling! I can't say enough good things about our guides, especially Darlin, "The Paparazzi"! He travels along with the group stopping to take pictures and videos that are available for purchase at the end, if you want. He was very funny and engaging at the stops. We did purchase the photos and videos for what we felt was a fair cost and glad we did! I definitely recommend this for all of the adventure and thrill seekers!

We always book our excursions outside of the cruise lines. This was our first visit to Amber Cove. We have two teenage boys', so we are looking for things adventurous. The buggy tour was amazing. We had a blast. It was very well managed and the buggys were like new. Very well maintained. We got to blast thru mud and rode for three hours. The tour guides were amazing. They also have a camera guy follow you and offer a video and great photos at the end of the tour. A very reasonable tour and great value.

We had so much fun! The pick up location had us worried because we needed to walk all the way out of the port. The tour totally made up for the walk! We went though huge puddles of water and mud and got soaked. Our guide was awesome. We did 1 buggy and switched drivers half way through. We saw beautiful views of the country. We got to see how cigars were made. I would recommend bringing plenty of cash or else there is an 18% fee for card. The photo package is worth it! We got over 200 photos and a video. Also bring towels and dry clothes.

We 100% recommend excursions with Marysol Tours and photography by Paparazzi Productions! We showed up in Amber Cove and we were picked up by our super friendly tour guide, Mr. Caliente!! He took us on a quick (under 5 minute) drive to where we took off on the buggy’s. After paying the remaining balance for our tour, we were fitted into our safety helmets and goggles. We jumped into our buggy’s and started our tour around the beautiful area including mountains, beaches, rivers we crossed and splashed through, met some animals, smoked a local cigar (and saw some hand rolled!), tried some local coffee and swam in the ocean! Caliente was amazing and funny, and Coly our photographer was amazing! He caught all the angles of our buggy adventure and sent us a full video of our experience from start to finish with music added! I couldn’t recommend these two and the company enough!
