A combo of two fun shore excursion activities! Fly across the lush jungle on 8 zip lines and take a horseback ride through the countryside. Top it off with a local lunch!
You'll meet your Puerto Plata shore excursion guide outside your Taino Bay cruise terminal and be driven in air-conditioned comfort to the park, about 20 to 25 minutes away. Enjoy the countryside as you go. At the park, you'll be welcomed and given instructions for your zip line activity. Once in your harness and helmet, you're off on an adrenaline-filled adventure flying over the treetops. The 8 zip lines are ACCT certified and run over 7,900 feet on double galvanized steel cables. They're different heights and lengths with the longest being 2460 feet. Woohoo! There is some hiking and some climbing steps involved so you need to be able to do moderate exercise. The course takes approximately 1.5 hours long. This course doesn't require you to use your gloved hand as a brake either so just enjoy the ride! Fun for all ages and beginners and experts alike.
The second excursion activity is horseback riding which is great for beginners as the horses only walk the trails, and no trotting or galloping is allowed. You'll be assigned a horse that's appropriate for your size and skill level. Riding instructions will be given before you set off so that you can be comfortable and enjoy the ride. You'll follow your guide past local farms and see the crops they grow like mango, sour soup, papaya, lime, orange, and palm trees. They raise cows, pigs, and chickens as well as other livestock. Passing small towns, you can see the local daily life of the Dominicans. The ride is about 45 minutes and all horses take single riders only unless it's a child with a parent (weight restrictions might apply, please review them before you book).
Back at the excursion base camp, you can enjoy local favorites from the delicious buffet. Choose from home-cooked dishes of rice, beans, chicken or beef, fried sweet potatoes and yucca, vegetables, tropical fruits, and more. After your lunch, you can wander the botanical gardens and enjoy the native flora. Bring your camera for some great photo opportunities on this action-filled excursion. Your transportation will return you to your Taino Bay cruise terminal located in downtown Puerto Plata at the end of the shore excursion adventure.
