Go on an adventure to discover the Dominican culture and immerse yourself in the typical Dominican rural life. Explore Samana and its mountainside, while discovering the vibrant Dominican Republic culture.
The ATV Coffee Trail Cultural Tour is the perfect blend of adrenaline, nature, and culture. Drive along the Ruta del Cafe, having fun on the dirt roads driving the ATV, while discovering Samana’s countryside and Dominican culture and way of life.
The tour will take you through country roads boarded by cacao and coffee fields, spectacular views over the Samana bay, and local farms. We’ll stop at a classic mountain farm, sharing some time with a family of farmers. You’ll be able to sample some of the products they produce and visit their farm, learning about organic farming and plants.
You’ll witness the difference between Las Terrenas, a busy beach destination, and the countryside, with its clean air and slow-paced way of life.
If you want, the farmers will show you how coffee or cacao is made, from the tree to your table. You can then sip on a cup of coffee or hot cocoa.
Don’t worry, if you don’t speak Spanish, our local tour guide will translate everything for you.
Next stop is a small beach on the Samana Bay where you can take a dip and cool off for a while. On the way, we’ll pass through many fields, farms, and viewpoints. There, we can organize a picnic of fresh seafood or fish and local veggies and fruits.
Most of the trip is on dirt roads, it’s a lot of fun driving the ATV there, up and down, through bumps and holes. If you are not 100% comfortable driving an ATV or if speed is not your thing, don’t worry, you can either drive slow (more time to enjoy the view!) or you can ride with someone, most ATV can sit two people. Driving an ATV is pretty straightforward and even if it’s your first time you should get the hang of it pretty quickly.
Typically the tour lasts half a day but we can also plan a full-day tour, going deeper into the Samana mountains and lush jungle, exploring more remote beaches and villages on the way. On the way back, we can make a stop at El Limon Waterfall, only a 30-minute trek away from the main road.
Tell us how much time you have and what you want to see and experience and we’ll create a tour just for you!
Make sure to wear sunscreen and protective clothing (sunglasses and hat are a must). Bring water and snacks, there will be some shops on the way too if you need to buy anything. And most importantly, don’t forget to bring your camera, if you have a GoPro you can attach it to the ATV and you’ll have a perfect video of your trip to Samana’s countryside.
