Take in the local sights, tastes and sounds on this countryside experience tour. Begin your land expedition in an open-air safari truck, where you’ll relax and enjoy scenes emblematic of rural life for everyday Dominicans. Visit the CORAZÓN A CORAZÓN Foundation, a local organization that trains young people from nearby local villages in the arts. Moving on, you’ll taste freshly cut sugar cane right from the fields and learn about the traditional ways of living and working in a batey village — a shanty town mainly for sugarcane cutters. From there, you’ll pass through the La Ceijas batey, close to the local children’s school. After crossing through a small rain forest and passing by local Dominican houses , you will arrive at a quintessential Dominican countryside ranch, where you can purchase local souvenir jewelry made with amber or larimar, a rare blue stone only found in the DR. Then, in the beautiful surroundings of La Estancia Golf Club, you will visit Vega Fina for an exciting tour of the cigar world. Learn all the processes and techniques of the production of handmade cigars, from the planting of tobacco in the fields to the packaging of a finished cigar. Finally, drive through the streets of La Romana and its Central Park, witnessing the day-to-day life of the locals. When your tour is over, you’ll head back to the pier.
