4. Flintstones Buggy, Cave and Adventure in Bavaro
This amazing tour starts at a conveniently located ranch in the heart of Bavaro. All passengers will receive instructions about the safety and operation of the vehicles. Guests will be driving their own automatic buggy, following the tour guide who will lead the group. The trail has a length of 10 kilometers and takes you through a variety of vegetation and rock/hill-formations. The trail goes straight through the countryside where you can see donkeys, cows, horses, sheep, pigs and many different types of birds. After about 25 minutes of driving, the first stop is at a typical Dominican Campo, and the local “colmado” (a small grocery store) where participants can taste some real Dominican coffee. Immerse yourself in the Dominican culture as you join locals from the countryside doing their daily shopping.
Around 20 minutes later the tour will continue off-road and you'll be surrounded by simply breathtaking views. Travel past colorful houses and across the amazing landscape of banana plantations and farmland. This is the true Dominican Republic! The trail gets even more rough and wild, and there are some spectacular views of the "cliffs" that have been formed over millions of years. Then head to the “Cave of Fantasy”. First, the group will enter the cave and walk almost to the end, through magnificent and huge illuminated stalactites and stalagmites. This is not a public cave so it is accessible only on this tour. It is a 100% authentic experience! In the cave feel the bumps and uneven surface of the path. There have been few changes made to the cave, which has maintained its authenticity and beauty.
After exploring "Fantasy Cave", go up the stairs to Bedrock City, another group of caves located above the large cave, which is a rare combination. Why has it been named Bedrock City? Well, here you see the villa of Fred Flintstone, the garage with the Flintstone Mobile and much more. After around 35 minutes spent inside the cave, it will be time to go back. With the sun in your face and the wind in your hair, drive your open-air dune buggy back to the ranch. Here you will have the opportunity to buy pictures from the excursion and other souvenirs, or enjoy Dominican-style drinks at the bar.
