After checking into our rooms, we will transport to our Discovery Diving Excursion for some scuba action. Followed up by beachfront dinner at Kite beach in Cabarete.

Day Four: Surfing

What Caribbean vacation package would be complete without spending time on the beach? On Day Four, we will be at what is known as the “adventure sports capital of the Caribbean,” Cabarete. Here, we will spend our morning learning the king of watersports, surfing. Afterwhich, we will do some coastal cliff jumping into the clear, blue Atlantic Ocean. When night falls, we will go the main beach in Cabarete for dinner and a night out. Party Big Swings Style!!

Day Five: Swimming Holes and World’s Best Beaches

Spend the day exploring natural swimming holes. Laguna Dudu has 40-foot cliff jumps and zip lines that  propel you into the refreshing cool waters of the lagoon. This place is absolutely amazing! After that, we explore the remarkable Playa Grande.

Laguna Dudu Cliffs and turquoise waters.

Day Six: River SUP

River SUP combines skills from canoe paddling, surfing, and kayaking. The Jamao and Yascia Rivers offer class I and class II whitewater conditions which makes it a great place to try out how awesome river SUP is! A sight to behold, the spring fed rivers flow past lush Dominican countryside.

During our day on the river, we will stop to take breaks, do some cliff-jumping, put up a rope swing, and do a few multiple runs of some awesome rapids.

Day Seven: Canyoneering

Canyoneering deep in the jungles of the Dominican Republic.


The Canyon of Rio Blanco offers some of the best canyoneering in the Western Hemisphere. Here we have seven different tours to choose from depending on water levels. Each part of the canyon offers rappelling and unique cliff jumping. No adventure week would be complete without rappelling and  jumping down waterfalls. At nightfall, we will celebrate our week at the Finca Taino.

Day Eight: Adios Amigos

Depending on the departure time from Santiago we will pack up and say good-bye to the Dominican Republic.
