Visit a local home and meet the people who live on the rural north coast, a lifestyle little changed from a hundred years ago.

We had a great time on this tour...

We had a great time on this tour! Our tour guide Yoky, and driver Jose, were both awesome. Yoky truly made this day fun. He told us a lot of info and history on the area, but his sense of humor was the best. I will never drive by cows again without thinking oh there's a salami plantation lol Lunch was amazing, and the chicken was soooo yummy. The entire day was great from going to the school, plantation, boogie boarding and the river. The music and free flowing drinks were also great. I highly recommend this tour :

If you're up for a bumpy ride, this tour is very nice. Touristy, yes, but you get to see the countryside, meet the people and actually learn something. Great guide. Boogieboarding was fun but listen to the instructions given. Beware of strong rumdrinks ;-)
Although the guides were awesome...

Although the guides were awesome, this whole tour felt very fake. They take you to an authentic Dominican household and despite it being in a remote location and there being plenty of families around to greet us, it all seems staged. It is a perfectly placed homestead in the middle of what's essentially a parking lot for the many there were 3 there at the same time as us tour buses that are there at any given time. The whole tour is a well oiled machine and your can tell they do this day in and day out the exact same way. The lunch was delicious!! But again, it felt very touristy. They then took us to a beautiful beach to round out the day. Was I bored throughout the day? No. Was it worth 100? No. Would I do it again? No.
