Anyone interested in getting a closer look at the Dominican Republic should embark on the Super Truck Safari Tour. This round-trip excursion will take families away from the more popular tourist areas and into the local countryside where there are a variety of rural villages and ranches. The trucks make a number of stops during the 10 hour trip, giving travelers plenty of opportunities to experience the culture and lifestyle of the local inhabitants. One of these stops is at the Basilica de Higuey, a famous church that is dedicated to the patron saint of the country. Tourists will also have a chance to stop at two ranches where they can learn about some of the most common products that are grown in the area like tobacco, coffee and cocoa. Knowledgeable tour guides will provide information about the Dominican culture and customs, explaining the history of the country and the products that have been cultivated there. Coffee lovers will want to try a cup of freshly-brewed coffee from locally grown beans, and guests can even walk through some of the fields where these beans are grown. Visitors can ride horses around the ranches before lunchtime when they will be served a buffet consisting of delicious Dominican food. The last stop before heading back is Macao beach where kids can play in the waves while their parents relax and enjoy the beautiful views from the sand. When it is time to head back, families will be transported to their hotel and dropped off at the lobby.
