Top 10 Things you NEED to do in Punta Cana in 2023!

Visit Punta Cana with adventure in Mind!


Hey everyone, my name is Margaret, and I am the owner of BWM Travel Agency!  During my time as a travel agent and even before becoming a travel agent, I have ALWAYS loved to travel!  I have been a Travel Agent since 2019. As a full-service travel agent, I have not only been able to Book exciting vacations but also take exciting vacations. I decided to start sharing not only my experiences but the experiences of my clients as well on my new Blog! Dominican Republic has been one of the destinations where I opted for adventure and so did my clients. 


Punta Cana, Dominican Republic is one of the most traveled tourist attractions in the Dominican Republic. If you are planning a trip to Punta Cana, you do NOT want to miss out on the culture, excitement, water action, or adventure that Punta Cana has to offer you. During my visits to the Dominican Republic (Punta Cana & Puerto Plata) and the planning for my clients, I was amazed at all the activities they had to offer snorkeling, caves, ziplining, coffee tours, ATV, and more!

#10 Half-Day Adventure: 4x4 ATV, Water Cave, and Dominican Culture at Punta Cana

This experience combined several activities into one. I was picked up from the Riu República in Punta Cana on time! The driver was very pleasant and there were a few other people already on the shuttle from other resorts a little farther from us! On the ride, I enjoyed the views of Punta Cana until we arrived at our 1st destination!

Adventure Dominican Rally - New Jersey Travel Agent

Here we were greeted by staff we were able to buy bandanas to cover our face while riding the ATVs, personalized items, use restrooms as well as fill out the necessary forms letting us know any Risks involved with the activities.

We were assigned a Tour Guide Charlie! He was funny and informative and made sure we understood the rules before we left for the activities. We also had a lesson on how to operate our ATV. 

It's time for take-off!!! We drove about 7- 10 minutes through a forest admiring the culture of the communities around we ended up at a local farm.

Taste coffee, chocolate, tea, and rum! Shopping!

What a time we had here I am not sure if the owner was a comedian first but he sure was FUNNY! As we learned about these local items and tasted the coffee, chocolate, tea, and rum (Mamajuana). We were able to purchase some of the items we enjoyed taking home and sharing with our families.

Back on to the ATV and ride to the next location!

Up Next the CAVES if you were bold enough you could jump in. The locals rented life jackets out front for $2 if you wanted to use one. The cave was filled with tourists taking that exciting plunge into the around 20 feet deep waters. I knew my limits and only took pictures on the rocks. This was an amazing experience, but it's not recommended to jump if you cannot swim!

Lets RIDE!!!

Macao Beach was the final stop. We enjoyed the beautiful beach and were able to purchase food and drinks. My choice was chicken wings and French fries with a pina colada! We stayed at this beach for about an hour or more chatting with newfound friends and enjoying the beach setting. After everyone was done eating, we then returned to our ATV and drove back to base!

This experience was amazing it was a great activity to do early and get back to the resort to prepare for the night. Be careful of any children while riding through the island. The locals on the beach will also offer to take your photo with their birds and monkeys they will charge you a fee to do it.
