Day 1: After breakfast, our van takes you to Camp Moto, where you’ll get introduced to your Suzuki V-Strom 650 for the week. After making adjustments and getting used to the bike, your guide will lead you through the local mountain roads to waterfalls and the incredible vistas of the tropical Dominican Alps with lunch, snacks and photo-ops along the way. Riding your bike back to the resort hotel, it’s time to relax around the pool and catch up on the day’s happenings before the group dinner.
Day 2: After breakfast and riders’ meeting, we ride out to the Samana Peninsula. You’ll experience the thrills of “The Tail of the Iguana” mountain road with an amazing vista stop. Then plunging down to a road that for miles follows along the deep blue Atlantic Ocean, we stop for lunch on a nearly deserted beach, accessed by a coral road, where you can take a dip into that clear ocean. We continue riding through Paradise, checking into your beautiful tropical beach front resort, and finishing the day with a refreshing pool or ocean swim and unwinding with our newly-made friends and companions before a terrific dinner buffet.
Day 3: After breakfast and riders’ meeting, get ready for a day of great exploration. You’ll ride to the end-of-the-road-in-Paradise village of Las Galeras, then back on the road to explore the caves and vistas of Boca del Diablo, a spirited mountain road ride then delivers you to the next stop, a horseback ride to the Salto El Limon deep forest waterfall, ride through the beach town of Las Terrenas, and finish with the mountain road to Sanchez on the way back to your resort. In MotoCaribe-style, you’ll enjoy great local food and photo-ops along the way. The day ends with your-form-of-relaxation and a buffet dinner.
Day 4: An optional “rise and shine” ride (6 a.m.) is followed by an afternoon van excursion to one of the most beautiful, idyllic beaches on the planet, hidden by thousands of coconut palms. We set up camp for you with shade tents, chairs, coolers full of your favorite beverages, beach toys, snorkel gear, and just relax, Caribbean-style. Lunch will be freshly grilled seafood with all the trimmings, prepared beachside. We head back to the resort, where we finish the evening with a beach bonfire after dinner.
Day 5: After breakfast and riders’ meeting, as you ride back to Jarabacoa, we stop at the primordial crystal clear freshwater cave spring of Lago Azul to swim, have lunch at a local French restaurant next to the famous Laguna GriGri in Rio San Juan, ride along the coast, and return to our base resort via “The Tail of the Iguana,” where you’ll have time to relax before the dinner in the riverside restaurant awaits us.
Day 6: Today you’ll have the choice of two options:
Option 1: “The Loop” ride down the mountain road from Jarabacoa to the Autopista Duarte to the high valley town of Constanza, the breadbasket of the Dominican Republic, returning to Jarabacoa on a rugged mountain hard-packed road with spectacular vistas and stops along the way.
Option 2: A Van Excursion of Culture and Natural Adventure – A tour of an organic coffee processing plant, A trip to Santiago for a tour of the Centro Leon Cultural Museum, La Aurora authentic cigar rolling factory on the Museum grounds, Lunch adjacent to the Monument in downtown Santiago, A trip to the 27 Falls of Rio Damajagua, a natural water adventure park You’ll ride your bike back to Camp Moto and say goodbye to it that evening. Our Special Farwell Dinner together is in Jarabacoa which on Saturday night is alive and hopping, just you wait and see! What a way to end a week in the Dominican Republic. Not Kansas, that’s for sure!
Day 7: We say our ‘hasta luego’ as our van takes you to the Santiago International Airport for your departing flights, knowing you’ll be back, and we’ll be looking forward to your return!
