    Jurassic Safari Tour

    Jurassic Safari Tour Truck

    We did the Jurassic Safari Tour with RH Tours. It was a great day in the Dominican country-side. The tour was a lot of fun, and we learned a lot about the local culture.

    Some of the places we visited: the cigar museum, a typical Dominican house and farm, elementary school and got a chance to interract with the kids there, went up the mountain where we rode horses, went on the hanging bridge, swam in a river, went up the ranch where they had monkeys, crocodiles, parrots, etc, we had lunch at the ranch as well (very good and there were singers too!), and finally we stopped at macao beach for boogie boarding!

    It was a long day, but worth it.

    Price: $75 US per person. This includes all excursions mentioned above, the guide, drinks (both alcoholic and softdrinks), and lunch.

    Cocoa Fruit

    Guide showing us how chocolate is made from the fruit cacao (?). There were freshly-made chocolate and coffee products for sale afterwards. The lady at the ranch makes them. I bought some for gifts, and they are really good!

    Jurassic Tour: Canada Honda School

    Canada Honda Elementary School

    We stopped by at this school to say hi to the kids. They were so cute, they even sang the national anthem to us. The school was definitely lacking in facilities, so a lot of tourists bring school supplies for the kids. It's an awesome way to share and encourage the kids to stay in school.

    Me with our cool guide!

    He's very knowledgeable about the area, and bilingual to boot. Language school is very expensive in the Dominican, so he taught himself German, English, and French!!

    Jurassic Tour: Typical Dominican Home

    Caribbean Colors

    This was the first stop in the tour. We met the owners of the house as well - an old married couple, who made us tea and coffee. They were really nice to us, I wish I brough some gifts for them.

    Musicians at the ranch

    This group of musicians played for people taking a dip at the river, and then they moved up to the ranch to play for us while we ate lunch...are we spoiled or what?? :) They were really good!

    This safari is very educational, and you visit a beautiful beach at the end. You really get to see the schools, the culture, and also see how chocolate, coffee, and cigars are made. Best guide hands down is Jose, and his driver is Ceaser.
