We had wanted to go Ziplining, but I required a pair of close-toed shoes for that, and neglected to pack any... so off to the plaza to drop over $50 for shoes.... yes, they're nice and I'll wear them again.... but a little pricey... So we went Ziplining!!! What a blast! Our drivers name was Manuel, and man, can he drive and navigate those bumpy, windy roads!! Kudos to him! Our tour rep was Pedro..he was great! He told us information on the area and the people on our drive to the mountains for Ziplining! He was very friendly and full of knowledge! They take great care in doing the ziplining as far as safety and procedures are concerned... You really should check out the website for it to see the video and pictures, but it's a lot of fun, and really safe!.. try to go in the morning though, as the afternoon would get pretty hot out there.. The drive through the country side and the small towns was interesting as well.. and Pedro would tell us about all the different vegetation, and we even tried unripened, or not dried, coacoa beans!... All Hail chocolate!! All in all it was a nice break, good to get away from the resort for a bit. we hear the Bavaro Runners Safari Adventure is a good tour as well... maybe next time!??!

The only off-resort organized tour we elected to do during this visit to the DR was the Zip-Line Adventure Tour, which was a blast! It is offered from Paraiso twice per week, Wednesday and Friday mornings, and costs $89 US each. We booked it through our SunQuest rep. Pick-up was an early 7:40am and we didnít get back until close to 2pm. It took some time to collect others on the tour and drop them off, plus the zip line itself is inland toward Santiago. Franklin, our guide, was great and his English was excellent. All of the staff was very professional and we felt safe at all times. We had never zip-lined before, but it wasnít a problem. There was a guy selling a video of the whole experience, but we elected not to buy. I think he charged $25 or $39 US. You could also buy a beer or pop for a reasonable amount of money at the last platform, which is where the office is located, and I was really looking forward to it! There were eight or nine lines, some faster or longer than others, but all were fun. I would do it again, for sure. This one ranks up with the jungle safari tour that we did on a previous visit, which I would also recommend.

This was an awesome zipline adventure. Other people were concerned with storied that they had heard about these and I am an extra paranoid person. Everything was done well and we were trained on safety before we got near the ziplines. I would recommend this one to anyone. Lots of people from different ages were with our group and we agreed it was a great time.

We did the zip lining offered with Bavaro tours. This was AMAZING! There is a bus that comes to pick you up, then goes to other resorts to pick up other people for your tour. The ziplining is held up in the mountains so it's about 1.5hrs or so to drive up there. It's great to go through the communities and farmland and see how the locals live. I would absolutely recommend this tour. The employees are VERY knowledgeable and very reassuring. One person who went with us was terrified of heights, but they did a great job talking to her and calming her down so that she could get the confidence to do the ziplining which was very rewarding. Soon there will be longer ziplines to go on in the next few months, so I can't wait to go back!

This was so much fun! I was a little scared at first but after the first platform it was a breeze. The staff really know what they are doing, no worries in that department at all. I will do this tour again the next I am in Punta Cana; it is well worth the money and a great experience. Actually we were told after the tour that they are looking into adding more platforms, higher and longerÖcanít wait!

We went on the Bavaro Zipline Adventure It was awesome. They were very safe and nice. Our guide that rode the bus with us to the Zip line place was named Stevenson. He gave lots of information and helped reassure the little ones that were going on the zip line that it was very safe.
