After pickup outside of the Cruiseline Terminal, Amber Cove, you'll be driven 10 minutes to Rancho Los Cacaos. Here, the guides will provide you with brief instructions and will help you climb your horse to make you comfortable and safe. At the beginning, the guides will take you to the arena which is just near the main building and is where you can practice riding your horse. Then, just let the horses take you for a ride through the farm and discover the Dominican countryside. The path starts by the lagoon and continues aligned by palms and fruit trees. It then crosses a small stream where you will get wild in the jungle for awhile.
You can only wonder what is the meaning of the rock painting along the path. The guides will tell you interesting stories about original population of Hispaniola, also called Tainos. After getting up the hill you will leave your horse for a while so you can walk to the top and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Then you will climb onto your horse again and return to the ranch. You will take a refreshing break and then be driven to Rancho Don Fernando.
From the main gate, you will pass a eucalyptus alley up to the main cottage. After a short welcome by the guide, you will see a couple of facilities of local ranches hidden under the trees. Enjoy lots of greenery and nice views of the scenery of the Dominican countryside. You will watch a dance exhibition or learn how to dance, while listening to the live music of bachata and merengue. Then, the guide will take you on a walk on the path leading through the beautiful and peaceful park, with typical exotic fruit trees, palms and spices. Along the path partially hidden in the shadow of palms, you will pass by a big bird cage, fish pond and small zoo. The last stop on your walk will be the Rum Museum where you can taste different flavors of the famous Dominican Brugal Rum. Then you will return to the main cottage and be driven back to your cruise ship.
