This short video was taken during a speedboat ride between Punta Rucia and Cayo Paraiso (Paradise Island) in November 2012.
The 20 minute journey was a bumpy one; we felt every wave as we were tossed around the boat, bouncing up and down in our seats. Some of the passengers were too afraid to sit in their seats and preferred instead to cower on the floor between the seats!
The rough ride was certainly justified when we arrived at the beautiful sand bar of Cayo Paraiso!
Rancho Lorilar is a well established Canadian owned ranch in the Dominican Republic offering half day, full day and private riding for riders of all experience. It does not matter whether you have never ridden a horse, if you are an experienced rider or somewhere in between - we will have a horse that will be suitable for you.
Your safety is our primary concern, safety helmets are provided as standard, you will recieve a safety briefing and riding instructions before you commence your riding adventure.
This is probably the best way to see the real Dominican Republic!
