Cruise the River into The Soul of The Jungle


Explore the Dominican Rainforest and its local wildlife.

Cruise the river into the Jungle is a very popular excursion and the whole excursion takes +- 4 hours.

The excursion starts with the pick up on the Bayahibe beach. After a short drive you’ll reach the river Chavon, where you board the river boat. Floating in a relaxed pace stream up through the gorge of the river. Nature is all around and everybody enjoys the panoramas and the jungle-like feeling. Drinks are served on the boat. After +- 40 minutes you’ll reach the ranch, perfectly situated on the bank of the river surrounded by hills overgrown with jungle.


After a welcome drink you can join the guided tour through the butterfly gardens, the rainforest trail and the reptile house. You will learn about some amazing Wonders of Nature ….The butterfly garden is the largest in the Dominican Republic. Our knowledgeable guides will be on hand to answer any of your butterfly questions and to share the experience of the butterfly life-cycle with you – a scene that is constantly unfolding in the breeding area.

The rainforest trail is unique. A short trail (10 minutes) leads you in the real rainforest and you get to experience the difference between a temperate forest (like in Europe and the USA) and the rainforest. Mighty trees tower above the canopy, bromeliads and orchids create a habitant for the canopy animals and lianas and strangler figs try to find their way through the jungle…. The guide will give you interesting facts about the life in the rainforest….


After the guided tour you can relax on the beautiful farm. The roof top terraces give a bird eye view of the river and the central pavilion, surrounded by cages with local animals, is a perfect place to soak up the jungle atmosphere….

After a stay of 2 hours we’ll board the river boat again and float back to the civilization. On the way back it is time for some animation. Our staff will demonstrate the Bachata and the Merengue and if you want you can join them…. 40 minutes later we’ll arrive at the ‘represa’ and the buses will be ready for the transfer back to your resort.
