GAVA Hostel outings are diverse and surprising. Would you like to swim with dolphins, learn how cigars are made or visit the unspoilt beach of Macao in buggies? Here you can see those most requested and choose yours. We'll visit Bávaro's parks, where we'll spend a day together surrounded by vegetation and animals that we can interact with, like sea lions, multicoloured birds, manta rays, and even dolphins. Take an exciting swim with them and enjoy the strange feeling of their skin! We'll be picked up by amazing 4x4 trucks which will bring us, in the hands of expert guides, around the reality of Dominican life. We'll start with a visit to the Hacienda, where we can enjoy a pleasurable horseback ride through one of the country's largest cattle ranches. We'll drive funny and fantastic vehicles for a day of unforgettable adventure. An engine, a steering wheel, a metal body and the desire to have a good time is all you'll need for this outing.


Cancelled, modified or in case of no-show, 100 percent of the total price of the reservation will be charged. Notice of cancellation must be given, please inform us of a cancellation so we may give another guest an opportunity to request accommodation.
