Road to La Estancia
When travelling, I try to make it my prerogative to do something that challenges me or gives me a different experience of the city or town I’m visiting. For my recent trip to Dominican Republic, it was dune buggying on the local route through the mud puddles of La Estancia. Let me just say this was not my idea! At first I was very reluctant to try it out.
Since our group of friends on vacation was an equal number of boys and girls, we had to choose a unisex activity. What says new experience than racing through narrow alleys by the ocean covered in mud!
Dune Buggying In the Dominican
I have to say, I have never experienced anything like dune buggying ever before and being covered in cold mud in 30 degrees humidity. It's an odd fun but sticky situation. The buggy are a bit tough to operate if you don't have arm strength like me. In fact, my friend tried to drive and she ran right into a palm tree! Haha
All in all it was an amazing experience and I would definitely do it again. My only advice to anyone looking to try this on vacation, is to make sure your have sunglasses or some sort of bandana to keep your face covered!
I would definitely recommend this to anyone going on vacation!!
