When most people think of Punta Cana, the first thing that comes to mind is a coastline lined with palm trees with beachfront all-inclusive resorts. What most visitors don’t know is that on the north side of Punta Cana you’ll find quiet beaches with little to no development where nature lovers head to experience the Caribbean in its natural splendor, one of the best and most romantic ways to experience it is by horseback. Whether you’re honeymooning or on a family vacation, horseback riding may be one of the highlights of your vacation. The most romantic horseback riding tours are on the beach, but those that love the green lush countryside and wish to have a cultural experience will find a few tours that offer it. There are various tours offering horseback riding tours that pack on a variety of experiences that may include riding through the countryside, along rivers, stop at sugar, cocoa, and coffee plantations (with samples), delicious food and some even include ziplining.
