On the way to the plantation, you will stop at an elementary school and learn a bit about the Dominican school system. (You don’t tour the school inside in this excursion, but you can arrange to give a donation directly to the director of the school if you prepare ahead of time and bring the stuff with you).
Once arrived at the local plantation you will visit first a typical Dominican house, learn about when it was built and spend some time with the welcoming and
modest family that lives there. The guide will explain how they live and how they prepare their meals on a firewood stove. Next, you will start the plantation tour. It presents 500 square meters of different plants, especially coffee and cocoa, besides tobacco, pineapple, sugarcane, papaya, plantains, corn, and others.

Afterward, you will head back to Paraiso Ranch, in the Anamuya Mountain, where you will enjoy a typical Dominican lunch and relax.
Last stop – Macao Beach! A visit to Macao Beach is mandatory! Enjoy a spectacular view and relax in the sun before heading back to your hotel. You can swim as well but in the case be already in your swimsuit, because there is no place to change at the beach.
