Your adventure starts with the pickup at your hotel or pickup-point with a single truck.
After picking up other guests from nearby hotels we drive to the Flintstone Buggy Adventure Ranch which is located 2km of the center of Bavaro, this guarantees a minimum of transportation time.
After arriving at the Ranch you'll receive a short briefing in which we explain the few rules we have and how to drive your buggy.
Safety is our number one concern, so every guest has to wear a (very light) safety-helmet which you also need for the visit to our caves.
The "Flintstone Buggy Trail" has a length of 10kilometers (about 6.25miles) and takes you through a variety of vegetation and rock/hill-formations, it leads straight through the countryside and seeing some donkeys, cows, horses, sheep and pigs is guaranteed!
After about 25minutes of driving (2kilometers before the caves) we stop for some water and you can taste some real Dominican coffee and chocolate in an authentic "countryside supermarket" which is called colmado.
We stay at this colmado for about 10minutes and then continue our adventure; here the trail gets even more "rough" and "wild", and there are some spectacular views of the "cliffs" that have been formed during millions of years.
When we arrive at the cave, we park the buggies and walk to the entrance of the cave where the bar and the restrooms are.
Here you will receive a short briefing of about 5minutes about the rules in the caves.
First we enter the large cave (Fanstasy Cave) and walk almost to the end (about 300mtrs/900yards) through magnificent and huge illuminated stalactites and stalacmites accompanied with background music.
This is not a commercial cave therefor the path has bumbs and uneven parts and is not straight; minimum changes have been made so the cave keeps its natural authenticity.
During the walk our guide will tell you some interesting facts about the cave and its rock-formations. The total time for the visit of this cave is about 25minutes.
When we return and are almost at the beginning of the Fantasy Cave, we go up the stairs to Bedrock City!
Bedrock City is another group of caves that are located above the large cave, a rare combination and therefor unique!
Why the name Bedrock City? Well, here you see the villa of Fred Flintstone, the garage with the Flintstone Mobile, the Bedrock Gym, RocDonalds, an ancient ATM and the Bowl-O-Rama, based on the popular cartoon and the movie with John Goodman and Hale Berry.
The visit to Bedrock City will take about 15minutes and when we come back from this wonderful experience you can enjoy a refreshment at the bar at the entrance of the cave and sit down and relive this magical adventure.
Then we return to the ranch where there is the opportunity to buy pictures from the excursion and other souvenirs in our shop, enjoy the bar with it's typical flavoured Dominican drinks .
Enjoy your adventure!
