The ranch at LUNABERG ECO TOUR, is located in the middle of a tropical jungle, and constructed of natural materials, keeping the spirit of yoga as a philosophy. Our guests get to know our gentle friends, our horses, as a means of transport to beautiful ecological sites and to natural sites of spiritual power.
Our eco-tour includes a visit to a mangrove lagoon forest and then a small fishing village, all filled with beautiful wildlife and many species of tropical birds. We ride horses on the beach, refreshed by the trade winds, and we admire the wealth of seashells and white sand.
A hearty lunch is prepared in the traditional Dominican style over a fire or fogón After lunch, we ride back into the mountains to experience an unforgettable view of the Atlantic, a turquoise melting to deep iridescent blue as sunlight flirts with the clouds. We, meanwhile enjoy seasonal fruits such as mangos, guanabanas, grapefruits, pineapple, guavas, passion fruits or oranges.
After our excursion to the mountains, we return to our wood and stone built ranch to relax and to enjoy coffee, while allowing the song of the birds and the beauty of the flowers to massage our worries away.
We finish the day with a swim in our mineral water pool with a waterfall in which we can enjoy the cool freshness of nature. After our swim, we ride back through the rain forest, passing seven winding streams until we reach the fishing village from where you will be transported back to your hotel.
There you can rest and feel content physically, mentally and emotionally after an incredible day.
Also we have the same full-day adventure offer without horse riding! We walk along the mangroves and step upstream to the ranch, about a half hour’s walk!
We recommend long trousers, shoes, a hat, and a swimming suit, as well as camera.
We also offer a full-week stay here on the North Coast. We will arrange accommodation at a beachfront hotel in Cabarete which includes breakfast. Every other day, we will pick you up and bring you to several ECO destinations. You will each be treated as an individual client.

We have marked one day during which we will lead you all over the north coast to SOSUA or PUERTO PLATA to the shopping opportunities available there, as well as the sightseeing attractions of both cities.
