“MotoCaribe was founded in 2007 on a simple premise that guides all we do today: to offer all riders worldwide the greatest value on the planet in supported, exotic motorcycle tours, period.
We do much more than ride. We adventure.”
-Robert Cooper, Founder
Forget the boring Americanized vacation to a resort, looking at the same beach all week. THIS is the full Dominican riding experience. The pineapple plantations, coconut groves, crashing ocean waves, high mountain vistas and kids in school uniforms waving and shouting “Hola!”—that is what you will get.
This tour starts in the tropical mountain town of Jarabacoa (“ha dah bah COH ah”), spends a day touring the central mountains, winds through the road we call “The Tail of the Iguana”, along the oceanfront north coast to the Samana peninsula, one of the most tropical regions in the Caribbean.
We spend a day exploring the peninsula, a day relaxing on a breathtaking beach enjoying lobster lunch, then travel back through the northern range and finish with a day riding some of the most amazing mountain roads on the planet.
