A panoramic drive brings you to some of Punta Cana's most popular places for purchasing locally-made crafts.

Your first stop involves a guided tour of a cigar-making facility. Watching skilled cigar-makers undertaking their craft is quite fascinating. You can even participate in a cigar tasting if you wish.

Then, you're off to the Chocolate Museum to see the cocoa plant and understand the chocolate-making process from bean to bar. Taste different types of chocolate and learn why the Dominican Republic is one of the top producers of organic cocoa beans in the world.

Next up is an opportunity to taste some of the finest Dominican rums. Learning about sugar cane production, harvest, production and distillation techniques sheds an entirely different light on one of the world's favorite alcoholic beverages.

Coffee-roasting is also an important cultural element of the Dominican Republic. You will taste different types of local coffee before enjoying some free time to browse the gift shop or just relax at a local café (at your own expense). Board the bus and head off to La Mona -- an oceanfront restaurant located on the paradisiac Juanillo Beach. A welcome beverage and a variety of Dominican snacks offer you a taste of the local gastronomy, while you relax and take in the magnificent view of the Caribbean Sea.

It's a short ride back to the tender pier from here.

Notes:

Wear comfortable walking shoes.
