Tanama Jungle Ranch opened July 1st in Punta Cana, DR. The ranch will offer porting cruise passengers and tourists of Punta Cana an opportunity to experience the beautiful nature of the surrounding area. Visitors to the Dominican Republic should check this new tourist attraction.
Weekly more than 60.000 tourists visit Punta Cana and the eastern part of the Dominican Republic. La Romana, just west of Punta Cana, attracts over 250,000 cruise passengers yearly. The new ranch is situated right in the middle of these destinations. Tanama Jungle Ranch is sure to be one of the best up and coming Punta Cana excursions and shore excursion for cruisers arriving in La Romana.
Alexander Tilanus, one of the owners, remarked, “Not many tourists know that the Dominican Republic has the most Northern rainforest in the world, and that there are 11 National Parks, each conserving a different aspect of the local biodiversity”.
The property is located along the Chavon River, bordering the National Park del Este. The ranch has a butterfly garden, a hummingbird pavilion, a reptile area, and a jungle tour. The Tanama Jungle Ranch aims to not leave any ecological footprint. Power is obtained by solar power and sophisticated grey and black water treatment systems are in place. “We do everything to minimize our impact on the surrounding nature”, stated Alexander.
Alexander Tilanus: “With SeavisTours we get a lot of clients for boat tours to Saona and Catalina Island and many are looking for an additional excursion showing the local jungle. After a year long construction we have created a world class property on the banks of the River Chavon and we are now ready to receive guests.”
The ranch is owned by Alexander & Marion Tilanus who also own SeavisTour: an excursion operator offering excursions to visitors of Punta Cana, Bayahibe, Juan Dolio and to cruise passengers and by Herman Santana, a local businessman who owns property along the Chavon River near La Romana.
