    Default MotoCaribe SW Tour, 1/6 - 1/13 2018

    MotoCaribe tours the Southwest on January 6th - 13th, 2018.

    We have plenty of space available in our 15-passenger Van so no need to ride a motorcycle.

    If you'd like to tour the Southwest drop me a PM and I'll put together a custom package at a fair price just for you. Families are fine!

    Here is a video of a MotoCaribe SW Tour from 2015 that was the subject of a magazine article:

    That's an unbelievable, fabulous bike trip! Probably the best in the country. Hands down, my favorite trip on this island. Highly recommend it. The sites are absolutely stunning on the south-west coast, and very different terrain than what we have here on the north coast. Truly spectacular. Highway 44 (near Barahona) alone is worth the entire cost of the trip. I put this trip up against Highway 1 in northern California--which i have done numerous times. I don't think any motorcycle trip compares to it. And i've done thousands.

    You should pitch this yearly trip to Carnival for the motorcycle clubs who bring their bikes with them specifically for touring islands. PR El yunque , and St. John are yearly events for the US based clubs.

    Spectacular itinerary indeed for a one week tour. Those in search of the real RD should undoubtedly consider the opportunity.

    We were planning a special tour where folks fly into the DR, we ride to Santo Domingo and take the ferry to San Juan. Then we ride PR for three days and then ferry back. Besides the cost, PR has now been decimated. I doubt we'll try it for at least two years...if ever.
