AniVillas_DominicanRepublic_MagicMushroom

MAGIC MUSHROOM WATERFALLS

The Dominican Republic is blessed with some of the most beautiful, multiple waterfalls in the world and this is unique experience is one of the most popular with our guests. Starting at the top, explore each different level of the falls by either rappelling or sliding down. For those that do not wish to rappel, there are relaxed “walk arounds” the repelling sections, that also take in the stunning scenery then re-join to the group below.

The trip starts with a couple of easy jumps before you come upon the highlight of the day, the Magic Mushroom itself. Two intense rappels are followed by some great jumps. 

For adrenaline junkies the second rappel can be jumped and at 15m/45ft is enough for most people! Top guides and instruction with full safety gear included. Bring tennis or river shoes, swimsuit, some towel and dry clothes.

GOLF AT PLAYA GRANDE

Sprawling over 180 acres of picturesque coastline, the world-class Playa Grande Golf Course, designed by celebrated architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and recently renovated by his son Rees Jones, is known as “the Pebble Beach of the Caribbean” by the golf community. With 10 holes playing directly on the ocean, this 7,085-yard course winds along the coastline, providing amazingly open vistas, cliff-side fairways, and sloping greens. With respect for the legacy created by his father, world-renowned golf designer Rees Jones has directed the renovation of the Playa Grande Golf Course and has enhanced the experience to challenge golfers at every skill level.

ÀNI ART ACADEMY

The Ani Art Academies Dominicana studios are located on a beautiful four acre site on The Dominican Republic's North Coast.  The area is fantastic with rolling plush hills that spill down to the coast line and a number of beautiful beaches. It is a more rural feeling part of the country with farmers and ranchers living in the hills -a warm and welcoming population. Both studios are modeled after the original Ani Art Academy Waichulis design. Each Artists' spacious workstation offers customizable lighting scenarios, generous storage, and multiple working surface options. High windows can flood the studio for collective projects or can be controlled to offer individual optimized lighting. Specially-made resources designed exclusively for the Ani Art Academies curriculum are readily available, making for an even more effective and enjoyable learning environment.
