About Us

Runners Adventures


We were originally founded in 1996 by Carlos Medrano in the Dominican Republic. His vision was to provide the greatest experiences of the local culture to travelers. The original name of the company was Bavaro Runners and it had its main operations in the Punta Cana area. Due to the success of the company, we have grown into a multi-destination operation, currently working in Puerto Plata, Samana, Juan Dolio, Boca Chica, La Romana, Bayahibe, and Punta Cana.

We are the undeniable leaders of the industry and in 2017 we were chosen as the Best Adventure Travel Company in the Dominican Republic for the second year in a row by Luxury Travel Guide Magazine. For more than 10 years, we have been recognized by TripAdvisor with Certificates of Excellence for our remarkable service in all of our tours, therefore making us members of the Hall of Fame.

In 2015, 2016, and 2017 we have obtained the Security Certificate by the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) for our Zip Line excursions in Punta Cana, La Romana, Puerto Plata, and Samana.
