Please recommend 2 half day excursions

GF and I are looking at staying 2 weeks in Punta Cana this December. We have found that one excursion per week works perfect.

Which 2 half day (approx 4-6 hours) excursions would you recommend? We prefer DIY, but tour also okay.

We are going for two weeks in November and are doing the half day Xtreme Buggy and Marinarium excursions. We are also doing the Soana trip that is full day.

Looking at the Outback Safari and Punta Cana Mike Tours...they look similar. Which would you recommend and why?

Would also love to see a Dominican winter league baseball game...

Outback Safari is in the back of an Army type truck. Rough road. Lots of fun. Macao Beach is veryyyy nice. Mike's is in an air conditioned comfortable bus. The time of year you go could be a major factor in your decision. It gets hot inland. Mike will take you to see the real area and meet the real people. There is some question as to how much of Outback Safari's trip is a "set up".

Bravo Runners also does a Zip Line tour. It's on the same road and uses the same type truck. Depending on your age and how adventuresome you are, it is well worth the time/cost.

Xtreme Buggy is a great excursion. So good that we're going to do it again next month when we're back in PC.

You could try surfing with Macao Surf Camp (half day) or Stand Up Paddle Boarding (in Bayahibe half day).
