Punta Cana Travel Tips
If the Dominican Republic's southeast has the best beaches in the country, the very best beaches in this region can be found at Punta Cana. Ground zero of DR tourism, it's no wonder Punta Cana is the name many travelers recognize. Postcards don't do justice to those white-sand beaches and warm aquamarine waters, the coconut palms reaching up into cloudless blue skies.
Punta Cana is shorthand for the region as a whole, but it's actually something of a misnomer. The majority of resorts are scattered around the beaches of Bavaro, really nothing more than a series of small commercial plazas, and Cortecito, a short strip of shops along a "town beach." Punta Cana (Grey-Haired Point), the easternmost tip of the country and where the airport is located, has some of the more luxurious resorts and Caribbean-hugging golf courses.
