Punta Cana Nightlife
By Viator, November 2013
Punta Cana by night can take on a very different feel from its leisurely daytime vibe. Indeed, as the sun sets in the Dominican Republic, islanders and tourists come out to party by the dozens. Evening activities commence around dinner time, but the real partying only picks up around midnight.
If you’re checked into one of Punta Cana’s signature all-inclusive resorts, be sure to catch an evening show where music, dance and laughter combine in a merry act of entertainment. Next, sample some fine local cuisine at a beachside restaurant or gorge on a delectable buffet at a resort. Alternatively, you may hit the bars and start sipping those lip-smacking piña coladas or any other rum based poison of your choice!
For those who live to boogie the night away, Punta Cana has an eclectic mix of discotheques that bring together tourists from all over the world and party enthusiasts of all ages. Don’t be surprised if you bump into a 70 year old on the dance floor, everyone dances in the D.R.! Take your pick from Bachata, Merengue, Reggae, Hip-Hop, House, Trance and Latin as many discos like Mangu, Areito and Disco Pacha have separate areas designated to specific dance forms. Strong Caribbean influences can be found in both the music and ambiance of most places, adding to the experience of a Caribbean vacation.
When your tired legs need a break, consider trying your hand at the slot machines in one of the many resort casinos. But don’t worry if you don’t hit the jackpot, you can always drown your sorrows with a drink at a beachside bar!
