  • Admission: $59
Don’t let the name fool you: Hoyo Azul, or Blue Hole, has more to offer than its simple moniker belies. This famous turquoise-water cenote (natural pool) in Punta Cana, whose unexpected existence at the base of a 200-foot (61-meter) cliff surprises and delights visitors, is one of the Dominican Republic’s top destinations for the swimming, ziplining, nature tours, and other activities based around it.

The Basics
Hoyo Azul is located in Scape Park, which itself is in Cap Cana Resort. To reach the cenote, take a guided hike through the park—learning about the native bromeliads, orchids, and ferns at endemic plant stations along the way—and reward yourself with a much-needed dip at the end. Zipline tours through Cap Cana Resort typically stop at Hoyo Azul, as well, and feature stunning views of the lush landscape, El Farallon cliff, and the Caribbean Sea. Those with an interest in nature can get a better understanding of the Cap Cana ecosystem on a full-day ecotour that combines suspension bridges, ziplines, and hiking with a trip to Hoyo Azul. Full-day tours from Punta Cana, including catamaran cruises and guided transportation, are also available for an easy day trip. 
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Cap Cana Resort offers a variety of tour packages that include a trip to Hoyo Azul. 
  • Bring your own towel and spending cash for souvenirs and photos.

How to Get There
Cap Cana is located just 15 minutes from Punta Cana International Airport. Take an airport transfer, taxi, or shuttle from there for only a few dollars. Many tours of the area stop at Hoyo Azul.

When to Get There
