4.5 993 Reviews | Add your review

The Dominican Republic is known for its spectacular beaches, and Punta Cana is no exception. But Punta Cana differs from other beaches in the region because of its year-round pleasant weather that makes its white sand beaches and aquamarine waters all the more enjoyable. If the beach isn’t enough to keep you busy, here are some other interesting things to do while vacationing in Punta Cana.

Day 1: Punta Cana Beach-Hopping

Check into one of the many all-inclusive beach front resorts for the best value and quickest access to the beach. As soon as you’ve settled in, take out your beachwear and hit the sand and surf. Young or old, there’s plenty to keep everyone busy at Punta Cana beaches like Bavaro, El Cortecito and Arena Gorda. Take your pick from scuba-diving, snorkelling, deep-sea fishing or a leisurely swim along magnificent coral reefs.  End the day with an evening cruise around the port or a catamaran cruise to Isla Saona.

Day 2: Into the Wild

If you want a rush of adrenaline, engage in some whale watching and shark spotting in their natural habitat. If there’s plenty to see in the water, there’s just as much excitement on land. Embark on a country adventure safari into the outback and enjoy horseback riding while you gain a true appreciation of the way of life of the people of the Dominican Republic.

Day 3: Excursions from Punta Cana

Step out of the immediate confines of Punta Cana and embark on a tour of Santo Domingo, the oldest city in the Americas. Steeped in history, Santo Domingo is a delectable blend of traditional and modern in more ways than one. For those who are shopaholics, El Conde is a must visit for the best deals and bargains. For the men who hate shopping trips, nearby Cap Cana has fantastic golf greens you’d love to tee off on. If you’re staying over the night, be sure to partake in Punta Cana’s vibrant nightlife as you sip on those heavenly piña coladas!
