How to Spend 1 Day in Punta Cana

How to Spend 1 Day in Punta Cana

Punta Cana, the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic, is a paradise for beachgoers, sun seekers, and outdoors enthusiasts. Even if your time in this tropical resort is limited, you’ll be able to enjoy the beach and some adventure on land. Here’s how to make the most of your 24 hours in Punta Cana.

Morning: Outdoor Adventure

Name an outdoor activity, and you can probably do it in Punta Cana. Plan to spend your morning taking in the island’s natural beauty: Zipline through the rain forest canopy, zip through the lush landscape on a 4WD or dune buggy, horseback ride along Uvero Alto Beach, or hike through the mountains of Anamuya in search of squirrel monkeys. If you’re having trouble narrowing things down to just one activity, consider a combo tour that combines multiple adventures into one convenient package.

Afternoon: Sun, Sand, Sea

No trip to Punta Cana would be complete without spending some time on the stunning white-sand beaches. While there’s nothing wrong with grabbing a lounger and relaxing in the sun, the area is also known for its plethora of water sports for those who prefer a more active beach experience. Hop aboard a catamaran for an afternoon of sailing and snorkeling in the warm Caribbean waters, or, for an adrenaline rush, soar above the beaches while parasailing. Scuba diving, whale watching, Scubadoo, glass-bottom boat tours, and booze cruises round out the menu of aquatic activities.

Night: Dance the Night Away

The action in Punta Cana doesn’t stop once the sun goes down. In fact, the nightlife here is legendary. Bid farewell to the island in epic fashion with a night out on the town. Start with some live entertainment at Coco Bongo, one of Punta Cana’s most famous stage shows, before heading to one of the area’s top nightclubs or discos for dancing, socializing, and drinking cocktails mixed by flair bartenders. Book a nightlife tour for a hassle-free experience; many include access to an all-you-can-drink open bar as well as safe, round-trip transportation from your Punta Cana hotel. For something a little more low-key, opt for an evening cooking class instead, and bring home the flavors of the Dominican Republic.
