Punta Cana is famous for its glorious Caribbean beaches, luxury beach resorts, and world-class golf courses. But the Dominican Republic paradise isn’t just a place to unwind—its sun-soaked sands, lush plantations, and soaring dunes also offer a spectacular backdrop for outdoor activities. Here are some top adventures in Punta Cana.

Water Sports
Whether you want to zip along the coast on a speed boat, enjoy a mellow catamaran cruise, dive into the natural pool of Saona Island, or just head to the nearest city beach, there are endless options for watery fun in Punta Cana. Get wet on a SNUBA or snorkeling tour, fly high on a kitesurfing lesson, complete a PADI diving certification course, or enjoy a banana boat ride.

Horseback Riding
A unique and fun way to explore Punta Cana’s natural landscapes is on horseback, and a half-day tour is an ideal introduction for first-time riders. Enjoy trotting or galloping along the beach, follow the Anamaya River, and stop to explore coffee, cigar, vanilla, and cocoa plantations along the way.

Ziplining
The dramatic El Farallon Cliff is the lofty location for an unforgettable zipline adventure, and the exhilarating 8-line course offers panoramic views over Cap Cana’s forests. Combine a zipline experience with a visit to the nearby Hoyo Azul lagoon or a morning horseback ride. 

Jeep Safari and Sand Buggy Tours 
One of the most popular Punta Cana tours is exploring the rugged coastal landscapes and sand dunes along the Atlantic coast. Set out on a half-day Jeep safari or buggy excursion to Macao Beach, stopping en route to tour a local coffee plantation, swim in a natural cave pool, or visit Fantasy Cave and “Bedrock City.”
