Punta Cana, Dominican Republic: The Caribbean's Crown Jewel
Punta Cana, which sits on the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic, is known for its white, sandy beaches and the resorts that line them. The area has been popular with visitors since the 1970s, due to the warm weather and abundance of beaches, and the majority of the five million people who fly into the country each year spend at least some time in the Punta Cana area.
The coastline in Punta Cana is 100 kilometres long, leaving visitors with unparalleled opportunities, as it is easy to find a quiet and secluded spot on which to relax. Alternatively, many of the resorts provide a livelier atmosphere for those looking for a party. Punta Cana is the most popular destination in the entire Caribbean because of the wonderful environment and the sheer number of things to do whilst staying in this beautiful part of the country.
Hit the Beach
Most of the resorts in Punta Cana have their own private stretches of beach, providing visitors with a relaxing place to spend the day. At the same time, those who are looking for a real Dominican experience might want to venture off the resort to a public beach. Bavaro Beach is the most famous beach in the area and although it is lined with resorts, there are private areas where guests can escape the crowds and public areas where it is possible to find local crowds.
Other popular beaches in Punta Cana include Macao Beach and Juanillo Beach. Macao Beach is a public beach on a small bay that is a little bit away from the resorts in the area. It is also one of the only beaches in the entire country where surfing is possible. Juanillo Beach is close to some resorts, but is less saturated than Bavaro Beach and, therefore, a quiet place to spend a few hours in the sun.
Do Some Snorkelling
Punta Cana has some of the world's best snorkelling thanks to the coral reef that surrounds it. The presence of this reef keeps the water calm and, therefore, makes it easy to float on the surface and see the fish below. It also keeps larger fish and mammals from entering the area, ensuring that it is safe to snorkel throughout this part of the ocean.
Many of the hotels in this area have guides that can be hired to take visitors out into the ocean to do some snorkelling. Simply ask at the front desk if this is an option through your resort, as this is the easiest way to get out there and see some of the native species in Punta Cana. For an upgraded experience, it is possible to book a tour to Catalina Island, which has crystal clear waters and provides an outstanding place to snorkel.
Visit an Adventure Park
When wandering around their hotels, visitors are sure to see all kinds of advertisements for the various adventure parks throughout Punta Cana. These parks have different themes, depending on who wants to visit and how much activity they want to get during the day. Perhaps the most popular is Scape Park, which is a natural theme park that features horseback riding, zip lines, a cave expedition, and an eco-tour. Hoyo Azul, Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park & Reserve, and La Hacienda Park are other parks in Punta Cana area that are well worth a visit.
Another popular park in the region is the Marinarium. This is an area in the ocean where guests can swim with nurse sharks in their natural habitat. There are stingrays around, as well, providing those who visit this park with a great deal of excitement. The Seaquarium provides visitors with scuba diving equipment, but rather than doing a deep-sea dive, guests walk along the bottom of the ocean in the midst of a coral reef. This is a unique experience, as sealife swims above the swimmers.
Play Some Golf
Punta Cana has a very impressive golf scene, as there are championship level courses at many of the hotel complexes. Punta Espada Golf Course sits right along the ocean and is one of the most scenic courses in the entire Caribbean region. The course has hosted a PGA Champions Tour event in the past and is a long, challenging play. Iberostate Bavaro Golf & Club isn't quite as scenic, but it features both tropical and desert like features, ensuring that every hole is different.
La Cana Golf Course is another course that is close to the ocean and provides outstanding views. In fact, 14 of its holes are along the ocean, so the course stands out from the rest. Other high-end golf courses in Punta Cana include the Hard Rock Golf Club, Barcelo Lakes Golf Course, Punta Blanca Golf Course, and the Cocotal Golf & Country Club.
Restaurants and Nightlife
Although many visitors to Punta Cana stay at all-inclusive resorts that have their own bars and restaurants, many choose to explore outside of the hotel. Local seafood restaurants can be found on the beach in Punta Cana and provide something a little different each night. Restaurants can be found on the small islands off the coast, as well, and are only accessible by boat. While the nightlife in the area isn't outstanding, larger resorts will allow outside guests into their nightclubs for a surcharge.
