Punta Cana is located on the eastern-most tip of the Dominican Republic, bordering both the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Famed for its white sand beaches, it is ideal for sun-seekers who want to relax surrounded by postcard stretches of turquoise sea.
As a tourist destination, there are endless activities to keep you busy on your holiday. It is always recommended to stay in one of the all-inclusive resorts that stretch across the area, as although the city offers plenty of activities there is not an abundance of restaurants. During the day, you will never be short of something to do, that is if you can peel yourself away from the picturesque beaches! The most popular activities include scuba diving, zip lining, and an endless list of water sports, such as paddle-boarding or parasailing. Staff at your hotel will always be able to book these excursions, but if not there are usually people on the beaches who can get this organised for you.
Head to Punta Cana’s tropical forests and zip line over the canopy. For a change of scenery, though just as spectacular as the beaches, the lush forests in Punta Cana offer a day of fun and education for all the family. This adrenaline fuelled adventure is a favourite amongst tourists as it is not something that you get to do every day. Experienced guides accompany you throughout - a great relief as you fly over open valleys and treetops. If you do not have a head for heights then you don’t have to take on the zip line, head to The Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park and Reserve, which is found close to most of the main resorts in Punta Cana. The area is a subtropical forest and is dedicated to the conservation and scientific research of the forest and life within it. The park has numerous exhibits including a petting zoo, an iguana habitat and many other attractions. It also has five freshwater lagoons you can swim in, which provide the perfect backdrop for your sought-after Instagram picture.
From its green vegetation and turquoise beaches to tropical paradises filled with colourful birds and wildlife, this island is like an artist’s pallet filled with all the colours of the rainbow in the most vivid shades, which all mix together to create the beautiful Dominican Republic.
