Explore the Coconut Coast of Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Punta Cana sits at the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. The region’s 32km of white sand beaches and clear waters are known as La Costa del Coco, or the Coconut Coast. Here you will find Punta Cana’s lavish, all-inclusive resorts that beg you to leave your winter worries behind and disappear into a sun-drenched paradise.
Exotic beaches and coral reefs, coconut palms and tranquil turquoise waters will make it hard to remember what work means. Step slowly into the gentle sea and snorkel over the reefs to swim with tropical fish, turtles and rays.
Dune buggies, windsurfing, sailing and more! Ziplines are a great way to catch a thrill and see the jungle canopy. Inland safari tours will show you a side of Punta Cana you won’t find at the seaside. Take a catamaran trip to visit the surrounding islands and let your thoughts drift away on the salt breeze.
Visit Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park and Reserve and the tropical habitats and freshwater lagoons that host hundreds of native species like the endangered Ridgway’s hawk. Explore coconut groves and beautiful beaches on guided horseback trips.
Tee off with panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea where golfers can find calm on the fairways this winter at a selection of inland courses that pepper the Punta Cana resort area. Or challenge yourself seaside on the famous Jack Nicolas designed 18-hole course Punta Espada, with 8 signature holes playing along and over the sea.
When the sun goes down the lights come up, you’ll find yourself sipping cocktails and dancing the night away, Dominican style. Discos, casinos, cigar lounges, outdoor beach bars and even a nightclub in a cave are all within the resort area!
