Punta Cana

In an area boasting beaches that face both the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, vacations in Punta Cana have been popular with tourists since the early 1970s. Near the easternmost tip of Dominican Republic, this developed region offers modern resorts catering mostly to families with children, providing all-inclusive experiences with a range of outdoor activities. Punta Cana holidays are also popular with honeymooners, who come here to take advantage of silky white-sand beaches fringed with coconut palms. Visitors looking for something more than sun and sand can tour the World Heritage-listed city of Santo Domingo, the first town founded by Europeans in the Western Hemisphere. Use our Dominican Republic trip planning website to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Punta Cana.
