Punta Cana

3.7
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. Punta Cana is in La Altagracia Province. Make your own Punta Cana vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Dominican Republic online vacation maker.

Where to stay in Punta Cana

Upscale hotels and luxurious beach resorts dominate Punta Cana. The region features two main tourist hubs--north, around El Cortecito, and south, near Juanillo. El Cortecito boasts the widest range of options, with everything from budget surf clubs and hostels to 5-star resorts jostling for space along the beach. Juanillo offers a quieter, more luxurious ambiance, as well as excellent proximity to the airport.
