Hoyo Azul, Punta Cana

4.5
#2 of 6 in Nature in Punta Cana
Take a refreshing dip in the brightly colored pool of Hoyo Azul, a water-filled cavern. You'll need to hike a little way along wooden walkways and via various entry points to reach the cenote, so bring sturdy shoes. Consider getting a guide to show you orchid gardens and other fauna along the way. Don't forget your swimming gear--especially some goggles--to help you get a good look at the formations below. Keep moving to stay warm in the cool water. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Hoyo Azul by using our Punta Cana holiday planner .

  • A beautiful place with a mysterious origin. Best visited in the morning hours while the water is perfectly clear. Perfect for a refreshing swim before or after visiting the rest of Scape Park. However, people with sensitive skin should test the water for allergic reaction first.
  • Beautiful blue hole, refreshing water. We enjoyed our visit to Scape Park
  • This is a MUST. Now, you may feel frightened or nervous. Let me tell you: I stood up there for 15 minutes with a big crowd of tourists giving me support, jump, jump! I did jump, and after that first jump, I did not stop jumping. I just needed to break the ice. There are no animals. It is just clean, blue water. Water is fresh this time of the year. The way to get there is to buy the all day pass at Scape Park. There is so much to see.
  • Wonderful place I was her ....l am happy!!!
  • Amazing! Cold, so be prepared for it, however absolutely beautiful once you're in. I did get stung, so watch out for bees low to the ground. Also, not wheelchair accessible. Really fun overall and there's also a jumping platform for kids and adults x
