Hoyo Azul, Punta Cana

(4.4/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
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. With our custom trip planner, Punta Cana attractions like Hoyo Azul can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • This place is awesome! We went in a buggy on a trip... The water is very transparent and you can see several meters deep!

  • The Excursions are okay. The time lines are bad !! To much wasted time in the day !! Two hour waits between them  more »
  • Call peculiar, Grotto with cold water well and extremely blue. Valley even if it's just to look ... But legend has it that the water has magical powers ... rejuvenate ... lol.
