Hoyo Azul, Punta Cana

(4.4/5 based on 2,000+ 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.

  • Went on the boogie tour and one of the stops was this place. Water was cold at first, but it quickly felt really refreshing! I've never swam in a cave before so it was definitely very neat! 
  • Worth the trip to this spot, take the scenic trip out to Hoya Azul. It was a really nice swim in the freshwater! 
  • THE place is a beautiful cave to meet but if there were many people who had. take you on tour and you don't reach to appreciate the place because it is too small the cave for more than 10 people, and in the tour van as 50.
