Hoyo Azul, Punta Cana

4.4
#2 of 6 in Nature in La Altagracia Province
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 .

    This was very pretty. They allow way to many people in the group though so its extremely crowded. Do not choose the waterfall as a second option  more »

    We just did the tour of Hoyo blue, as we were with our small children and we didn't want to stay too long away from the hotel. The ride was excellent. The Hoyo blue is stunning. And the little ones behaved very well because the path is short. However, take repellent. There are many mosquitoes.

    A place that provides a sense of tranquility near nature. It is different from everything that you can get to see in Punta Cana. Ice water with an incredible turquoise background color
