Punta Cana is a popular destination for travelers looking for a luxurious vacation, but it's not the cheapest place to visit in the Dominican Republic. Grocery stores are still cheaper than in the United States, but compared to some European countries, shopping in Punta Cana is not as affordable as you might expect. The Punta Cana International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the Caribbean, with more than 50 different airlines. If you're looking for ways to save money while staying in a guesthouse, AirBnB, or hostel, there are some tips you can follow.
Local produce is usually the cheapest option when it comes to grocery shopping in Punta Cana, and buying fruits and vegetables from vendors on the road can be even more affordable. Transportation costs are higher than in other parts of the Dominican Republic, but still quite reasonable compared to other countries. Renting a car is also an option that gives you extra flexibility and allows you to go on amazing day trips from Punta Cana. All-inclusive resorts are predominant in Punta Cana and account for more than 90% of all hotel beds, but there are also all types of accommodation available in the Bavaro area, Macau and beyond.
So if you're looking for a luxurious vacation without breaking the bank, Punta Cana is definitely worth considering.
