The Dominican Republic is the most visited Caribbean destination, and Punta Cana is the number one destination in the country. Located in Cabo Engaño, the easternmost area of the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana has become one of the most touristic areas due to its offer of all-inclusive resorts. With an area of about 420,000 m2 (approximately 1,100 acres), the region is home to a coastline of white sand beaches and a city with the same name. Punta Cana is a region known for its 32 km of beaches and crystal clear waters.
The area of Bávaro and Punta Cana combine to form what is known as the Costa del Coco, or Coconut Coast, an area of luxurious all-inclusive resorts. It is popular for ziplining, windsurfing, kayaking and sailing. European businessmen, especially Spanish hotel chains, own all but two of the more than 50 mega-resorts in the tourist destination of Punta Cana. Just a few decades ago, Punta Cana was a jungle of palm trees that danced and grew freely on the pristine coastline of fascinating beaches.
Today, Punta Cana is the Caribbean's most popular and beloved beach and golf resort destination. Each property incorporates Dominican culture in unique ways, providing visitors with the perfect balance between a resort and a cultural experience with a bilingual staff that does everything possible to provide guests with an unforgettable experience. Punta Cana has one of the busiest and best-connected airports in the region, and sometimes receives more flights than the Las Americas International Airport, located in Santo Domingo (about a three-hour drive). With a resort package, most hotels will arrange for you to pick up at the Punta Cana airport.
Other interesting activities you can participate in include golf or horseback riding in the Punta Cana Ecological Park area. Visiting the Dominican Republic's smaller Caribbean islands, Saona and Catalina, is a day trip from Punta Cana. You can now get a minivan with a ramp for disabled access through the side door, to ensure safe and comfortable transportation to your destination while you are in Punta Cana.Experience Punta Cana to the fullest with its incredible beaches, hotels and many activities designed to make your vacation a tropical dream. There is no better way to explore this Caribbean paradise than by taking advantage of all that it has to offer.
