Punta Cana is a region located in the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic. 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. It is situated at the junction between two bodies of water, the Atlantic and the Caribbean Sea. The area is quite deserted, but Punta Cana's proximity to other important tourist areas, such as Bávaro and Uvero Alto, make it one of the main destinations in the Caribbean.
In fact, it is the second most popular tourist destination in Latin America, with more visitors than any other city in the region. When traveling to Punta Cana, you can experience its incredible beaches, hotels and many activities designed to make your vacation a tropical dream. You can also participate in activities such as golf or horseback riding in the Punta Cana Ecological Park area. Most hotels will arrange for you to pick up at the Punta Cana airport.
It 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). To get to and from the airport, you can use airport transfer services. There is a company that offers safe, clean and comfortable vehicles, with a ramp in the side door, specially designed to help travelers with physical disabilities arriving in Punta Cana. Punta Cana is located in the coastal area east of the province of La Altagracia, an area with kilometers of beaches and paradisiacal tourist centers.
For tourists, it is more popular because it's more affordable at international prices.
