Punta Cana: One Destination with Everything
What kind of vacation were you dreaming of?
Beyond being a great family destination, Punta Cana offers a wide variety of options for solo travelers and for couples and groups of friends. It’s a destination known for inspiring travelers who hardly want to leave. To make the most of Punta Cana, here are some options for making your Punta Cana vacation the best in your life.
Activities in Punta Cana for Grown-Ups:
Salto del Limón Waterfall: perfect for travelers into extreme sports, to reach the top you need to walk a good 2.4 kilometers. At a height of 55 meters, the cataract’s waters then flow down to a natural pool where one can swim. It’s a natural attraction but one you’ll never forget.
The Mamá Juana: Seemingly the Dominican Republic’s national beverage, the Mamá Juana is a craft drink made from roots, leaves and the bark of trees, along with a touch of red wine, some rum and honey all aged for seven days. The result is a drink sweet enough to be slightly aphrodisiacal, but refreshing none-the-less.
Aurora Cigar World Tours: if you like cigars, take a tour of the Aurora Cigar World factory. Open since 1903, you’ll learn the history and the manufacturing processes for the premium cigars of the DR.
Dune Buggy Excursions: a different way to enjoy Punta Cana’s exotic landscapes, you’ll feel the adrenaline and take in much more of the island in one of the area’s affordable rental dune buggies.
Nightlife: Beyond some of the best beaches in the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana also offers a tremendous variety of nightly entertainment in the clubs, discos and lounges throughout the area.
Nearly all the hotels in Punta Cana offer one or more nightclubs for guests and friends. The Dominican Republic is very much a party destination and guests and residents alike will often dance until dawn. Below are some of the best nightlife establishments beyond the resorts in the Punta Cana area.
Open since 2001, within the Occidental Gran Flamenco Punta Cana, this two-floor nightclub holds up to 500 revelers. The ground floor generally plays more reggaeton and salsa while upstairs in “el cielo” you’ll hear rhythms more like Techno and House.
One of Punta Cana’s most spectacular nightclubs, the former Tropicana holds an underground party within a natural cave with unique and perfect acoustics. Known also as ¨The Cave¨ it’s ideal for all visitors to Punta Cana, from couples to singles. Music varies by the night, but drinks are generous and the dancing never stops.
Coco Bongo Downtown
Open since November 2014, Coco Bongo is still the one to combine theater, musical, video, acrobatics, disco, drinks and the music that gives life to the fun at Punta Cana nights. The first Coco Bongo outside of Mexico, you’ll enjoy performances with professional acrobats, dancers and actors and all on three levels to offer an unprecedented experience.
Catalina Island; Paradise on Earth
An island with all the charm you could ask for and the spectacular sunsets, Catalina is the second largest island in the Dominican Republic. It’s also part of the Eastern National Park, untrammeled in its entirety surrounded by waters perfect for snorkeling and diving. An earthly paradise, visitors can take to the sands or enjoy the panoramic views, always accompanied by the sound of the gentle waves from the sea. Considered the very best beaches in the Dominican Republic, they may be some of the finest anywhere in the world.
Punta Cana’s not just a paradise of beaches and exotic landscapes. It’s also a fantastic place to do some shopping, from authentic Dominican markets to American-style
shopping malls. We recommend that you to carry cash as many places will not accept credit cards, and for
many, paying with cash will even earn you a discount.
Palma Real Shopping Village
An excellent place with a variety of specialty shops, you can also enjoy famous restaurants like Tony Romas or the Hard Rock Café.
La Calle Caribe, or la Caribeña, as it’s called in Punta Cana, is a great place for its authentic Caribbean atmosphere, palm trees lining the street, and a picturesque place of shops and eateries. Exclusive clothing boutiques, jewelry stores and souvenir shops make the avenue an ideal place for memories from your own trip to Punta Cana.
