Punta Cana is considered one of the most beautiful areas of the Dominican Republic. Situated on the east coast, holidays in Punta Cana give you access to an incredible tropical paradise.

Doze in the shade of the large palm trees which line the coast, or enjoy a cocktail from one of the many charming beach bars.

Venture inland and you are rewarded with a wealth of experiences, from sites of historical interest to nature parks and beautiful countryside.
Fun and adventure with Punta Cana holidays
Nature lovers will be in their element in Punta Cana. Holidays here involve everything from swimming with dolphins to jungle treks and swimming in scenic cool water springs. Of course the main attraction for many of you will be the lovely beaches. Punta Cana is full of good spots for a day on the beach. Bavaro, Cabeza de Toro and Cap Cana are all within easy reach. With calm, shallow waters they are ideal for a relaxing dip or, if you are a bit more activity, then the conditions in this area of the Dominican Republic are perfect for wind and kite surfing. With instructors available for beginners this exhilarating pastime is well worth a try.
Just a short boat ride will take you to Dolphin Island. A man-made island, this is the perfect spot if you want to swim with dolphins. Get into the water with these intelligent and friendly creatures, for a magical experience. Another great attraction for nature lovers is the Punta Cana Ecological Reserve. A short, guided tour of the reserve will give you a chance to spot various rare tropical fauna. After a walk through the jungle you will have the chance to take a dip in a refreshingly cool natural spring!
In the evenings enjoy a delicious meal at one of the local restaurants. Fresh fish and seafood is always on the menu, as well as various other local delicacies. Try some mangu, a favourite local dish made with mashed plantain.
