Punta Cana

Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism
Punta Cana — Punta Cana, which encompasses several areas along the east coast of the Dominican Republic, including Bávaro, El Cortecito, and Cap Cana, has exploded in popularity in recent years, thanks to its spectacular beaches, affordable hotels and easy access from many American cities. But, as is often the case with rapid growth, some criticisms arose over the glut of massive properties and an increasingly hard-partying, touristy atmosphere. As a result, there’s been recent emphasis on polishing the area’s image with eco-friendly development and resorts that cater only to couples. As a result, Punta Cana has evolved into a popular Caribbean destination for a wide variety of travelers.

Why Go

For the all-around relaxation and entertainment, not to mention affordable accommodations and friendly locals.
