Beautiful Beaches

Beautiful Beaches One of the best reasons to visit Punta Cana is for the beaches. The water is clear, turquoise, and warm, and the waves are perfect - not too still, not too strong. Since Punta Cana is a frequently travelled spot for vacationers, the resorts tend to keep their beaches extremely clean, too, which is a nice touch. Tractors even run daily to clear away the pesky seaweed!


Friendly People

Friendly People The people of the Dominican are some of the nicest I've met in the Caribbean. Those that work at the resorts are always willing to help you plan out your stay so you have the best time in their home country!



Reasonable While any travel is relatively pricey, Punta Cana is a fairly reasonable place to travel compared to other areas in the Caribbean. This is partly due to the fact that the island is larger than many other Caribbean islands, and thus does not have to import as many of its supplies and food as do other smaller islands. In addition to this, Punta Cana offers a wide range of all-inclusive resorts which means your resort fee covers your room, food, and all the alcohol you could want (if you are at least 18, that is).



All-Inclusives I only travel to all-inclusive resorts any more. Getting your stay, food, and drinks for one fee keeps your vacation lavish, because you can eat and drink as much as you want. Some resorts even include a snorkeling trip, dance lessons, and horseback riding activities as part of their all-inclusive packages. I highly recommend staying at one of Punta Cana's many all-inclusive resorts if you travel there!


The beauty of all-inclusives is the effortless enjoyment. From the minute you check in, you're treated to limitless indulgences. Imagine sipping on a tropical cocktail by the pool with no concern about running up a tab. Whether craving midnight snacks or up for a gourmet dinner, the culinary options are bountiful. And the joy doesn't stop with food and drinks – entertainment and activities are readily available without the hassle of pulling out your wallet. This truly is the epitome of stress-free vacationing, allowing you to fully unwind and soak in the Caribbean charm.


Passion Fruit

Passion Fruit The first time I had passion fruit was when I visited Punta Cana. If you've never had passion fruit before, it's something you've got to try. Passion fruit is a tropical, yellow, seeded fruit that is difficult to find your traditional grocery store. In the Dominican, they often put it into custards, drinks, and other desserts, but my favorite way to eat it is plain. But all ways are delicious!

Famous Quotes

Happiness depends upon ourselves.


Mama Juana

Mama Juana Mama Juana is the traditional alcoholic drink of the Dominican Republic. It is made from rum, red wine, honey and a mixture of twigs and leaves from the Dominican rainforest. Due to the homemade nature of this drink, no two bottles are exactly alike. Some are incredibly strong and others are pretty tasty. It's best to take a sip of the one you're being offered before you get a whole shot!


Easy Travel

Easy Travel Flying to Punta Cana is extremely easy since the island can land commercial planes. This makes this island one of the easiest to visit in the Caribbean, since this is not the norm for the smaller islands. Many other islands require a flight into a larger island and then either a small plane or ferry ride to your island. So skip all this hassle and take your next Caribbean vacation in Punta Cana!

Punta Cana is one of the many amazing place to visit in the Caribbean. What other islands do you enjoy visiting?

its fab i was last year i love it!! plus is not expensive!! hotel include everything!!! soo worth!!! going back this year!!


I have to say although Punta Cana is beyond beautiful, the Dominican Reoublic has loads of other beautiful destinations (not just the common touristy places). I highly encourage you to do your research on travel to other parts of the country. That way you will get a real sense & feel of it. Plus, you'll actually have the chance to brag about it. El Palmar De Ocoa is sooo beautiful and super lively. The people are nice and the village is very amazing. I go every other year. I recommend. And now I believe a resort is being built.

My boyfriend and I are visiting punta Cana this April! Thanks(:!

@Michelle, so am I and my boyfriend! April 13 is my birthday so we're looking at prices for a week stay. ((:

I totally agree. I am Dominican (I have actually never been to Punta Cana) but my friend literally lives there and she sends pictures and always says it is paradise there! I am totally giving it a go once I travel other destinations other than D.R since I've been there quite often already.
