Punta Cana Tourism

Punta Cana is the standout celebrity amongst its other Caribbean sisters. It has been discovered and how! By sun seekers, high end resorts and apparently every other beach bum in the world. But, understandably so. The slippery sands are perhaps the softest your skin has ever touched and the aquamarine waters create a dramatic backdrop against the white of the sand.

If you’d only get out of that all-inclusive resort, you’d see that between the relentless developments of the town, there are a plethora of sights that encourage you to explore and wander. Of course, there are the numerous opportunities of water sports and that peachy tan that beckons. But there is also some adventure in store. If you are a fan of the extreme, hike up the Hoyo Azul for some stunning views. Or watch in awe as the waves serenade you at the Punta Espada golf course.

There’s a bit of character hidden in unassuming corners of the city. On your time off from spas and swimming, walk around the town and experience its true glory in the most unexpected places.
