Head to this lively resort on the beautiful island of the Dominican Republic and you'll be in no doubt why thousands of sun-seekers plump for holidays in Punta Cana all year round. Punta Cana holidays welcome you with swathes of white sand stretching across a 55km coastline, which borders the Atlantic in the north and the Caribbean towards the south. From buzzing Bavaro to serene Uvero Alto, holidays in Punta Cana offer something for all, including a sprinkling of A-listers to spot! Punta Cana’s airport is among the most popular in the Caribbean and is minutes away from resorts and hotels in the area.

 

Honeymooners can plan a romantic escape to Punta Cana, with plentiful options for resorts where you can sip cocktails by the pool or tee off at picturesque Cana Bay Golf Club and Punta Espada. If you're on a family holiday, let your kids explore the world underwater, with a glass-bottomed ride along the Punta Cana coast or take surfing lessons on Macao Beach.

 

With pristine white sands and electric-blue waters, Punta Cana is a perfect choice for those who want to relax and soak up the Caribbean sunshine. This Caribbean gem is a great option for winter sun holidays, with temperatures averaging 28-29°C. The best months to visit Punta Cana is between March and May, avoiding the peak rush and when the temperature is warm. The summer months of June to September are very hot, while winters are pleasant yet still stay above 20°C. If you’re travelling in August, be sure to pack your raincoat!

Places to go and things to do in Punta Cana

Dive Into the Blue

Dive Into the Blue

Swim, snorkel, scuba dive or just enjoy those incredible azure blue waters from your hotel balcony. The Caribbean Sea is picture-postcard perfect in Punta Cana. Fancy skippering a speedboat from Arena Gordo Beach, fishing for your own catch of the day off the coast of Bavaro, or discovering what swims beneath with the help of a snorkel or scuba kit? It’s all here on the coast of Punta Cana.

Tour Samana

To the northeast of the island lies the Samana peninsular – one of the most scenic parts of the country. Take a day-long excursion here and visit the cascading crystal-clear waters of El Salto del Limon and Bacardi Island (locally known as Cayo Levantado) and relax on the beach while the barmen from the beach barmix your favourite drinks.

Get to the Chopper

Don’t worry, there’ll be no Predator in sight! But what better way to admire the beauty of the Dominican Republic than by air! Take a helicopter ride and marvel at paradise below. These 20-40 minute tours zip over white-sand beaches, luxury resorts and lush rainforest, giving you a whole new persepctive on this jewel of the Caribbean. Combine this once in a lifetime trip with an anniversary or special occasion for the perfect day out.

Cast Away on a Tropical Island

Off the coast of Punta Cana, there are two stunning islands just waiting to be explored. Cast away from the mainland and head for the shores of Isla Saona or Isla Catalina for the day, where you can bask in the sun on a stretch of remote sand. Bliss...

See Waterfalls on a 4x4 Safari

Steal yourself away from the palm-fringed beaches for a day and take an awesome adventure on board a mega truck safari! Explore the real Dominican Republic in 4x4 vehicles through backroads and across sugar cane fields. Visit local communities, try horse riding or visit the El Limon waterfalls and enjoy a refreshing dip in the river before heading back to resort.

Splash Around on a Boat

Hire a speedboat or catamaran at Bravado and skim across the sparkling blue sea in style. If you prefer group excursions and someone else to helm the boat, there are lots of different cruises to choose from including party boats and quieter catamaran cruises at sunset. Several dive companies operate from Punta Cana and kayak safaris are another great way of exploring more of the captivating coastline.

Explore Underground Caves

Take a day trip to Fun Fun Cave where you can repel 20m (65ft) to the base of the cave, discover the history of the area and horseback ride through beautiful Los Haitises National Park.

Enjoy Sundowners on the Beach

Kick off your evening with sundowners at one of the great resort beach bars. Punta Cana, especially the Bavaro area, has thriving nightlife with many bars, restaurants and nightclubs dotting this resort. Enjoy wine with tapas at a small bar with live music or dance away the night at one of the famous discos.
