Travel Tips & Advice for Punta Cana

Punta Cana Activities

Edged by both the Caribbean Sean and Atlantic Ocean, it’s all about water-based activities in Punta Cana so be sure to pack your swimwear and goggles. Think of a watersport and you’re bound to be able to try it out, here: windsurfing, kayaking, diving, snorkelling, banana boats, parasailing. Boat trips to Isla Sanoa are popular as are organised snorkelling trips to Marinarium, a natural offshore pool. Back on land – and up in the mountains – get your adrenaline pumping zip lining!

Punta Cana Food & Drink

When staying in one of Punta Cana’s high-end luxury resort you’ll be treated to an impressive range of restaurants and bars, particularly if you’re staying on All Inclusive - highly recommended) by Best at Travel. Local cuisine is a mixture of influences from indigenous, Spanish and African cultures with seafood ever-popular and rice, beans and meat a staple. Rum cocktails are found everywhere you can – try a santo libre (rum and Sprite) instead of the better-known cuba libre (rum and coke).

Punta Cana Attractions

As a true beach destination, you’ll not be surprised that the number one attraction in Punta Cana is its beautiful white sands – best enjoyed from your lounger beneath the sun. But if you’re looking for something a little more cultural, book a guided tour through the Indigenous Eye Ecological Park & Reserve, home to 100 species of birds. We also recommend the Mi Amor Pirate Rum Tour where you can learn about the history of the Dominican Republic’s rum-making.
