Attractions in Punta Cana
Mount Isobel de Torres: Here are two attractions in one to see on your holidays to Punta Cana – the Mount Isobel de Torres forms the verdant mountainous backdrop to Punta Cana, plus there’s a stunning stone sculpture of Jesus Christ at its summit. Tours are available to the top of the mountain almost every day, but for those who’d rather not make the trek 2,600 feet above sea level, there are cable cars to the top to save the strain on your legs.
Altos de Chavon: A complete town in its own right around 40km away from Punta Cana holidays, Altos de Chavon was created as a reconstruction of a European Medieval town in 1976. As many local artists were encouraged to provide their creativity to the project, Altos has a prestigious art and design school too. The main highlights to see are a 5,000 seat amphitheatre where many famous pop acts have performed, and the Tudor style St Stanislaus Church.
Activities in Punta Cana
Dominican Amber Museum: Housed in a resplendent white Victorian-styled building, the Dominican Amber Museum has some fine examples of the yellow-hued precious stones. Dominican amber is considered the most transparent in the world, giving it a great degree of clarity. You’ll even be able to pick up an amber souvenir to remind you of your holidays in Dominican Republic.
Golfing holidays: Punta Cana holidays are a delight for golfing holidays, because there are over 12 golf courses in the area, all of which have been built since 1991. Some of the best courses include the pristine Punta Blanca Golf Club which has plenty of sandy bunkers, La Cana Golf Course, which is a stunning links style course which follows the coast, and Cocotal Golf Club, which has some huge water features.
Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park: The best thing about this nature reserve is the sheer diversity of wildlife within its boundaries. Much of the plant life in the reserve is found nowhere else on earth, making it a truly unique experience to enjoy on your holidays in Punta Cana. The name itself actually refers to twelve lagoons, which the local people actually refer to as ‘eyes’. You’re allowed to freely swim in some of these fresh water lagoons during your holidays too.
Beaches in Punta Cana
Playa Bavaro: Punta Cana holidays have over 30 miles of coastline, so it’s not surprising that it’s actually been divided into six different beaches. Of those six, Bavaro beach is one of the biggest and most popular. It has much a similar look as the other beaches along this idyllic stretch of coastline that is namely, soft white sand and calm turquoise waters. The water in this area is also protected by a natural coral reef, making for safe swimming for children on family holidays.
Playa Juanillo: This beach is often famed for its outstanding cleanliness. When you see the virginal white sands and crystal clear waters, you’ll understand how this stunning beach achieved its Blue Flag status.
Playa Macao: This powder-soft beach has one thing which sets it apart from many of the other beaches during holidays in the Dominican Republic – its light golden sand! Beaches in the Dominican Republic are generally of the white variety, but Playa Maco has a golden shoreline, complete with a stunning mountainous backdrop too.
Restaurants in Punta Cana
Serai: This authentic restaurant has a real focus on cooking everything from scratch – there’s even a variety of cakes all home-cooked to a traditional recipe. But the main focus is on Indian and Asian food, such as Thai Green Curry, Lamb Biryani and Chicken Satay. It’s a fantastic way to treat yourself, even if you’re on all inclusive holidays in Punta Cana.
The Jellyfish: Quite off the beaten track, this beachfront restaurant is at the end of an unmade road. However, while the location may be fairly remote, the decor is the epitome of modern, urbane sophistication. From the smooth, polished wooden floors to the sleek glossy tables, this is certainly a dining experience to be treasured during your holidays in Punta Cana. The menu is fantastic too, with quite a focus on fresh seafood like lobster, crab and grilled squid.
Akai: This sushi restaurant makes the most of the fact that the seafood you’ll eat on holidays in Dominican Republic is often exceptionally fresh. However, what makes Akai even more unique is the fact that it fuses tropical ingredients like pineapple, papaya and banana with classic sushi flavours of seaweed and wine-soaked white rice.
Nightlife in Punta Cana
All inclusive drinks: Much of the nightlife on Dominican Republic holidays tends to be focused on the many hotels offering all inclusive holidays, and there are over fifty on Punta Cana holidays, so you can imagine that your evening entertainment is more than adequately catered for. The main hotels have nightly discos and a variety of bars to choose from, so you can enjoy a few cool cocktails in a safe and relaxing environment.
Clubbing holidays: There are quite a number of very lively independent clubs outside of the hotel area. Imagine Nightclub deserves a special mention, for its castle-like entrance which houses four peacefully-lit caverns. Whereas Mangu opts for an all out party vibe rather than a chilled-out ambiance, it’s a place where the flashing lights meets up well with pulsing trance and techno. Prices are pretty cheap too.
Shopping in Punta Cana
Stall shopping: Punta Cana holidays don’t have a huge number of shops selling big name brands in modern, air-conditioned surroundings. However, what you will find on holidays here is a number of lively stalls selling utterly authentic, locally produced items. Look out for the vibrant Dominican artwork and hand-carved wooden figurines and ornaments. The jewellery here is often a great buy too, as much of it features the crystalline amber which is indigenous to the island. Bartering is actually encouraged too, so if you’re prepared to haggle it’s highly likely you’ll be able to bag yourself some unique items for very cheap prices.
