Punta Cana is located at the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic (a country that shares an island with Haiti). It has 20 miles of turquoise ocean and world class, palm tree lined beaches. That means plenty of space to swim and snorkel, or plenty of places to relax with a cute little umbrella in your drink.
Tropical temps average around 77 -80 degrees F though it can get much warmer. So pack your flip-flops and forget about snow gear for a while.
Punta Cana is home plenty of places to swim including a unique natural wonder, the Hoyo Azul, a sinkhole filled with crystal clear blue water. Your visit can also include a jungle hike or zip line tour in your excursion.
Punta Cana is also one of the few places where you can satisfy indulgent cravings by visiting both a chocolate factory and a cigar factory.
The majority of the hotels are all-inclusive style. When you travel, if you like everything taken care of for you except for a few special activities, this island spot should be high on your list of places to consider.
