The second largest country in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic, has fascinating landscapes, cities full of history such as its capital, Santo Domingo, and some of the most spectacular beaches in the world, without forgetting its people, who are characterized by their hospitality and kindness. Among its essentials is Punta Cana, the perfect place to spend an unforgettable fall.

Another highly recommended is Bávaro beach, declared by UNESCO as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world; here, surrounded by a beautiful landscape of white sand and coral reefs, you will find wonderful resorts to stay in and restaurants to try the exquisite cuisine of the place.Punta Cana offers the traveler some of the most spectacular beaches in the world. 

Beyond the beaches, Punta Cana offers incredible experiences for adventure lovers, such as Scape Park, a park where you can enjoy a multitude of activities: water zip line jumping over a cliff, snorkeling in tropical waters or, and highly recommended, swim in the Hoyo Azul cenote, very special because it is located at the bottom of a cliff and its waters are bathed in a beautiful turquoise blue. At this point, it is worth remembering that, after the beaches, the great attraction of Punta Cana is the jungle,that can be known through an interesting hiking route on your own or with a guide, if what you want is to know in depth the varied fauna and flora of the place; there are also many who enjoy bird watching and horseback riding.

The Ojos Indígenas Ecological Reserve is another of the places that cannot be missed on a visit to Punta Cana; Its name is due to the fact that numerous remains have been found that indicate that the first inhabitants of the Dominican Republic emerged here, among caves and underground rivers. On a visit to Punta Cana, knowing this reserve, and especially the Guama lagoon, is essential.

Other plans to enjoy Punta Cana

If you still have time or you haven’t gotten used to relaxing walks on the beach and activities in the middle of nature, a very interesting proposal is a visit to the Chocomuseo, very popular thanks to the opportunity it offers to taste different types of chocolate and show in a wonderful guided tour the history of Dominican cocoa.

Another highly recommended activity is to take a catamaran excursion from Bayahibe to Isla Saona,whose natural beauty is enviable, especially highlighting its paradisiacal virgin beaches and its exuberant exotic vegetation of the area, such as palm and coconut trees, but also the variety of animal species; Such is its importance that its fauna and flora are protected, since the island is part of the Parque Nacional del Este.
