What to do in Punta Cana

Take a walk on the beach, swim in the sea and enjoy perfect weather.

Visit Manatí Park, particularly if travelling with children, where you can see shows featuring dolphins and manatees.

Travel to Altos de Chavón, an interesting riverside town with a Mediterranean feel and lush tropical vegetation. Thanks to its beauty, it has become a base for a number of artists.

Engage in all kinds of water sports: Scuba diving, windsurfing, sea kayaking or yachting.  Land lovers can play a round at any of the region's golf courses.

Area companies organise shark dives, and big-game fishing is also an option. The most highly sought after fish are sailfish, mahi mahi, barracudas and blue marlin.

Sail to Saona Island and explore the crystal-clear waters and coral reefs of the Bayahibé National Park.

For nightlife options, the Bávaro beach area and its famous clubs are ideal. In any event, all of the large hotels have their own clubs and casinos for people who prefer to stay in the hotel.

Activities and Places of Interest

Nature and cultural tours
Companies specialising in nature treks provide an opportunity to explore the land in buggies, large open-top trucks and all-terrain vehicles.
Visitors may choose among the various routes and delve into the rainforest, visit country homes, traverse fields used for growing tropical crops or visit a spectacular deserted beach.
Guided horse rides across vast strips of beach are also an option.

Golf 
Punta Cana is the epicentre of golf in the Caribbean, with 12 courses currently operating and designs by prestigious golfers/designers such as Nick Price, Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo, Tom Fazio, P.B. Dye and José Pepe Gancedo.
The following golf courses are highly recommended: Punta Espada, La Cana, The Legacy, Cocotal, Corales, Las Iguanas, Punta Blanca, White Sands.

Ponce de León Home/Museum
A town house built by Juan Ponce de León in the San Rafael de Yuma region just over 500 years ago, where he lived with his wife Leonor and four children (year 1505). Ponce de León founded a prosperous lumber export business, moved to Puerto Rico, where he was named governor, and finally settled in Florida. This medieval-style house and plantation is today a museum.

Bávaro Beaches
This is, undoubtedly, one of the most famous and highly esteemed beaches in both the Dominican Republic and the world. Bathed in the Caribbean Sea's crystal-clear turquoise waters, the UNESCO declared the Bávaro beach one of the world's best beaches, thanks primarily to its stunningly white, fine sands and crystal-clear waters. Along with other neighbouring beaches, it forms part of what has been dubbed the Coconut Coast, which covers almost forty kilometres of uninterrupted white sands.

Fun Fun Cave
One of the country's largest caves, Fun Fun Cave has a 7 kilometre long river flowing inside it. The countless cave paintings on its walls represent one of its non-adventure attractions. The trek through the cave descends to a depth of 15-17 metres. Visitors set out on horseback and walk to the entrance of the cave, located in the Los Haitises National Park.
The Capote Ranch organises cave tours with caving equipment.

Ojos Indígenas Ecological Park
Located on Punta Cana's southernmost tip, the Ojos Indígenas Ecological Park covers 1,500 acres of tropical forest. The tour winds its way down green tunnels, home to over 500 species of plants, and ends with a refreshing dip in one of the park's eleven freshwater lagoons. Historians have discovered that the Taíno Indians, the island's pre-Columbian inhabitants, referred to the lagoons as "eyes" due to their distinctive shape. 
A catamaran ride is highly recommended.

Manatí Park
This incredible theme park covers 130,000 square metres and houses gardens brimming with orchids and tropical plants. Here you can experience nature and discover the Dominican Republic's flora and fauna. During your time at Manatí Park, you can enjoy several different shows, including tropical bird and reptile displays, a parrot and dancing horse show and a once in a lifetime opportunity to swim with dolphins.

Major Towns

Bávaro
Bávaro is a municipal district in Punta Cana belonging to the Dominican Republic. It is the tourist destination that attracts the greatest number of tourists and locals, thanks to its many 5-star resort hotels.
The area has several clubs, including Imagine, Mangú and Pachá, which liven up the tourists' nights out.

It also has numerous sightseeing draws, some of which are genuinely enormous, such as Manatí Park in Bávaro, a water park with manatees, dolphins and other kinds of animals.
Tourists prefer the beach area around Punta Cana, as the prices are more affordable for the international crowd. However, Bávaro keeps the exclusiveness and elegance that earned it the title of the Caribbean's best beach intact.

Higüey
Higüey is the capital of the Dominican province La Altagracia. A stone's throw from Punta Cana, this city is home to over 160,000 inhabitants, most of who work at the tourist resorts and hotels in Punta Cana and the beaches around Bávaro.

Higüey is approximately 50 kilometres from Bávaro and offers insight into what life is really like in the Dominican Republic, outside the luxury and comforts of Punta Cana's large hotels. Higüey gives us a chance to interact with Dominicans, get to know their customs, speak with ordinary people and grasp a deeper understanding of their way of life.

Higüey's most emblematic location is the basilica, home to Our Lady of La Altagracia, worshipped as the guardian of all Dominicans.
