Punta Cana-Dominican Republic

Punta Cana, located on the east coast of the Dominican Republic, is renowned for its dazzling powdery white sand beaches, its romantic settings, and its world-class golf courses. One of the largest and fastest growing tourist destinations in the Caribbean, Punta Cana is a popular vacation destination for travellers from all around the world. With so much to do, see, and experience in this island paradise, it's no surprise why Punta Cana continues to be a favourite holiday hot spot.


The East Coast shores of Punta Cana and the Altagracia province have been consistently ranked as some of the best beaches in the world. Boasting a seemingly endless supply, Punta Cana's ribbon of sand stretches on for miles and miles. These spectacular beaches are lapped by calm turquoise waters, which are perfect for enjoying a variety of fun water sports. Enjoy swimming, kayaking, sailing, and snorkelling, or take a fun catamaran trip or leisurely boat ride and sail out to sea. Diving is another popular activity as many caves and sunken ships can be found in the surrounding area.


Punta Cana is also considered a golf mecca and is the largest single destination for golf in the world. Home to over a dozen golf courses, many of them designed by legendary golf greats such as Jack Nicklaus, Nick Price, Nick Faldo, Tom Fazio, P.B. Dye and José-Pepe-Gancedo, Punta Cana is an ideal destination for a golf vacation.


Tourist attractions abound from ecological wonders to cultural centres. Spend a day exploring the exotic flora and fauna of the Dominican Republic at the Indigenous Eyes Ecologic Park or the Manati Park, or revel in a thrilling jeep safari as you travel through tropical jungles, farmland, and scenic countryside. Learn a bit about the culture and history at the House Museum of Ponce de León or visit Higüey, the capital of the province. Visit the Fun Fun Cave for a day of exciting adventure as you horseback ride through the jungle, descend 55 feet into the entrance of Los Haitises National Park and explore the cave with its 4.5 mile long river and incredible display of cave paintings.


When the sun goes down, discover many more options for fun and entertainment. Experience the sizzling nightlife while you dine at fabulous restaurants, check out the lively bars, or dance the night away at a disco. The night only settles down when you do.


More than just beautiful beaches, Punta Cana offers an endless array of fun and entertainment. Book your Punta Cana vacation with Sunwing and get ready for the vacation of a lifetime.
