Your guide to Punta Cana

All About Punta Cana

Punta Cana sits at the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic, where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. It’s renowned for its soft white beaches, the longest in the Caribbean, and laid-back atmosphere. If you’re looking to get in or near the water, the town provides ample opportunity to lounge on the beach, play in the waves, scuba dive among reefs and shipwrecks, or go kayaking, fishing, windsurfing, or sailing. Away from its crystal-clear surrounding waters, the town has a number of upscale dining, luxury spa, and award-winning golf course opportunities to take advantage of, or you could head out into the jungle on one of the many excursions offered here. Relaxation, adventure, and exquisite Caribbean-inspired food can all be on the docket at this tropical paradise.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Punta Cana

The Dominican Republic experiences warm temperatures throughout the year. The spring months of February through April prove the best time to look for vacation rentals in Punta Cana, as the drier conditions will allow you to get the most out of your time here. The higher likelihood of sun-filled days during this time means you can confidently plan outdoor excursions, such as golfing, ziplining, or a jungle visit, without fear of rain spoiling the fun.

The lack of precipitation during this time also provides the clearest ocean conditions of the year, perfect for diving, snorkeling, and other water activities. The iconic tradition of Carnival hits its stride at the beginning of February, when parades, costumed dancers, musicians, and dancers fill the streets in this celebration of culture, food, and music. From June through the end of November, Punta Cana experiences an increase in rainfall that coincides with the Atlantic hurricane season but still enjoys Jazz Nights until late fall, where musicians perform on select nights each year.

Top things to do in Punta Cana

Boating Experiences

Several local operators offer guided boat tours to match varying tastes and preferences. Hire a boat to explore the shores of a deserted beach in style, swim in a private lagoon, scuba dive among shipwrecks, or snorkel in the Caribbean.

Isla Saona

Just off the coast of Punta Cana is Isla Saona, a protected nature reserve that is part of Cotubanamá National Park. With pristine white-sand beaches, natural swimming holes, and picture-perfect palm trees, this island getaway is an experience not soon forgotten. Isla Saona is also one of the most important turtle nesting sites in the Dominican Republic.

Hoyo Azul

Hoyo Azul — the Blue Hole — is a natural swimming hole formed out of limestone, nestled deep in the jungle. While getting here without a guide is possible, a guided experience is ideal to appreciate the area thoroughly. Hike through the dense jungle before cooling off with a refreshing swim, or take advantage of one of the ziplines that also ends with a dip in the Hoyo Azul.
