Caribbean Dominican Republic

Best Luxury Hotels In Punta Cana

At the far eastern reaches of the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana is found where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. Head to its Coconut Coast for the fanciest residences and try some popular activities such as zip-lining, windsurfing, kayaking and sailing. Shallow shores and plankton-free waters ensure the sea is especially clear and blue — ideal for snorkelling and relaxed bathing. Add to this, powder-soft white sands and locally produced rum, and you have a recipe for a paradisaical, quintessential Caribbean getaway. And when night falls you can catch a show at Coco Bongo or dance the night away in a cave-based club.
