Punta Cana, a tropical Eden, a fabulous destination. Punta Cana is the region located at the furthest eastern point of the Dominican Republic, known for its gorgeous white sand beaches, its luxurious resorts, and its tropical vibe. The Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park and Reserve (Reserva Ecologica Ojos Indigenas) is a 1,500-acre area owned and operated by the Punta Cana Ecological Foundation. It consists of lowland subtropical forest with twelve freshwater lakes. The whole place is dedicated to conservation and scientific research as well as recreation. Historians discovered that the Taíno Indians, former inhabitants of the island, referred to the lakes as “eyes” (ojos in Spanish) because of their distinctive shape and formation. Numerous exhibits describe the cultural and natural history of the island to all its visitors. They can visit an iguana habitat, a sugarcane exhibit, or a petting zoo with many animals that are common in the Dominican Republic.
Catamaran Tours Punta Cana offer so much more than just a ride. Their specialty is creating memories that will last a lifetime through an unforgettable snorkeling trip. These tours are perfect for weddings, birthdays, corporate events, and other special occasions. The fleet consists of several different catamarans – Teresa, Santa Maria, Forever Teresa, and Maite. Each watercraft has plenty of space to maximize the fun. Semi-private tours are also available, which means that there will be no more than 25 passengers aboard at one time. The catamaran staff will ensure that all customers get their proper mask and fin size for snorkeling, and a special platform is there for easy access to the catamaran from the water.
With multiple locations all over the Caribbean and South America, ChocoMuseo seeks to educate tourists about the process of chocolate making in areas of the world where the sweet stuff is produced. In Punta Cana, ChocoMuseo is located on the same spot as Don Lucas’ Cigar Factory, in Bávaro. Activities include an exhibit on the history of chocolate making, a visit of the museum’s ‘bean to bar’ factory, samples of various chocolate products, a gift shop, and the opportunity to attend a chocolate making workshop. It’s all very hard work!
Punta Cana is also a golfer’s destination, with 10 courses located all along the strip, a seaside escape with luxurious marinas and fine dining, and a wellness corner home to the country’s top spas, including the only Six Senses in the Caribbean. Wherever you settle on this brilliant white Punta Cana coastline–counting 11 Blue Flag certified beaches in its inventory–go beach hopping to enjoy its full splendor. From scenic surf-hub Macao and Bávaro’s hipster beaches Corales and Cortecito–lined with shops, water sports, and beachfront bars–to secluded Juanillo, among others. Spend a day away from the sand and you’ll find a myriad of inland adventures. Cool off in fresh water azure cenotes and lagoons tucked inside forests at Ojos Indígenas and Scape Park, where the family’s tweens can also enjoy ziplines and caving expeditions. Explore the lush Dominican countryside on an off-road safari, tumbling past roadside meat shops, and sugar cane plantations. Along the way, visit the country’s top pilgrimage site at the Basílica Nuestra Señora de la Altagracia, and feel the DR’s deep spiritual roots. Searching for airport transfer Punta Cana?

This excursion has it all, it is actually a combination of three different excursions: horseback riding, truck safari and Island tour and if that wasn’t enough you also get to visit a magnificent natural waterfall. Samana is a peninsula in the northeastern part of the country just 30 minutes away by plane from Punta Cana and one of my all time favorite parts of the Dominican Republic. Your transport from the Samana airport will be safari trucks which will take you through the mountainous terrain of the Peninsula for you to experience the Dominican culture outside your hotel. Later, once off the truck you will mount a horse for a 30 minute ride to “El Salto del Limon” one of the most beautiful and famous waterfalls in the entire country and will have time to cool off in it’s pristine waters.
