Why go to Punta Cana

Tropical beaches, colourful culture and year-round sun – a Punta Cana holiday is everything you could want from a Caribbean experience. If you want to flop on soft white sands and have the option of seeking out history and adventure, Punta Cana could be just the ticket.

Magnificent stretches of sand line the Dominican Republic’s idyllic south-east coast – Punta Cana’s sun seekers’ playground. Here, rum cocktails are brought straight to your hammock as you while away the long lazy days. Luxurious all-inclusive resorts are the order of the day here, showing off everything from tropical wildlife-rich gardens and top-class international restaurants to suites overlooking the turquoise sea.

But this Caribbean island isn’t only about the beaches. The indigenous Taino called their home “the land of the high mountains” – a name befitting of the dramatic karst mountain interior, where waterfalls, rainforests, and caves are all waiting to be explored. You’ll find several National Parks within easy reach of Punta Cana, with hundreds of birds – from frigates to hummingbirds – as well as butterflies and rare plants.
