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.

Travelling with kids in tow? Punta Cana’s friendly atmosphere helps you feel at home from the start – and by that, we mean a home packed with sun, sea and sand. Teens in particular will be kept busy with horse riding, kitesurfing, white-water rafting and endless snorkelling opportunities. Many hotels are geared up for families too, with sporting facilities, kids’ clubs and shallow swimming pools.

When the sun goes down, Punta Cana knows how to party. You’ll find everything from relaxed beach bars to lively clubs and laid-back local comedores (family run restaurants serving traditional food). And don’t forget to pack your dancing shoes, especially if you’re here in time for Carnival in February – merengue is the soundtrack here.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
