With beyond-belief white-sand beaches, warm wading pools and acres of dense jungle, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic is the epitome of a tropical getaway. Situated where the Atlantic and Caribbean oceans meet, the island offers a multitude of things to do and explore.
Get your 18 holes in before breakfast at the Punta Espada Golf Club, a world-class course with breathtaking ocean views. Continue your relaxation on Punta Cana’s northernmost beach, Uvero Alto, perfect for travelers looking to sink into the sand with a good novel in hand sans a noisy crowd.
If thrill-seeking exploration is more your style, the island’s local banana plantations provide the perfect route for a wind-whipping dune-buggy ride. Or head deep into the jungle for a breathtaking zip-lining excursion.
But if avoiding human contact is your goal (after all, you’ve ventured to a tropical island!), Los Haitises National Park, situated two hours northwest of Punta Cana, is your go-to day trek. The park allows a limited number of tourists to enter on horseback or on a hike, with pictographs, petroglyphs and stunning forests and streams as your reward.
