One of the places to visit, within the tourism options in Punta Cana, is Cap Cana, an area known as “the jewel” or “the best kept secret” of Punta Cana, which is not very developed in terms of tourism or urban development, but promises to be a paradise and one of the best places to vacation in the Caribbean.
The plans for Cap Cana are great, since this area is not only beautiful for its vegetation but also has a very good geographical position that allows it to have coasts on the Atlantic Ocean to the north and on the Caribbean Sea to the south.
Cap Cana will offer tourists a warm sea, with transparent waters and normal waves; white sand formed with little debris; incredible resorts and hotels to stay -many of which have private access to the beach-; restaurants and night spots; and the best alternatives in terms of water sports and other activities to enjoy on vacation.
Another place to visit while on vacation in Punta Cana, another option for tourism in Punta Cana, is the village of Altos del Chavón, a destination located southwest of Punta Cana, in the province of La Romana. For an unforgettable trip you can rent a car with Rent Point or any other company in Punta Cana that offers luxury cars.
Altos del Chavón is a very particular locality; more precisely speaking, Altos del Chavón is the recreation of a typical medieval Mediterranean village in Central America. Its construction was the initiative of the American businessman Charles Bludhorn in the mid seventies.
The town of Altos del Chavón, near Punta Cana, is built mainly with stones; it has an important amphitheater of Greco-Roman style with a capacity for seven thousand people; the Altos del Chavón Regional Archaeological Museum; and a School of Fashion Design, digital and graphic art; and a Cultural Center.
From the village of Altos del Chavón you have a magnificent view of the Chavón River, which runs next to it; this river has been the setting for the filming of important movies such as Rambo and Apocalypse Now. The good thing about it is that tourists can not only appreciate it but also navigate it in boats, with capacity for 20 people, and even do activities such as river cruises.
Another site similar to the Manatí Park, also in Punta Cana, is the Seaquarium, a space that has the objective of providing a service of entertainment and coexistence with the marine nature in the Dominican Republic.
Seaquarium is also located in the Bavaro-Punta Cana area, and is a complete half-day excursion. There you can enjoy two activities, always supervised by professional divers; one of them is known as Sea-Trek and the other Snuba Adventure.
The first consists of a walk under the sea, at a safe depth, where you can see beautiful colorful fish, appreciate a sunken submarine and have fun in a “zero gravity” environment. The second option is a mix between snorkeling and scuba diving, and is safe even for children as young as 8 years old.
Another tourist site in Punta Cana is Las Cuevas de Borbón, a group of more than 40 caverns with cave art, located in the towns of Borbón and Pomier. These are one of the most important groups of caverns in the Caribbean, where you can find Taino paintings and petroglyphs.
Saona Island is another alternative for tourism in Punta Cana, which is located south of it; this is an excellent destination to spend a day on a beach other than those of Punta Cana. There are excursions that take you from Punta Cana by catamaran or boat, and that offer a delicious lunch on the island.
To the northwest of Punta Cana are the provinces of Samaná and Hato Mayor, whose territories include the Bay of Samaná, where the enchanting island of Cayo Levantado is located.
Both the island and the bay are two places that are recommended as tourism options if you are on vacation in Punta Cana because they have no waste.
On the other hand, Cayo Levantado Island is a true tropical paradise of one square kilometer with white-sand beaches, turquoise waters, coconut trees and everything that nature can provide to make this a perfect place to enjoy the sun and the sea.
Cayo Levantado Island has as alternatives the rest on its beaches, the practice of aquatic sports, the walks along the coasts, or the outings and the tasting of typical dishes of the region.
Between the months of January and March is when the humpback whales (who come to the Caribbean Sea to give birth and look for a mate in the warm water) arrive to the coasts of Samaná Bay; they come from the seas of Iceland, Greenland and Canada, and every summer their arrival is an impressive spectacle that surprises tourists in a good way.
There are many alternatives for tourism in Punta Cana, some in Punta Cana itself and others a little farther away. Whatever your travel plan is, it is advisable to take them into account since none of them has any waste to be known, let alone enjoyed.
Santo Domingo, capital of the Dominican Republic, is a tourist alternative for those visiting Punta Cana on vacation. It is almost a must visit if you are in the Dominican Republic and is a place full of magic, history and romance.
Santo Domingo was the first city of America after the discovery and has several points of interest to know, among which are the Cathedral of Santa Maria la Menor (which is believed to contain the remains of Christopher Columbus), the Palace of Diego Columbus, churches of the 26th century as San Nicolas and San Francisco, the Museum of the Royal Houses and the Walls of the original Spanish city, among others.
If you are sightseeing in Santo Domingo, you can also enjoy a wide variety of restaurants and night spots, as well as excellent shopping options.
If you choose to enjoy a few days of tourism in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, travelers will find that it has everything they need to spend unforgettable days enjoying outings, tours, activities and more.
