What Is There To Do On Package Holidays In Punta Cana?

For those opposed to extended beach lounging, Punta Cana offers myriad adventures. Take the horseback riding and zipline tour along the spectacular Anamuya River. Passing a cigar plantation and a ranch on your way, you will finish your foray into the emerald jungle with a Dominican style feast.

Alternatively you can snorkel on the reef among shoals of brightly coloured fish and enjoy a marine show from your scuba diving instructors. Sharks and rays are among the performers. You can even handle the harmless sharks and rays yourself. Make sure you bring your camera.

Have a go at parasailing or ride a dune buggy across the sands at high velocity. Discover freshwater springs and subterranean caves near Macao Beach and don't forget to soak yourself at the celebrated Natural Swimming Pool.

What Is There To See On Weekends In Punta Cana?

The exotic sights of Punta Cana will have you snapping photos all day long and range from monkeys to sharks and rays. Here are some of the most popular attractions:

  • The water sports havens of Playa El Cortecito and Los Corales are so gripping that quieter spots like Playa Arena Grande are too often overlooked. Surfers will be thrilled by the waves on Playa del Macao, while Playa Cabo Engafio is more isolated still and picture postcard perfect.
  • Why not visit Isla Saona for the day. This natural spa soothes all who tread its powder soft sand, while palm trees provide shade from the warmth of the sun. See it all from the ocean on catamaran rides through the gin-clear water, or on snorkelling trips offered by the dive shops to be found onshore.
  • For a slice of eco-friendly travel, discover Puta Cana's Coffee Plantation, where vanilla and cocoa are also grown and get ready to sample their delights. You can chat with local farmers about their organic growing methods. Nearby, you can tour Monkeyland safari-style in a truck and visit an onsite botanical garden.

Eating On Punta Cana City Breaks

African influences are palpable in Punta Cana's cuisine, melding Dominican with Creole in many dishes. Try the crispy flatbreads known as Casabe, which are made from indigenous yucca plants. Flatbreads are topped with delicious ingredients and spritzed with lime. Rice, beans, bananas, pork, chicken and seafood are on the menu in restaurants along the coast.

Try Locrian, which resembles paella, and energy-enhancing Mangu (mashed plantains). Pica Pollo is a popular dish, featuring fried chicken and banana pieces. Coconut sea bass and salmon ceviche are on the menu, along with fresh lobsters which come drenched in butter.

Souvenirs From Punta Cana

Visit the BlueMall to hunt for locally produced goods and foods to take home with you. Friendly vendors offer Caribbean wares at superb prices. Choose from giant shells, jewellery and shark teeth, or pick up local coffee and vanilla to transport the evocative flavours of Punta Cana back home with you. Rum and cigars are the traditional options. Dominican Rum is the basis of every great Cuba Libre and Presidente beer enjoys an international following. The locally made Methuselah rum is multi-award winning and the perfect souvenir of a weekend in Punta Cana.
