Have you ever swam with dolphins? When you book cheap hotels in Punta Cana, know that this experience of a lifetime is definitely doable. The island of Hispaniola is occupied on the east by the nation of the Dominican Republic, so travelers can enjoy ancestral Taino culture and relax under the warm sun cooled by fresh Caribbean breezes. If you are after a luxury experience, rest assured there are lots of resorts in Dominican Republic with 5-star ratings, offering the best for your tropical paradise getaway.
As you experience everything from the high mountainous regions in the northern and central part of the island to the capital city of Santo Domingo on the southern coast, your senses won't know what hit you. The lush mountains smell of clean air, and the sound of local wildlife is thick. If you stay at Dominican Republic resorts right on the beach, you can feel the soft sand on your toes as you sample fresh crustaceans that taste spicy and sweet at the same time. You can also travel to Punta Cana, on the easternmost tip of the island, which is home to an underwater adventure where Flipper waits to take a dip with you. Spend your days exploring the island's many small towns, where you can pick up handcrafted items from the locals or head out to sea and try your luck deep sea fishing. Finish the night in style: take a catamaran to a natural sand barge, and dance and drink the night away in the warm Caribbean surf.
