Places To Go In Punta Cana

There are times in life—maybe it’s in the middle of traffic, or waiting for your cappuccino, or half way through another report meeting—that you want to get away to a place where the sand is soft and sun is bright, and the only thing you have to worry about whether or not to order one more pina colada to sip upon on by the Dominican Republic shore. It’s time to lay out in the sunshine amongst palm trees that reach out to the breezy sea. Leave those thoughts and stresses at your Punta Cana hotel, and to remember what it feels like to be free, body and spirit.

Things to Do in Punta Cana

Perhaps it’s unfair to ask about things to do in Punta Cana aside from simple pleasures, but there are zip lines that can beat your heart double pace, crab dinners that will make your taste buds sing, and cave expeditions that show you a universe only thought about in fairy tales.

The crystal clear water at Bavaro Beach beckons you to glide through the turquoise underworld and orchids point the way to the lagoon of Hoyo Azul, a secluded gem in the Scape Park forest. Like a good song playing low, sunsets in Punta Cana take everything lovely about life and allow you to savory it slowly. You can sit back and watch the grapefruit pink colors stretch across the sky as it fades to night, with the stars peeking through the palm trees as old friends. A beautiful sunset can give you the sense of completion rarely found anywhere else. Each day the sun rises, each day it falls; it is a stanza that repeats itself, and allows you to take part in world’s quiet poem.

Punta Cana vacations make up those daydreams you keep thinking about when you look out the window. It’s an escape, it’s a refuge, and it’s a magical place where those Punta Cana activities get you back to the basics of what’s important: good food, pretty sights, and a healthy sense of being.
