Make your next international flight a trip to Punta Cana.
Punta Cana is a resort lover’s dream, where you can luxuriate without lifting a finger.
The livin’ is easy in this laidback Dominican Republic destination where the beaches are tranquil, the golf is world-class, and the drinks flow freely. Start with a jaunt down Bavaro Beach. Colorful shacks, packed with souvenirs aplenty, dot the shoreline of this white-sand beach. Flea market finds include cigars, handmade crafts, jewelry, paintings, and rum. Pro tip: Items rarely have price tags, so come ready to haggle. Next, stroll over to Caribbean Street. On this palm-lined stretch, kaleidoscopic storefronts peddle everything from watercolor paintings and silk scarves to beaded necklaces and fine amber jewelry.
Fans of old-world architecture should be sure to swing by Altos de Chavon. This replica 16th-century Mediterranean village houses a 5,000-seat amphitheater with scenic views of the Chavón River. At the art gallery, browse pieces by local makers. Less than an hour from Punta Cana lies Bayahibe, a beach town that promises crystal-clear water and white sand. Visit Saona Island, just off the coast, for snorkeling, or Parque Nacional del Este, a marine park. For something a bit more off beat, visit ChocoMuseo. Two-hour workshops teach guests how to turn local cacao beans into chocolate treats. Afterward, indulge your sweet tooth with decadent drinks and desserts.
