Punta Cana - Dominican Republic

Town with beach in the north of the island, the main tourist and known point of the Dominican Republic, summer all year.

Many Americans and Brazilians seek this place out to be cheap, with beautiful beaches and great resorts.

Punta Cana, has a more lively nightlife than other cities of the island. There has a club inside a cave, which did not have time to go, but we have seen amazing pictures of the site.

How to get
The best option is to arrive by plane at the international airport of Punta Cana.
If you arrive at Santo Domingo airport, will have 1 hour drive to reach the city of Punta Cana, we went straight to Punta Cana.

Most flights to the island pass through the airport of Panama City, if possible stop for a few hours (connection) to make purchases in the free airport shopping as it is one of the world's largest.


Where to stay

There are several hotels and resorts in this town (most are resorts). What we get, was very good indeed Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa has several restaurants open during the day and the night, the system is all inclusive (lobster have to be paid separately), the only problem is that the hotel is located a bit far from the beach Bavaro, busier place of Punta Cana. But we not feel sorely missed, since we were on honeymoon, it was great. We stayed 5 days there.

What to eat
Seafood, including lobster, the resorts has an excellent menu with typical dishes of local and international.

This hotel has the world's coffee we've ever seen, take a look at video all you have for breakfast.

Parties
The folk festivals roll in all hotels and resorts, many of them have beach parties, like a luau.

Purchases
In all hotels there are days that scrolls a "fair" with many typical items to buy. The main shopping items are: cigars made in the factories of the Island (eg Romeo and Juliet, Monte Cristo.) And a stone found only in the region, called Larimar, "Home" comes from Larissa, (discoverer of the daughter's name stone) and "Sea" sea same, simple lol, they put the stone in toodos kinds of necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

Main attractions
In addition to the beautiful beach and the clear water, you have several tour options the best is to Saona Island (the catamaran leaves the beach of Bayahibe), to Catalina Island through the Altos of Chavon (Rio name and a Medieval City where there is also a golf club lindooo and a curiosity for those who love Michael Jackson, like me, he married this place with Lisa Marie Presley) and the Aquarium of the dolphins in their own city of Punta Cana.

Saona Island was one of the movie's filming locations Pirates of the Caribbean, the tours have food and drinks included with shrimp and sometimes lobsters (delight).

Catalina Island beautiful beach and great place to dive, the tours feature food and beverages included with shrimp and lagostaaaa muitooo :) delight.
