Things To Do In Punta Cana

With miles of beautiful beaches, spending time under the sun is one of the most popular activities in Punta Cana. Some of our favorites include Macao Beach, El Cortecito, Bavaro Beach and Areno Gordo Beach. No matter which beach you choose for unwinding in the warm breeze, you'll enjoy picturesque white sand and sparkling turquoise water.

But if you had more in mind than working on your tan, don't worry. There are many other things to do in Punta Cana, including playing golf on one of more than a dozen courses. Many have been created by the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo and Tom Fazio, among other distinguished designers, so get ready for a challenge. Thanks to its coastal setting, you'll also enjoy gorgeous views on just about every course.

Other activities in Punta Cana can help you get in touch with Mother Nature. Find over 500 species of exotic plants and 11 natural lagoons at the Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park. If you enjoy bird watching, head to Manati Park. It's home to a variety of tropical birds and reptiles (and there's even a parrot show). For a bit of cultural history, visit the House Museum of Ponce de Leon. The famous explorer lived there in 1505, and today it is preserved as a museum where you can admire its Medieval architecture.
