Nov 18, 2019

As if you need a reason to visit 80-degree temperatures, endless sunshine, and the warm waters lapping onto the white-sand beaches of Punta Cana, it’s also a great place to spend the holidays. Here are the top 5 reasons to pack your swimsuit and sunscreen and visit the beautiful east coast of the Dominican Republic this holiday season.

Quality Time with Family

Punta Cana is famous for its incredible all-inclusive accommodations which are perfect for large groups and families traveling together. There are countless options for kid-friendly hotels for kids, teens and parents to enjoy. If you’re traveling with younger kids, the Nickelodeon Resort is an all-time favorite. There are onsite accommodations to please family members of all ages all along this stunning coast.

A Romantic Rendezvous

Within many of the all-inclusive resorts Punta Cana has to offer are world-class spas and adults-only havens. Secrets Cap Cana offers one of the best adults-only getaways with a state-of-the-art spa. This holiday season is the perfect time to reconnect with your sweetheart by getting pampered in paradise.

Recharge Before the New Year

Why not shed the exceedingly high expectations that come with New Years and recharge, unplug and relax on a Punta Cana beach? Whether you choose to travel with a loved one or family, there’s no better way to set the tone for the new year than kicking back on Punta Cana’s 30-miles of beachfront. Before it’s too late, pack the sandals and set the out of office message.

Reconnect with Nature

Get the new year off to a good start and reconnect with the beauty and simplicity of nature. Before the hustle and bustle of 2020 sets in, take a moment to look around and appreciate the beauty Punta Cana has to offer. Punta Cana is home to Scape Park, a lush rainforest with endless adventurous activities to try. Within Scape Park is Hoyo Azul or “Blue Hole” which is a refreshing natural cool spring 45-feet deep. The spring sits upon a 246-foot-tall limestone cliff covered in lush vegetation. It’s a hike to get there, but the orchid garden and turquoise waters make it worth every step.

Vitamin D

When the sun hides away during the wintertime, it’s crucial to get an extra dose of vitamin D during the winter months. Luckily, Punta Cana has one of the Caribbean’s longest stretches of coastline offering over 30 miles of beach to relax on and soak in the sun. Among visitor favorites include the world-famous Playa Bávaro which is peppered with dream-like palm trees and a colorful coral reef off the coastline. If you’re more inclined to get in the water, Playa Blanca is a hub of water sports and local street food. Other favorites include Playa Juanillo, Playa Macao and of course, Playa Uvero Alto. 

Before the new year kicks in, and before the holidays are completely through, make your Punta Cana getaway a priority. The sunshine awaits and the possibilities are endless. Contact a Travel Advisor to get your Punta Cana vacation started.
