Punta Cana is blessed with warm, tranquil waters and beautiful white sands, and it has been a favorite vacation spot among world travelers for decades. Punta Cana is considered one the best golf destinations in the world, with several courses designed by world-class golfers, including Corales by Tom Fazio and La Cana by P.B. Dye. Visitors should not miss the lagoons of the Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park, a luscious nature preserve that featured guided tours as well as unsupervised exploring. There, you'll see endangered species such as the ridgeway hawk, one of the rarest animals in the world.
Punta Cana is the resort capital of the Dominican Republic, with many all-inclusive resorts to choose from. Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ) is one of the busiest in the Caribbean, with regular flights to most major cities in the Western Hemisphere. Transportation to and from the airport is provided by resort and private shuttles and taxicabs. There are several major car rental agencies at the airport.
The nightclubs of Punta Cana start to fill up around midnight, a few hours after dinner. Merengue music is king, but most clubs play a mix of rock, salsa, and reggae and contemporary pop songs. The local music is very rich and offers styles to suit any taste.
