Punta Cana -Dominican Republic Destination Information
Twenty years ago, the area known as Punta Cana was merely an isolated stretch of beach surrounded by a jungle. Today, that area on the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic has blossomed into the country's fastest growing tourism development. The jungle has been transformed into a secluded sector for tourists to enjoy the peace and relaxation that made the islands in the Caribbean famous.
Punta Cana's 20 miles of pearl-white sand beaches merged with sapphire-blue waters creates scenery surpassed by no other. This sparkling gem in the Caribbean not only offers an impeccable ambiance, but also luxurious resorts, fine dining, and a wide variety of activities. Punta Cana features the longest coral reef in the whole island (about 19 miles long). Divers and snorkelers of all experience levels can explore reef caverns and nearby Catalina and Saona Islands. Or, for the truly adventurous, experience the beautiful underwater wonderland on a night dive. For land lovers, there are challenging golf courses, tennis courts, horseback riding, bicycling, or you can soar high above land and water on a parasailing ride.
