Punta Cana is one of the Caribbean’s premier tourist destinations. The white sand beaches and azure waters of the Caribbean combine with the friendly people and catchy tropical rhythms of the Dominican Republic to make this vacation paradise a hot spot for international tourism. Here are five of the top five all-inclusive Punta Cana tours.
One of the most popular tours in Punta Cana, the Saona Palmera tour takes you to the gorgeous Saona Island. Enjoy this true Caribbean oasis in the middle of the sea. Take a swim, show off your volleyball skills, take a siesta under the palm trees and savor in the culinary delights of a delicious Dominican lunch buffet and open bar. Depending on your group, your trip will include a ride in a speedboat one way and a catamaran the other. Along the way, take a stop to cool off in a natural pool full of starfish in the middle of the Caribbean Sea. Heading back, you’ll have the chance to check out a few local souvenir shops.
The Outback Safari tour allows you an intimate view of rural life in the Dominican Republic. Venture out of the hotel zone for a wonderful encounter with the tropical countryside and the people who live there. You’ll be able to visit a local school and learn about the Dominican educational system, visit a family home and their small cacao and coffee plantation, savor the exquisite Caribbean flavors of a typical Dominican lunch as well as visit a small ranch where you’ll be able to observe crocodiles and large iguanas up-close. Afterwards, journey down the mountain to a beautiful white sand beach for a little boogie boarding and/or sweet, tropical siesta.
Catamaran and Side By Side 4×4 Adventure
The perfect combination of all-terrain adventure and nautical bliss, the Catamaran Side by Side 4×4 Adventure is a thrilling excursion into the best of both worlds: the fascinating seascapes of the Caribbean Sea and the impressive landscapes of the Punta Cana countryside. Take a 4×4 down the rugged jungle terrain on your way to a pristine beach as well as the “Ojos Indigenas” (Indigenous Eyes) Eco-Park for a refreshing dip in a fresh water lagoon. Once you’ve revved it up, wind it down on a relaxing catamaran trip to the spectacular Playa Blanca beach and a natural pool in the middle of the Caribbean Sea. Includes a delicious lunch and drinks.
Santo Domingo City Tour
Amazing as it may seem, this is where it all started. The Santo Domingo City Tour takes you on a fascinating journey through the very first city created by the Spanish Conquistadors upon their arrival to what they considered to be the West Indies. Today, over 500 years later, Santo Domingo is a bustling city with many attractions to delight visitors looking for some cultural immersion. Explore the very first cathedral of the Americas, take a stroll through the Colonial Zone full of monuments and museums or pay a visit to the Christopher Columbus lighthouse (great place for a selfie) as well as the popular pedestrian walkway known as “El Conde”. Includes lunch at a typical Dominican restaurant in the heart of Santo Domingo. Drinks not included.
What do you get when you combine the best activities in all of Punta Cana and combine them into one place? Scape Park is a natural theme park that encompasses over 1 million square meters of awe-inducing Caribbean beauty. Here you’ll be able to combine numerous activities into one fun-filled day of awesomeness. Looking for adventure? Swoop down from the heights on an exciting zip line course with spectacular views of the park or go on a buggy ride and discover the natural wonders that make this park so special. Looking to cool off? Take a dive into the world-famous Hoyo Azul or go for a swim in the refreshing waters of the Las Ondas sinkhole. With caves, horseback riding and even a cruise, there’s more than enough to please any type of Caribbean adventurer. Includes a full lunch and one drink. Some activities have an additional fee.
