Holiday In Punta Cana

If you’ve ever thought “What my next holiday needs is crystal clear waters and a spattering of Latino celebrities,” move Punta Cana to the top of your travel bucket list. 

During your time along the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic you’ll hardly have to put on pants—um, we mean between your snorkel outings and sandcastle building you’re bound to stay in swimwear, so get your mind out of the gutter.

The region is mostly occupied by high-end resorts so big they nearly deserve their own post code, but the area’s banana plantations and ecological parks are also pretty popular. By the time you leave, you’ll be sun-soaked and know how to smoke a stogie with the best of them (if you’re into that sort of thing). Book one of the top lastminute.com.au Punta Cana packages, and you’ll be headed toward turquoise tides and swaying coconut palms in no time.

Things to Do in Punta Cana

Any Punta Cana holiday worth its salt includes some good old-fashioned sun worshipping. OK, maybe a lot of it. What we’re saying is, prepare to wash sand out of your toes and…other places. Snorkelling excursions, dance cruises and kiteboarding will help you earn your water adventurer badge like a champion. Work out the knots in your muscles with elaborate spa treatments. You’re on holiday, you deserve it!

A landlubber, are we? Punta Cana tour companies are waiting to whisk you away on an exciting dune buggy adventure or safari tour via mega truck ride. If you’re afraid of heights, put on your big kid trousers and scream your way down a zip-line—it’s time you expanded your horizons, eh? You can always rely on shuttles, or book a Punta Cana car hire from lastminute.com.au to create your own schedule.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

If you can tear yourself away from resort living and guided excursions (leaving the good life is hard, we get it), there are heaps of chances for shopping. Go ahead, bring back something to make your coworkers jealous of your time in a tropical nirvana. Pick up some goodies at Bi2JH2O Artisanal Shopping Plaza or max out your MasterCard (just kidding, you would never) at the Palma Real Shopping Village.

Your all-inclusive resort is bound to serve up some fine dining just steps from your room. But it would be a shame to leave Punta Cana without tasting some local delicacies. Get your hands on some Bandera (meat, beans, rice, and fried bananas) and sweet habichuelas con dulce, STAT!

With your skin still warm from a day under the sun and a quick nap under your belt, you’ll be ready for Punta Cana nightlife. Most discos and clubs are at major resorts. Thanks to the money you saved by scoring one of the cheapest packages to Punta Cana, you can buy a round for the hen or stag party at the bar.

What’s Next?

Save big on your trip to the Dominican Republic when you book airfares and hotels together with Punta Cana holiday packages. We know, you want to save your money for the piña coladas…and you should. Package deals to Punta Cana leave plenty of dinero for your favourite splurges!
