Punta Cana-Bavaro, Dominican Republic

Punta Cana/Bavaro

When I close my eyes and think of Punta Cana and Bavaro, I can almost feel the warm Caribbean breeze on my skin and the soft sand between my toes. Punta Cana, on the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic is the place where Dominican tourism emerged and still is, together with Playa Dorado, one of the most popular travel destinations in the country. No matter if you are a spring-breaker dedicated to partying, a retiree looking to relax in the sun or part of a family that loves to build sandcastles in the sand, Punta Cana is a vacationers heaven.

There are few places in the Dominican Republic where I enjoyed so many early morning beach walks as in Punta Cana where every day between 6 and 7 am the glorious sun rises over the sea. A Punta Cana/ Bavaro vacation almost certainly means that you will stay in an all-inclusive resort. more...

Punta Cana-Bavaro Information

The first Dominican Republic resort I stayed at was an all-inclusive on Bavaro beach which is just one of the many fantastic Punta Cana Resorts. At the time I was looking for a sun and beach vacation and did not mind at all that shopping and sightseeing would not be on my itinerary. I had a 5 star beach on my mind and I do recall feeling in heaven upon seeing the turquoise sea, palm trees and endless stretches of white sand.

The all-inclusive experience was also new to me and I liked it! No need to carry cash around all day and everything I needed was always within reach. After a week of pampering I felt rested but at the same time slightly restless. I set out on a wonderful walk along the beach to El Cortecito, a public beach area where I met the local fisherman who brought in their catch of the day. This experience just blew me away. I thought it was romantic and 100% authentic. I went back three times that week, made my first Dominican friends and knew the Dominican Republic would be a place I would return to over and over again.

A lot has changed since that first time. Some world class golf courses, shopping malls, excursions companies, resorts, real estate developments and a much improved infra structure (roads etc.) have changed the landscape of the Punta Cana/ Bavaro region in a sensible and positive way, thereby perfecting a holiday destination where absolutely everyone can have the vacation of a lifetime. What has stayed the same is that incredible long white sand beach where I still love to return to and never leaves me with a feeling of being in an overcrowded place. Young people, in heavy-duty party mode, take over lot of the resorts during the traditional American and Canadian spring break holidays. Not the best time to arrive in Punta Cana/ Bavaro when you are in need of peace and quiet. Many couples choose to get married in Punta Cana / Bavaro. Once I was invited to an afternoon wedding party aboard a boat called "La Barcaza", which was absolutely lovely. Did I mention that the Punta Cana / Bavaro region is considered to be the best golf destination in the Dominican Republic and even the Caribbean?

- La Barcaza

How to get there
Punta Cana International Airport has a unique design made up by several massive thatched-roof huts. The moment you arrive you feel the unique Caribbean atmosphere. From here it only takes 10 to 30 minutes by car to reach your resort!
Other options to arrive to Punta Cana/ Bavaro are La Romana Airport, a 1-1/2 to 2 hours drive from the major Punta Cana hotels or Santo Domingo’s Las Americas International Airport, from where it takes you about 4-hour drive to reach Punta Cana.

- Punta Cana/Bavaro Airport Transfers

The most economic way to get to Punta Cana/ Bavaro from Santo Domingo is by the Santo Domingo Bávaro commuter express bus.
For bus information arriving from other destinations, please see: Caribe Tours

Tours and excursions
In order to experience the real Dominican Republic, renting a car or arranging for a taxi is the best option. Towns and villages outside the resort like Higüey, the capital of the Altagracia province make for a great daytrip.
Manati Park, The Caribbean Festival snorkel excursion, Bavaro Runners Safari Adventures Mike´s Marina Fishing Charters S.A., which runs fishing trips, are just a few examples of great tour and excursions options in the Punta Cana/ Bavaro region. The possibilities are endless!
