Think of a beach like the ones in the Northeast – long, jagged, framed by endless coconut trees and protected by coral reefs – but with the white sand and turquoise Caribbean Sea, welcome to Punta Cana.
This stretch of the Dominican Republic’s eastern part has at least 40 resorts. The list can reach 60, if you take into account that some Punta Cana complexes have up to five hotels under one banner.
In none of them are there buildings taller than the coconut trees. And they all work under the all-inclusive system, where all meals, snacks and drinks are included – and you don’t have to worry when you close the account.
It’s not a place for long walks — it’s a place to enjoy the wonderful sea and the mega-structure of the hotels.
