In an area boasting beaches that face both the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, vacations in Punta Cana have been popular with tourists since the early 1970s.
Kids will enjoy Macao Beach and Bavaro Beach. Take a break from Punta Cana with a short trip to Speed Boats Tours in Bayahibe, about 1h 05 min away. There's much more to do: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and have some family-friendly fun at Escape Room Punta Cana.
