Punta Cana is home to some of the world’s most glorious white sand beaches. It’s no wonder it’s so popular! When you’re not at the beach be sure to plan trips to visit Santo Domingo, Manati Park and Altos de Chavon with a Punta Cana car hire.
Manati Park: There’s so much to do at this family-friendly attraction including swimming with dolphins, riding horses and visiting the aquariums to see dozens of varieties of tropical and exotic fish.
Altos de Chavon: Take a trip back to this artist’s village that looks just like a 16th century Mediterranean village. It’s located on a hillside overlooking the beautiful Chavon River. Tour artist studios, attend a craft workshops and dine your way across the town.
Santo Domingo: This is the first European settlement in the Western Hemisphere and the city has carefully preserved a number of its colonial buildings. The first Cathedral of the Americas still stands, as does the remarkable Alcazar de Colon.
