Punta Cana, The Picture-Perfect Beach Getaway

Just a short flight from Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic is an idyllic beach getaway that I recently discovered during an international tourism conference. I was really impressed by Punta Cana’s stellar, uncrowned beaches with calm waters– a great place for basking in sun and relishing rest and relaxation. I was also enchanted by the super-friendly Dominican hospitality. Punta Cana is a reasonably-affordable tourism destination with an extensive all-inclusive concept. It’s no wonder that they continue to experience such healthy tourism growth.Located on the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana abuts the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Renowned for its 32km stretch of beaches and clear waters, the Bavaro area, as well as Punta Cana combines to form what’s known as La Costa del Coco, or the Coconut Coast, an extensive area of lavish, all-inclusive resorts that dot the coastline. Aside from my favorite pastime–lounging on a turquoise Caribbean beach– there are actually quite a number of things to do in Punta Cana for all types of travel enthusiasts and vacation budgets.

A solo un corto vuelo de Miami y Ft. Lauderdale, Punta Cana en la republica dominicana es una escapada idílica. Me quedé realmente impresionada con sus playas estelares, es verdaderamente un gran lugar para tomar sol, disfrutar del descanso y la relajación. También me encantó su gente quienes son súper amables. Punta Cana es un destino turístico razonablemente accesible con un amplio concepto de todo incluido. No es de extrañar que continúen disfrutando de un crecimiento de turismo súper saludable. Ubicada en el extremo este de la República Dominicana, Punta Cana colinda con el Mar Caribe y el Océano Atlántico. Reconocido por sus 32 km de playas y aguas cristalinas, el área de Bávaro, así como Punta Cana se combinan para formar lo que se conoce como La Costa del Coco, una extensa área de lujosos resorts con todo incluido que salpican la costa. Aparte de mi pasatiempo favorito– descansar en una playa caribeña de color turquesa– hay un sin número de diversiones y atracciones que ver y hacer para que los turistas disfruten de esta encantadora ciudad turística.
