Punta Cana lies in the easternmost province of the Dominican Republic, La Altagracia. Its name is derived from the abundance of cane palms found in the region; it literally means ‘Tip of the White Cane Palms’. Due to a major influx of tourists in search of a Caribbean retreat, the area has in recent decades experienced a boom in constructions and infrastructure. You will find leviathan resorts along the expanse of the coast, with more being built as part of ambitious ventures by investors. The resorts are reminiscent of small cities, where you can find any imaginable service and comfort for your enjoyment. Scuba-diving is perhaps the most attractive attraction of the area; clear waters and rich ecosystems with countless species of fish and coral life provide the quintessential underwater experience. The culinary world of Punta Cana is highlighted by a myriad of top-notch restaurants offering both regional and international delicacies; close proximity to the water means you can expect scrumptiously prepared seafood fresh from the ocean. Apart from sunning yourself on the beach and gorging yourself on milk-laden coconuts, the resorts offer numerous activities to get your heart pumping including: kayaking, windsurfing, golfing, and jet skis.
