Oh, the many wonders we have in store for you! Punta Cana is full of beauties that we can’t wait to show you. And there’s only one way to explore them all. That’s right, I’m talking about excursions! No more wondering what you’ll do during your vacation. Just hop on to one of these excursions and you’ll have the time of your life. Let me tell you all about my favorite things to do in Punta Cana and maybe you’ll sign up for a few excursions! You won’t regret it!

Saona Island

The Dominican Republic has some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, that fact is indisputable, but have you seen them all? I bet you haven’t! Saona Island is one of those locations that you simply must visit when you come. It’s just off the southern coast of the DR in the Caribbean sea. It’s so stunning, in fact, that it’s often used in tropical postcards! You might even recognize it from a stock picture, just because of how perfect it is.

Whether you’re a new visitor or a regular, Saona Island is an impressive location to go to. An excursion here will take you on a beautiful catamaran ride to the island to spend a few hours playing in the ocean. Expect lots of dancing, a buffet lunch, and unlimited rum. It’s a great time, and no two tours will be the same! I strongly encourage you to come and give it a go more than once. The beach alone is worth it!

Things to do in Punta Cana: Visit Altos de Chavon

A Mediterranean town in a tropical island? More likely than you’d think! Altos de Chavon is ready to bedazzle you with its architecture. You’ll find that the small villa is filled with only the most beautiful buildings, and there is a beautiful little chapel too! You can marry there! Couples who are thinking about a destination wedding could take one of the tours here and explore it for a venue option. But everyone else can simply stare at the stonework all day. We won’t judge!

Go snorkeling on the coral reef

The Dominican Republic is surrounded by an amazing coral reef that you’ve likely seen at the beach. It does wonders for the environment and protects people from shark attacks (lol!), making it not only pretty but useful, too! But have you seen it up close? Well, those who want to see what the fuzz is about can certainly do so. Put on that snorkeling equipment and dive deep! See all the colors and shapes by yourself, not just in pictures! It’ll be one of the best things to do in Punta Cana that you could have ever imagined.

Go ahead, splash into that mud puddle and get a little messy. You will find so many routes, it’s up to you to decide where you’ll go!

Cave explorations

Are you a fan of nature, danger, and excitement? Some people prefer the beach, but when that isn’t enough there are always caves to explore! Like every other part of the world we have many secrets to uncover, and you just might get a chance to do so. Don’t forget to be careful! Even though it’s a vacation spot, safety in caves is a priority. Always listen to your guide!
