Travel Spotlight: Dominican Republic

Punta Cana

We recently traveled to Dominican Republic for a tropical getaway! We stayed in Punta Cana, one of the country’s most beautiful areas.

Punta Cana is located where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean. Several large resorts offer all the comforts of modern living right on the beach {there are options for every type of budget}.

If you are considering the Dominican Republic as a travel option, here are some things you should know:

  • No direct flights from Arizona. The layover + 3 hour time difference eats away at your time. We recommend taking a redeye to arrive early afternoon the next day.
  • There are several beaches in Punta Cana. We recommend researching the various beaches first and then deciding on a resort on the beach you like.
  • Punta Cana is a golfer’s destination with 11 courses along the strip
  • If you like nightlife, Punta Cana recently opened a CoCo Bongo nightclub.
  • A passport book is needed to fly to and from the U.S. and the D.R. Make sure your passport is valid for 6 months after your anticipated return date.

If you’re looking for a recommendation on where to stay, we recommend Paradisus Punta Cana Resort. This all-inclusive resort is located on the stunning Bavaro Beach and is surrounded by ecological gardens.

The photos above give a little insight into the fabulousness of Paradisus Punta Cana Resort. We love this resort because it gives travelers the best value for their money. Everything is top notch (food, drinks, rooms, service, etc) and you can make things extra special with the Royal Service Experience.
