The Dominican’s dazzling gem.
50 years ago, the area now known as Punta Cana was overgrown with dense forests and little human presence beyond a few small fishing villages. In 1969 a group of keen-eyed investors envisioned more for the pristine palm-lined beaches and crystal clear waters and set to work developing the five-mile stretch of coast into one of the world’s premier beach destinations.
Boasting some of the Caribbean’s best beaches, Punta Cana and offers endless opportunity for both relaxation and adventure. Soak up the sun on white sand beaches dotted with swaying palm trees or get ready for some aquatic fun. Catamaran tours, deep sea sport fishing, and snorkeling are all popular activities in Punt Cana. To experience true Dominican life and culture, venture inland to the nearby city for Higuey. Sample local cuisine—a unique blend of Latin, indigenous Taino and African influences—and stroll through its colorful neighborhoods.
Punta Cana is far from a cookie-cutter resort town. See for yourself on your next Azamara® voyage to the beautiful Caribbean!
