Reviews Punta Cana
Punta Cana is a point on the Playa de Coco, or Coconut Coast. With resorts and hotels scattered along the point, this is one of the Dominican Republic’s most popular tourist destinations. Punta Cana’s 45 kilometres are graced with fine white sand beaches, lapped by the waves of a warm aqua blue sea.
There have been settlements on this eastern tip of the Dominican Republic since
Spanish colonial times, mainly little fishing villages where people lived off
the bounty of the sea. It was only about 30 years ago that the area began to
be developed for tourism. Today, this is one of the Caribbean’s fastest-growing
resort areas. The hotels and resorts are concentrated in a few towns along the
coast, such as Bávaro, with its shopping complexes, restaurants and nightclubs;
El Cotecito, a small fishing village with numerous private hotels and apartments;
Cabeza de Toro, with a number of top-quality hotels; and Cap Cana, a complex
stretching 4 kilometres along the coast.
