In the Municipal district in La Altagracia, in the easternmost province of the Dominican Republic, lies the state of Punta Cana. The state is the part of the Punta Cana-Bavaro-Veron, Macao. The state is mostly known for its tourist destination with the beaches surrounding the state. Punta Cana is known for a relaxing vacation and water sports in the region. The place has a blend of both Caribbean and Atlantic that is the region it makes the best tourist spot. Weather in the region is almost consistent in the state with exceeding humidity in summers. Best time to visit the place is in between ... More November to March, where the humidity level is very less and the evenings are very pleasant. This state has little rain because of the flat landscapes which is a combination of mountains and savanna. The place has beautiful surroundings and the water sports in the region are outstanding.

The resorts and hotels are appointed with all the amenities the visitor to this area could require, while the nearby beaches are the perfect place to relax and unwind. Activities are organised through many of the hotels, while the seaside towns offer many shops and restaurants where local produce can be bought and sampled. The Barceló Bávaro Casino opens at 4pm, where gambling is accompanied by the nightly show of traditional Dominican music and dance. Nightclubs in the resort areas offer a great night out, and the Latin beats get the whole crowd moving.
... More /> Outside of the resorts, the natural beauty of the Dominican Republic takes over, as coconut palms give way to the white sand of the beaches. Some of the original fishing villages remain fairly undeveloped. One of the most picturesque is El Macao, a fishing village that looks out to the Playa Bonita with its adjacent rocky hill. From atop this hill, one can look out across the sea and catch glimpses of an old shipwreck, one of the attractions for divers in the area.
The cit of Higüey was founded in 1494, and today it serves as a living example of the traditional Dominican way of life, with small streets 5 centuries old. On the road from Higüey to La Romana, you will find the two towns of San Rafael de Yuma and Boca de Yuma. In San Rafael de Yuma, stop and take a look at the Ponce de Leon House, where, in the early 1500s, the commander of this eastern part of the country lived with his family. In Boca de Yuma, opportunities abound to sample the fresh local fish and the traditional dances of bachata and salsa.
Punta Cana also boasts a nature reserve, the Manati Park Bavaro, where colourful birds, reptiles, and fish share their home with dolphins that are more than willing to put on a performance. Just off the southeast coast of the mainland, Sanoa Island is a popular spot for daytrips. The island’s small fishing village is the only settlement, and visitors here can enjoy the delicious local catches under the shade of the coconut palms.

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. ... More 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.
