Punta Cana Travel Guide: 441 reviews and 1,059 photos

We had an unforgettable week swimming, suntanning, snorkelling and scuba diving in this breathtaking location. Punta Cana is the east corner of the Dominican Republic (which shares the island with Haiti) and literally means "Corner of Palm Trees." They stretch for miles along soft white sandy beaches.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The beaches!
  • Cons:Waves were tough for scuba diving, although fine for swimming
  • In a nutshell:A great place for remote R and R!

    The airlines are starting charge $50 for overwieght luggage.So from now on I will take 2 large luggage and a carry on just to even out the wight.
