Visiting Punta Cana? There Are Plenty Of Things To Do

Submitted by: Cindy Woodward

Punta Cana is on the east coast of the Dominican Republic. It is considered one of the top 100 places to visit in the world, and there is good reason for this. The pristine beaches are the most popular attraction in Punta Cana along with surfing, and golf is not far behind. One of the most fun things to do in Punta Cana is ziplining. It offers an adrenalin rush for adventure tourists, as they fly over trees from platform to platform while they are secure in their safety equipment.

The most popular zipline tour in Punta Cana is Canopy Adventure Zipline tour, which boasts over 700 meters of cables with spectacular jungle views. There are expert guides and every step is explained clearly, so participants are sure to have a great time. Everyone says there is nothing like the thrill, and it is one of the things to do in Punta Cana that should not be missed.

Canopy Adventure runs one of the longest and safest zipline excursions in the Caribbean. They have 8 double lines of cables and 15 platforms located in the Anamuya rainforest of Bavaro, Punta Cana. Their safety measures are complemented with their exceptional staff. After safety comes fun, and they make sure you have a good time.

Another popular tour in Punta Cana are Segways, which are offered all over the world, but in Punta Cana itís even more fun than in a city. After learning to ride the Segway, you can discover the beach, see the local multi-million dollar estates first hand and ride around the many golf courses. You can even take a break at the Ecological Reserve where there are 15 lagoons of natural spring water for you to take a swim.

A Punta Cana favorite is Manati Park, a theme park located in a tropical garden of orchids and other tropical plants. It offers several shows about the Dominican Republic including a reconstructed village where there are performances of dance rituals as well as authentic paintings, clothing and gift shops. Visitors can get up close with all types of animals including snakes, crabs, sea lions, dolphins, birds, iguanas and flamingos among many more. Visitors can even swim with dolphins.

Snorkeling and scuba diving are two of the things to do in Punta Cana underwater. There are designated snorkeling sites because of the heavy boat traffic. Punta Cana is a good place for beginners to learn how to scuba dive. The water is shallow with reefs and many species of fish as well as wrecks, tunnels and channels.

Big game fishing is very good in Punta Cana. It is considered one of the top five places in the world for white marlin fishing during the peak season, which is the end of March to June. The full season is until September. There is also blue marlin, mahi, yellowfin tuna, barracuda, bonitos and wahoo.

Whether you are looking for the high adventure of ziplining, relaxing days on one of the 12 professional golf courses or plan to spend all your time at the beach, you will find a lot of things to do in Punta Cana.
