Within this sea and sun Disneyland, visitors can not only kick back on the camera-ready beaches that are famed for its golden hues and warm aquamarine waters, but also explore the authentic Caribbean spirit that inhabits the surrounding towns.

Places to See in Punta Cana

  • Hoyo Azul: Tucked inside Scape Park, in the Cap Cana area, this “blue hole” cenote offers a refreshing swim in natural, cool spring waters. Surrounded in lush rainforest, Hoyo Azul, approximately 14 meters in depth, sits at the foot of a 75 meter tall limestone cliff covered in vegetation. You’ll have to cross a suspension bridge and hike past a myriad of flora and fauna, including an orchid garden, to make your way to this hidden oasis. Leap into the tempting turquoise waters, or use the steps to enter this paradisiacal, natural pool.
  • Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park: An ecological park and reserve that spans over 1,500 acres of subtropical forest, the Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park is also dedicated to the art of conservation and scientific research. Visitors can enjoy the 12 freshwater lagoons — five of which are open for swimming.
  • Astron Shipwreck: Off the coast of Punta Cana, the Astron Shipwreck is an astounding landmark and an exciting dive for scuba divers. Built in 1957, this French-built, Russian-owned oil tanker ran aground in 1978 resulting in a massive oil spill. Whether you marvel at it as you splash about in the sea or look at it from the comfort of the golden beach, the Astron Shipwreck is almost as fascinating far away as it is up-close.
