Winter is the ideal time to visit Punta Cana, for a true taste of paradise. Located on the east coast of the Dominican Republic, it’s the perfect spot to relax on beautiful beaches surrounded by crystal clear water. Whilst these beaches are a great place to unwind, those looking to explore will be pleased to know there are plenty of other activities to be enjoyed along the way…
Cruise around the Caribbean Sea on-board a catamaran, taking in the picturesque views and local fishing villages. Snorkelling and swimming are available at each stop as you discover a wealth of ocean wildlife, including star fish and the colourful coral reef. The beautiful Saona and Catalina islands can also be visited by boat, with lunch provided once you’ve worked up an appetite by taking a dip.
If you love the feeling of being on the ocean, take advantage of the plethora of water sports. Master windsurfing during your winter break, or give kite surfing and water-skiing a whirl. PADI certifications are available, so why not take the opportunity to become a qualified scuba-diver in a breath-taking setting? Scuba diving trips for all levels of divers include visits to Patricia Wreck, Coral Garden, Pepe Reef and Venil Reef, where you’ll find varieties of parrot fish, nurse sharks and rays.
Adrenalin-fuelled fun is right on the doorstep of the Club Med Punta Cana resort. Only 15 minutes away you can enjoy buggy driving, zip lining, a refreshing swim and a day of exploring the caves around the Hoyo Azul national park. These activities make for a fun-packed day with all the family and magical views, so don’t forget your camera.
Down time is enjoyed all-the-more on holiday, so why not take advantage of the spa facilities within Club Med Punta Cana? Have a massage, book a treatment or take time out in the Zen area to truly unwind. If yoga helps you to relax, take part in a class within the coconut grove of the Zen Oasis, close to the beach.
Away from the beach, your children can take part in the sights and sounds of Club Med CreActive: a circus-inspired playground by Cirque du Soleil. Both adults and children can experience acrobatic activities, bungees and trampolining, or mask painting and juggling. A fun environment, designed to evoke creativity and excitement, all supervised by expert members of trained staff.
Feast on world food
After you’ve explored the Punta Cana resort and its surrounding areas, you’ll be in the mood to experience the delicious food on offer. International, gourmet cuisine can be enjoyed by the waterfront, or if health is your aim, try smoothies, fresh salads and fruit from the Hibiscus lounge.
A picturesque setting for the ultimate unspoiled winter break, Punta Cana has a wealth of activities to enjoy, both on the beach and away from it!
