4. The beaches
The clear turquoise water and thousands of swaying palms that provide necessary shade on the crystal sands make it understandable why so many resorts came here to set up shop. There are a few stand-out stretches of sand in Punta Cana, beginning with Juanillo. You won’t be alone on the sand when you visit Juanilo due to the many hotels nearby, but it’s relatively free of vendors, and there’s a little beach restaurant too.
We also love Playa Bavaro, with its warm water, relaxed atmosphere and an abundance of watersports activities to choose from.
5. The nightlife
The nights in Punta Cana are just awesome, there are plenty of hot nightspots to visit in Punta Cana. The resorts where many tourists stay have multiple bars and clubs within them, so sometimes you don’t even have to leave the property of your own resort to have fun.
If you do choose to venture out into town, there are lots of local bars to hit up. Though you can get the usual beer and cocktails, you may want to be adventurous and try some of the island and tropical drinks that they have in many of the bars.
Don’t believe what some people tell you regarding safety. Punta Cana is one of the safest vacation spots in the Caribbean, and tourists should feel comfortable traveling outside of the hotel zone.
Since 2006 Punta Cana has been reported as having one of the lowest crime rates in the world, mostly because of the low drug crime here. However, petty theft (especially of cell phones, according to some) does sometimes occur, so you should be careful when carrying valuables with you.
Hotel security is good, and there’s even a special branch of the police department devoted to tourist safety, known as Politur. Police officers are often stationed in the hotels. There are many POLITUR (police just for tourist) who do nothing else but scope the area making sure tourist are safe and having fun.
