Quietly and without fanfare, Punta Cana has become the Caribbean's dream destination. Until just a few years ago, these unspoiled beaches belonged to seabirds, coconut harvesters, and local fishermen. Now, a discrete selection of world-class resorts has made this special place available to the rest of us. Come to Punta Cana and the Dominican Republic for the glorious beaches, world-class resorts, delightful people, and incredible natural environment. The unspoiled scenery of Punta Cana will leave you breathless. Forty miles of pearl-white sand beaches and luxurious beach resort hotels line the eastern coast of this island. Punta Cana has put a priority on its ecological efforts. Vacationers can hike trails and view some of the native and rare species of animals and vegetation while the island's mineral springs offer a cool and refreshing refuge.
