Punta Cana OVERVIEW
As a glamorous and exclusive destination on the east coast of the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana is the place for sun worshippers, golf lovers, water sport adrenaline junkies and those who appreciate the finer things in life. In many ways, it's an idyllic playground for the elite, and when you go there, that's just how you'll feel. If celebrity-spotting at the local golf courses and watering holes (and golf course holes on the water) isn't your thing, then you've got kiteboarding, ecological parks for hiking and birdwatching, Segway tours, yachting and swimming with dolphins. And if that isn't enough, you can explore the dozens of miles of UNESCO-recognized white sandy beaches and sparkling coral reefs.

Less than 40 inches of rain per year will get in between you and your tropical fantasies.
