Resorts in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
You really can't go wrong with a vacation to the Dominican Republic. But Punta Cana, the eastern-most coast of the country, is what tourists expect to see when they travel to the Caribbean. The mesmerizing crystal blue and turquoise water seems unreal, like it belongs in a travel magazine. Staying at a resort in Punta Cana is the easiest and most economical method of travel, as all costs (travel, food, lodging and entertainment) are included in the rate per person per night.
