Punta Cana and its Surroundings

Home » Destination Guides - Countries » Dominican Republic » Punta Cana and its Surroundings


The Dominican Republic's eastern point is characterized by an almost unbroken succession of sugar cane fields and orange groves. Picturesque, pastel-coloured villages pop up here and there on the landscape. It is common to see people travelling by horse, a much more popular means of transport than the car in some villages. In fact, Higüey is the only sizeable urban centre in this sparsely populated region, where you can drive for tens of kilometres without encountering any towns. The eastern point thus offers curious travellers an intriguing look at the traditions and customs of the Dominican countryside.

Most travellers, however, come to this region for another reason: its beaches are among the most beautiful in the country, if not the whole Caribbean.
