One of the most popular activities in Punta Cana is Saona Island, one of the largest in Dominican Republic. This enigmatic island has beautiful beaches, jungle, mangroves and town inhabited by fishermen. You can get there on a large catamaran or in small boats, all these boats arrive at the same beach where you can find restaurants and swim with your family and friends.

#2 Los Haitises National Park

This is one of the most beautiful excursions to do in Punta Cana. Located in the bay of Samaná, this place has the appearance that Punta Cana had before its tourist transformation.
