    Once one of the most remote and beautiful places on the planet, Punta Cana has begun transforming in recent years into one of the most popular destinations for the Dominican Republic. While technically it has been a popular tourist destination since the 1970s for the locals, it wasn’t until the entire coastline began to turn into a sprawling, all-inclusive series of resorts that it transformed from a local’s favorite into a world-renowned center for the crème-de-la-crème of all-inclusive resorts. And despite the fact that Punta Cana is within the Dominican Republic, the vast majority of resorts are actually owned by European companies and investors.

    Technically Punta Cana is the name of the entire region of coastline, but the name also applies to the town itself. Peak travel times are December through April, and the rates rise dramatically during these months, so it’s best to schedule your trips later in the year to avoid the crowds and the prices, but regardless of when you come, this is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The resorts are laid out like mini cities, completely inclusive in every way, with many of them offering so many amenities that it may be impossible to partake of everything available, such as scuba diving, fishing, golfing, wind-sailing, enjoying a day at the spa, or a day out on a yacht.

    While there are various sites outside of the resorts, such as Santo Domingo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and recognized as the first European settlement in the Western hemisphere, or Altos de Chavron overlooking the Chavron River from the cliffs above, laid out like a 16th century Mediterranean town, the main appeal of Punta Cana and the surrounding region is the all-inclusive nature of the resorts. This is the ultimate destination for those who simply want to drop their bags, turn off the cell, and ignore the rest of the world for a little while.
