Punta Cana, the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic, abuts the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. It's a region known for a 32km stretch of beaches and crystal clear waters.
Punta Cana covers about 420 000 square metres with a population estimated at 100 000. Despite the area being fairly deserted, the proximity of Punta Cana to other major resort areas make the town one of the top Caribbean destinations. Peak season in Punta Cana tends to run from December to April with prices dropping in the summer and early autumn months.
Punta Cana has a tropical climate. Although it can be mildly windy, the ocean in the area is mainly shallow, with several natural marine pools in which you can relax. The weather is fairly constant, with an average temperature of 26°C. The hottest season lasts from April to November, and during the day temperatures might reach 32°C.
From December to March, temperatures during the evening are around 20°C. Very little rain falls around the area, mostly because of the flat landscape. The summer months tend to be very warm and humid – just what you need from a tropical holiday!
Spanish is the official language of the Dominican Republic and is widely spoken by the locals. English and many other languages are spoken at the resort and you won’t have any problem getting around.
