For many, holidays in Punta Cana are synonymous with lying in the sun, managing to stay in shape by lifting a cocktail to your mouth various times a day.
Luckily for you, the Caribbean offers a lot more, and there are more and more people who take advantage of their time in the region to enjoy various sports in crystal clear water and mystical cenotes. You already know what Punta Cana offers on land – so let’s take a look at what it offers under the sea!
Those new to water sports can begin with snorkelling, a lovely activity that will allows you to catch a glimpse of many types of fish and corals. A kaleidoscope of colours moves around you as you swim, making it a truly unique experience. There are hundreds of species of fish, but the damselfish, trumpetfish, angelfish, and barracudas are the most common.
More intrepid holidaymakers might even see the impressive nurse shark, but don’t worry – despite its unusual appearance, it’s totally inoffensive.
These waters are also home to the Dominican Republic’s national animal – the turtle, with Green turtles, Hawksbill Sea turtles, and Loggerheads being the most common.
One of the most charming places in the region and a great spot to try these activities is the small fishing village of Cabeza de Toro famous for its turquoise waters and shores dotted with coconut trees.
This is where you’ll find BlueBay Grand Punta Cana*****, a family resort with first-class facilities and ample suites with enough rooms and a living room so that when it comes to winding down, you’ll feel right at home.
After an action packed day full of activities, we’re sure you’ll enjoy the wide selection of restaurants and bars offering food that ranges from creative Mediterranean cuisine to international fare.
Once you’ve had a chance to rest, you can get back to the adventure, perhaps trying other activities like paddle surf, which you can do on the nearby Playa Bávaro beach.
If you need a higher dose of adrenaline, Punta Cana also offers water skiing and parasailing. You can rent everything you’ll need on any of the tourist-oriented beaches.
If you need a day to relax after all the activity, BlueBay Grand Punta Cana ***** also offers a children’s club, gym, yoga classes, and evening entertainment, meaning the whole family can have a great time without the need to step outside the resort.
Activity and excitement need to be balanced with rest and relaxation. You can do both while enjoying the first-class service BlueBay Grand Punta Cana ***** has to offer – your holiday there is a story waiting to be told, so reserve your trip without delay!
