Destinations in Dominican Republic
Punta Cana
Punta Cana settles on the very eastern tip of the Dominican Republic. It’s the poster child for luxury Caribbean holidays – think pale sands, palatial hotels, coconut palms and private marinas.
Uvero Alto
Uvero Alto is the laid-back northern district of Punta Cana. The hotels really spread out up here, so there’s plenty of elbow room for plush beach cabanas and honeymoon-friendly restaurants.
