WHY Punta Cana? Punta Cana is now the most sought after destination for rest and recreation in the Dominican Republic. This area has miles of pristine white sand beaches, a deep turquoise sea, clear skies almost year round, and infinite starry nights. This paradise is located on the eastern tip of the island where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic. In addition to boasting the best deep-sea fishing in the world, the waters off the coast offer great snorkeling and diving excursions. Most of the coast is guarded by coral reefs, keeping the waters at the beach safe and calm.  Also known for their  world class golf courses and luxurious hotels and resorts, the destination provides an inspiring experience.  One of the most impressive courses is the Cocotal Golf and Country Club.  This 18-hole course, designed by six-time Spanish champion Jose Pepe Gancedo, uses the natural terrain of an old coconut plantation and includes serene lakes and palm trees in its landscape.  Access to this Caribbean city is abundant, as the city boasts the largest privately owned airport in the world at Punta Cana International Airport.
