Located on the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana is one of the Caribbean’s most popular destinations – and a trip to Punta Cana with Inspirato is even better. Members rave about our palatial residences and thoughtful service teams, rating the destination a solid 4.8 out of 5.

Punta Cana’s numerous amenities and activities are perfect for active families and adrenaline junkies, but it’s also an ideal place to relax and get away from it all. Below, we’ve outlined the best ways to enjoy this paradise, whether you’re there for thrills or just to unwind. No matter what your ideal vacation entails, Punta Cana delivers. We’ll let the simple words of Inspirato Member Mark V. sum it up – “Three families agree: best trip ever.”

For the Active Traveler


1. Hit the Links

Some of golf’s greats have designed courses in Punta Cana. Play a round overlooking the sea on fairways and greens designed by the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, and P.B. Dye. Waterfront courses like La Cana golf course have the Caribbean’s most sought-after tee times.


2. Hit the Jungle

Scape at Cap Cana is a unique eco-adventure park tucked within the jungle-covered hills of Cap Cana resort. Its lush setting hosts a slew of thrilling activities ideal for all ages; among the highlights are a hidden cenote to explore, zip line, cave and waterfall expeditions, and dune buggy rides.


3. Hit the Water

The aquamarine waters surrounding Punta Cana beckon travelers to dive right in. The area is one of the Caribbean’s top spots for sailing and catamaran tours, and with plenty of gentle bays, it’s great for snorkeling, kayaking, and swimming.

For the Relaxed Traveler

1. Hang Out at the Beach

Powdery soft, white sand beaches are found all around Punta Cana. Spend a day in the sun with a cocktail in hand and attentive beach staff to take care of every need. With a beautiful calm beach just steps from an infinity-edge pool, Eden Roc Beach Club is a must. Alternatively, kick back next to the peaceful water at La Cana Beach Club, designed by Oscar de la Renta. Other popular spots include Playa Blanca and Playa Bavaro.


2. Hang out at the Restaurants

When not feasting on delicious meals prepared by an in-residence chef, Inspirato Members are fans of La Palapa, where the fresh seafood and waterfront views are reliably impressive. Other favorites include AAA Three Diamond Award winner La Yola restaurant at the PUNTACANA Resort & Club and cocktails from the beach bar at Eden Roc Beach Club.


3. Hang Out at Your Residence

Inspirato’s residences are as expansive as 16,000 square feet and feature amenities such as large private pools, so it’s perfectly understandable why many members spend most of their vacations peacefully lounging in comfort. Several residences feature a dedicated, on-site cook and in Inspirato’s exclusive enclave of three residences in Cap Cana’s Punta Cayuco area, an incredible hospitality team is on hand to assist with anything you need. The enclave is perfect for large families or groups looking for privacy, space, and five-star service – all at the same time.

    Are there things to do as a family other than bake in the sun?
    Is this a good coral, fish snorkling place: clear waters but are they WARM??
    And what is the prime season to go there??
    This is a serious interest and I am thrilled this came across my “desk” here

    • Inspirato says:

      Hi Carol, Punta Cana is a member favorite for families. Horseback riding and scuba diving/snorkeling are two activities we commonly recommend but one of the most unique to Punta Cana is the Dolphin Explorer experience. The weather is mild for most of the year with average highs in the upper 80s with January being the “coldest” month dipping into the low 70s. June-November is typically hurricane season.

  • Doug Best says:

    How safe is it going into town during day or night? What is the dollar value compared to Mexico? What Language is mostly spoken on the island. Is night life in town recommended?

    • Inspirato says:

      Hi Doug, thanks for your questions. Many guests explore the island and surrounding towns in complete safety but the majority of guests come for the resort experience. Currently the Us Dollar to Dominican Peso is even stronger than the Mexican Pesos. The native language is Spanish and while English is common, it is not as prevalent as other Caribbean islands.
