Best Excursions and Activities in Punta Cana

Most visitors to the Dominican Republic, not just Punta Cana, end up on the beaches of Actividades en Punta Cana, Punta Cana, Cabeza de Toro, Bávaro, El Cortecito, Arena Gorda, Macao, and Uvero Alto. The beach is definitely the number one attraction in the East Coast area, stretching 50 kilometers of beautiful white sands. But visitors to Punta Cana also have a host of excursions to choose from, with many tour companies offering similar packages: buggy rides, jeep safaris, monster trucks, or helicopter rides for an insider’s view, zip line adventure services. , horseback riding, motocross / enduro. Horseback riding, mountain biking, scuba diving, catamaran party boats, fishing yachts, snorkeling trips, speedboats and many more.

A dozen companies offer these adventure tours that take tourists to observe tropical nature, visit a rural house where a typical Dominican lunch will be served, examine tropical crops, take a dip on a deserted beach or swim in a cool river.

Clients who travel on a package tour with one company tend to book excursions with the same company or through their resort’s affiliated company.

 In Punta Cana, most of the activities can be booked directly on the hotel’s tourdesk with the different tour representatives. Tours like “Bavaro Splash / speedboats”, for example, are available at all tour counters and at all sales sites; the rates must be the same, at least as long as the product is the same / original. Some activities like Punta Cana Mike’s Dominican Adventure Tours or Sports Fishing from Cap Cana Marina, otherwise cannot be booked at the resorts as they can only be booked with the Tour organizers directly online and in advance.

It is important to make it clear that a Tour Operator or a DMC (Destination Management Company) in most cases (there are some exceptions) will not execute the tour itself, it will only book it with the provider that performs the specific tour and is This is why the many different tour operators have almost all the same tours on their program.

In my opinion, for activities like extreme buggies, sport fishing, many safaris, many catamaran excursions, you don’t need to use a middlesman / tourcompany unless you want to go with large groups. As long as a specific tour is offered by an owner-managed website / touroutfitter, I would recommend booking online and in advance, as the owners themselves of course are the ones who offer the best services and rates in their direct bookings, without intermediaries. / seller involved ..
