Adventure Awaits in Punta Cana

Adventure Awaits in Punta Cana

Exploring and experiencing local culture and geography is one way to connect to a destination. If there is one place that has adventure waiting for you it’s in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

While there are many unique ways to enjoy Punta Cana, these are my top three.

Monkey Land is on top of the must-do list. Settled in a jungle on 5 acres, over 50 squirrel monkeys are free to roam. You are invited to enter their home with fruit and snacks to offer these furry, curious friends. Get ready to have a few take a seat on your shoulder to munch on a banana slice while you capture photos and memories of a lifetime.

Immerse your day in adventure, history and experience Dominican culture with the experts, Bavaro Runners. Horseback riding, tobacco farm tours, even a chance to see how Dominican coffee is roasted and chocolate is made at local homes and plantations. Plus, an opportunity to indulge in a typical Dominican lunch (including real cacao and exotic tropical fruits) served in the rolling countryside.

Now if you’re really looking to get your heart rate up…try zip lining, AT NIGHT!
After dark is its own world, more so in a jungle canopy. Head to Zip Lines Ranch where you can ride one of eight cables of ACCT-certified zip lines bravely into the darkness. At the end share your experience with your friends over a light dinner.
