7 Best Activities to Do in Punta Cana With Friends

Outing to the Blue Hole

The well-known Blue Hole is a natural pool whose water is a deep blue colour. It is a must-see if you want to experience the intensity and beauty of nature and its colours with your five senses. You can visit the Blue Hole with your friends at Scape Park.

Experience local life in Higüey

Higüey is a city very close to the beaches of Punta Cana which, however, offers a very different perspective than that which you may get of the Costa del Coco. Once there, it’s essential that you explore local life and discover the Basilica-Cathedral of Our Lady of Altagracia, one of the country’s most iconic and revered images.

In addition, you can walk its streets, full of the purest Dominican atmosphere in which you can dance and enjoy the sound of the most authentic merengue. Think you won’t be able to keep up? Don’t worry, the Dominicans will give you some basic movements to follow so that you can have a great time while dancing to the music the country is known for.

Samaná and Los Haitises National Park

This jungle park can be visited by boat, enjoying its plants and wildlife at a close distance. You’ll discover the native species in the area, such as the pelicans, herons and other birds. For this visit, you can also book a small plane to be used exclusively by your group of friends, recommended especially in the season known for humpback whale watching.

If you’re nature lovers, there’s no question that this is one plan you can’t miss during the days you spend in Punta Cana. It’s very easy to book an organised trip, although you also have the option of renting a car and going on your own.

Go snorkelling and do other water activities
