Does anyone know what the typical cost is to go parasailing or jetskiing in punta cana?

immarir,

There is no jetskiing permitted in Punta Cana by law - primarily for guest safety based on the boat traffic off of the beach area.

Parasailing is available from beach vendors and your resorts Water Sports Center for a price of approx $40US per person - most parasailing is now tandem, so you may both go up at the same time for no more than $80US for the two of you.

Hope this does assist you.

I didn't know that about the jet skiing. That's good to know. Good info in the parasailing.

If there's a lot of boat traffic, is it still good to kayak?

Welcome to the Punta Cana forums.

Have never seen water skiing offered in Punta Cana - likely due to amount of boat traffic.

The only place I have seen water skiing is at Dreams Punta Cana.

Probably becase its so isolated.

You can do waterskiing at the beach in front of the PUNTACANA hotel. Ask for Mark at the hut on the beach and he will make the arrangements for you. Have been a few times and had lots of fun.
