Travelers' pro tips for experiencing Punta Cana
In the words of those who've been there before ...
What is the best way to get there?
Most travelers fly into Punta Cana International Airport, where shuttle buses and taxis will take you into the city. It’s also possible to arrive at La Romana airport, about 45 minutes away.
Do I need a visa?
If you’re visiting Punta Cana from overseas, use the government’s Visa Wizard to see if you need a visa.
When is the best time to visit?
Summertime is peak season in the Dominican Republic, when the warm waters are ideal for swimming and daily temperatures often hit 86°F (30°C). To avoid the crowds, plan your trip for the shoulder months of April or May. Temperatures are pretty consistent year-round, but be aware that June to November is hurricane season.
Punta Cana is easy to get around on foot and most hotels are within walking distance of the beach.
Taxis and motoconchos (motorcycle taxis) are easy to find, but be sure to agree on a fare before you set off. Flagging down a taxi on the street or walking to a local taxi stand away from your resort will probably get you the best price.
Although Uber and Cabify are available in some Dominican Republic cities, they are not currently available in Punta Cana.
