How is the weather in Punta Cana?
The weather in Punta Cana is always warm and usually sunny, with the average daily temperature in the high 70s or low 80s, with little variance year round. So, the weather is, in a word, fabulous. Rainfall comes and goes, too, with more showers in September than any other month. But rainy days and Mondays in Punta Cana won’t get you down, because they’re the perfect opportunity to cuddle up with delicious Dominican comfort food in one of our Punta Cana all-inclusive hotels such as the Majestic Colonial. Plan to spend the rest of your time out on the water or sunbathing with your nose in a book and your mind anywhere but at work. Which brings us to the next question…
Where are the best beaches in Punta Cana?
In a region that’s lined by 22 miles of pristine blond sand and turquoise waves, sometimes the “best beach” is simply the shoreline you find when you’re ready to stretch out in the sun. When you want to revive your spirit with the energy of waterfront parties and nearby breezy bistros and bars, then the popular Playa Bavaro is the perfect place to shake out your towel. Playa Bavaro and nearby El Cortecito are the hub of nightlife, shopping, and some of the best all-inclusive hotels in Punta Cana. Stay right on the waterfront and start your day with an in-suite massage and watch the sunset as you sip your favorite rum punch from the rooftop.
Craving a little more solitude? Get out on the water at Macao Beach, located west of Bavaro and nestled against an outcropping of cliffs. Wander along the waterfront, snooze in the shade of a palm tree, or take a lesson from the Surf Club and watch the world float by from the top of a paddle board. According to locals, the south shore of Punta Cana—the Caribbean side—is home to more secluded spaces and family-friendly shallows. Steal yourself away to Juanillo, which is surrounded by luxurious resorts and fine dining. You’ve earned some “me time.” Savor it.
With all-inclusive hotels from Travelocity—like the south coast’s Casa de Campo Resort and Villas —you can treat yourself to rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Somewhere, a conference call is about to begin, but Punta Cana is somewhere else entirely.
