The Punta Cana beaches extend for some 30 miles along the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic. Lining this picturesque stretch are a group of large all inclusive resorts where the living is easy and the pleasures many. More and more travelers are enjoying Punta Cana all inclusive vacations every year, and as a result, the number of Punta Cana all inclusive resorts is growing. There are all inclusive hotels in Punta Cana to fit virtually every taste and preference, so finding the right one for you shouldn’t be a problem. Of course, the luxury resort hotels will cost you more, but overall, most of the resorts are competitively-priced. This is because the bulk of the Punta Cana all inclusive resorts offer similar vacation experiences. When you enjoy Punta Cana all inclusive vacations, your accommodations, your meals, your snacks, most or all of your beverages, and a long list of available activities are all covered in the price.

While there are many similarities between the deals that the Punta Cana all inclusive resorts offer, there are also some differences, so there are some things to consider. As mentioned, the rates at most of the Punta Cana all inclusive resorts are competitive, meaning that most are priced within the same range. The bulk of the resorts here fall into the 4-star category, but you can pay extra for a 5-star stay if that is your aim. There really isn’t a bad time to visit Punta Cana, and tourists flock here year round. However, December through May is arguably the best time to go, as the weather is most ideal and the threat of hurricanes all but completely absent. The rates at the all inclusive resorts in Punta Cana can go up during this peak season, especially around Christmas and New Year’s, which sees the most significant price increases.

Once you’ve narrowed down your top choices when it comes to the Punta Cana all inclusive resorts, you will want to look closely to see what the different all inclusive deals entail. Whereas the 5-star Dreams Punta Cana Resort and Spa allows you unlimited meals in its a la carte restaurants, for example, the 4-star Sirenis Punta Cana only allows a limited number of a la carte experiences per week. The rest of the time, you will eat at buffet restaurants, which all of the resorts have. The buffets are excellent due to their variety, and when it comes to dining in Punta Cana overall, variety is never lacking. Remember to pack some nice clothes when visiting the all inclusive hotels in Punta Cana, as most of the a la carte restaurants at the hotels require something more formal than shorts and flip-flops.

On top of the dining options, you will also want to pay close attention to what kinds of activities the different all inclusive resorts allow in their plans. Some, if not most, of the Punta Cana all inclusive resorts have spas, and unfortunately, you will have to spend extra to enjoy spa treatments. Tours that take you off of the resort grounds will generally cost you extra as well. Activities that are generally included in the all inclusive rates at the all inclusive hotels in Punta Cana include non-motorized watersports, such as snorkeling and windsurfing, different sports, like beach volleyball and tennis, and various fitness-oriented classes, like aerobics and yoga. Some of the resorts even offers things like dance lessons, cooking classes, and introductory scuba diving lessons.

In addition to the overall rates, the different dining plans, and the availability of certain activities, those considering Punta Cana all inclusive vacations will also want to consider the overall atmosphere of each resort. The Excellence Punta Cana Resort and Spa is an adults-only resort, for example, thus making it ideal for romantic getaways. Families with kids, on the other hand, might prefer a more family-oriented resort, like the Occidental Grand, or the Majestic Colonial. All of the resorts in Punta Cana offer some kind of nightlife, though you will find the party scene to be a bit more lively at certain ones. If you are planning to hit some bars and clubs until the wee hours during your visit, then a more party-friendly resort like the Club Med Punta Cana might be an ideal choice. If it’s a more subdued and quiet romantic resort that you are after, then perhaps the small and adult-oriented Sivory Punta Cana will better fit the bill. All of the resorts have multiple bars, but some close theirs down earlier than others. It is worth mentioning that in addition to a list of bars, most of the Punta Cana resorts also have a casino.

Getting to the Punta Cana all inclusive resorts is made easy by the fact that visitors can catch flights directly into the Punta Cana airport. Depending on which end of the spectrum you are on when it comes to the map of the Punta Cana resorts, the length of your ride to the hotel from the airport will vary, however, it shouldn’t ever take more than an hour. In fact, you can get from the airport to most of the resorts in under 30 minutes. You’ll be kicking back and sipping on a refreshing beverage on your private balcony or terrace in no time! Once you’ve settled in at your respective resort, you can begin to take advantage of all that Punta Cana all inclusive vacations have to offer.
