Beach life in Punta Cana and Puerto Plata

Bigger is better in Punta Cana. Take the Ocean Blue & Sand hotel in Bavaro — it’s got six à la carte restaurants and sweeping sea views. The Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar Don Pablo Collection is another option — especially if all-out luxury is your thing. Puerto Plata, on the north coast, is the place for non-stop activities. Rum factories, fortresses and a mountain cable car are just some of the must-dos.

Hideaway hotels in Samana and La Romana

Fancy spending your nights somewhere off the tourist trail? Go for Samana, where waterfalls and rainforests drape the peninsula. Try the Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa for size — coconut palms cloak the clifftop pool. Dreams La Romana Resort & Spa is another top retreat. Luxury touches include beach waiter service and deluxe rooms.
