Silversea Luxury Cruises A Punta Cana

Punta Cana

Literally translated as Tip of the White Cane Palms, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic has earned itself a rather undeserved reputation of being a haven for cheap package holidays in recent years. Whilst there has certainly been a lot of tourism development since the 1970s, Punta Canta is actually a sweep of beach stretching from the smaller Bavaro to El Cortecito with Punta Cana proper enjoying some of the most luxurious holiday resort amenities in the world.

World-class golfing nestles comfortably with excellent clear-water diving, first-class dining and magnificent sun-kissed beaches. The temperature remains a clement 28-30˚C (85˚F) all year long; making it not that unsurprising that tourism has grown in recent years. However, Punta Cana remains an a perfect spot to enjoy fresh seafood with locally grown plantain and rice, washed down with a Pina Colada, and watch the sun set over the spectacular beach.
