Admiring the sunrise on the beach
PFor early risers, there’s nothing like starting the day off with a spectacular sunrise. One of the advantages of Sirenis Punta Cana Resort is that it’s located on the east coast of the Dominican Republic, on the shores of the immense Uvero Alto Beach, with miles of white sands and crystal-clear waters, which is also the perfect setting to marvel at the stunning colours that come with the sunrise. Simply breathtaking!
Enjoy eating, but eating well
Food will be another highlight of your trip to the Dominican Republic, as Sirenis Punta Cana Resort serves up an amazing range of culinary delights. Themed restaurants take the centre stage here. New Mexico, for example, brings the very best Mexican flavours to Dominican lands, while Route 66 serves up signature dishes of American cuisine. What’s more, there’s El Rancho, a classic steak house with the finest selection of meats, and Rodizio Restaurant “La Gira”, which was fully refurbished in 2017. Italian flavours are found at Cinecittà, while Jade boasts a menu based on mouthwatering Asian recipes. There’s also a place for Mediterranean cuisine at the wonderful Mare Nostrum restaurant, but if you’re someone who demands quality and refinement, then Il Giardinetto will be waiting for you with its finest regalia. And of course, if you fancy something simple and laid-back, the snack bars Bohio and Batey serve great dishes at any time of the day. All that’s left to say is Bon Appétit!
Diving in the crystal-clear waters of Punta Cana
Punta Cana is an ideal place for enjoying a tropical holiday, and also perfect for snorkelling lovers. In this case, we’ll head over to Isla Catalina, a nature park that perfectly epitomises Caribbean beauty. The true head-turners here are the immense reefs that surround the island, turning it into an exotic paradise. The inhabitants of this island are fish of all colours, sponges, turtles, and much more. To see them, simply dive down to El Muro, a unique spot where fauna and flora cover the island’s shores, while El Acuario has several shipwrecks, now home to Caribbean fauna, particularly impressive when explored snorkelling.
Learn how to dance bachata at Playa Bávaro, Punta Cana
Probably one of the most emblematic beaches in the whole Dominican Republic is Playa Bávaro, a little piece of paradise for a dream holiday. With turquoise waters, white sands and palm trees everywhere, it may sound like a cliché, but this is the true essence that makes everyone fall in love with this coastline. Playa Bávaro is a great place to enjoy Dominican Republic nightlife. The nights here have a soundtrack of merengue and bachata, so it’s a great idea to learn a few steps and let yourself be carried away by the rhythm of the Caribbean after dark.
Swimming among sharks
If you’re looking for thrilling emotions, Punta Cana gives you the chance to swim among one of the ocean’s most admired creatures. Marinarium is an impressive park where you can experience swimming among sharks and rays. There’s no need to worry because the trip is totally safe, and you can enjoy the great atmosphere on board the boat, which also has a glass bottom to admire the underwater seascape. A unique memory that will make your holiday in Punta Cana unforgettable.
Trip to Isla Saona
The Cotunamabá Nature Park, located in the east of the Dominican Republic, cherishes a gem of incalculable beauty. It’s the wonderful Isla Saona, one of the largest islands in the country, which is embraced by beaches of fine white sand lapped by the intense Caribbean blue, with hundreds of palm trees lining the coast. Join us on a trip to explore the best-kept secrets of this island, a fantastic way to delve into the natural beauty of Punta Cana!
A dip in the pool and Sirenis Aquagames
The huge pools around the resort are constantly inviting you to take a refreshing dip in them, with two of the biggest boasting an access resembling the shoreline. There are also two separate shallower pools for the little ones. Luxuriating in the water or doing a few lengths are the ideal plan for any holiday afternoon.
If you want some fun and a bit of an adrenaline rush, there’s nothing better than climbing up and down and under and over the multiple water attractions and slides of Sirenis Aquagames, the best way to combat the Caribbean heat.
Pamper yourself with a soothing massage
Nothing is overlooked at Sirenis Punta Cana Resort, which is why to ensure the total relaxation of guests there’s a team of experts in body treatments who will make sure that disconnection is guaranteed. Imagine lying in a booth with a window overlooking the sea while you enjoy a soothing massage, or a hot stone treatment… the possibilities are endless!
Carnival in Punta Cana
What could be better than celebrating the carnival in a tropical environment? Guests at Sirenis Punta Cana Resort can experience it at first hand. This event floods the streets of Punta Cana with colour on the second Saturday of March, with international groups and music to the beat of bachata, merengue or salsa. A prime example of how Dominicans know how to celebrate this fiesta in style with typical music and costumes and masks that give it a genuine touch. Punta Cana is definitely the most original option to celebrate this year’s carnival.
A tropical sunset in Bayahibe
Bayahibe is a coastal area where you’ll enjoy a perfect holiday moment in the Dominican Republic. It’s located in the region of La Romana within the Punta del Este National Park, so a natural environment of sublime beauty is guaranteed. And sitting on the shores of Bayahibe is a true pleasure for the senses, where you can spend hours worshipping the sun until dusk arrives. This is when the horizon is dyed with warm colours that make this landscape even more incredible. All that remains is to raise a glass to such stunning beauty with a good Dominican rum.
