Punta Cana Holidays

GENERAL

White sands and swaying palm trees

Kick back into the relaxed Caribbean way of life on a Punta Cana holiday from The Co-operative Travel.

Punta Cana is on the Dominican Republic's eastern coast, and promises to deliver all that¿s good about a Caribbean beach holiday, all along the length of its 20-mile coastline.

The white sands and swaying palm trees are exactly as you would picture a Caribbean beach to be, but there is plenty more to explore under the warm water's surface. An offshore coral reef the length of the resort will captivate those who take the plunge.

A favourite way for people to experience Punta Cana is on an all-inclusive holiday, and when the buffets laid on by many of the hotels are as good as they are here, you can easily see why - there's simply no need to venture any further.

Each hotel has its individual style, which may well dictate which one you choose, and many organise a busy programme of activities which might encompass golf, horse-riding or go-karting on land, and, out at sea, windsurfing, sailing and kayaking.

Jack Nicklaus and Nick Faldo are among those to have lent a hand in designing some of the newest golf courses, but you might not care about that once you experience some of the amazing views which they offer.

And if you¿ve always wanted to swim with dolphins, then don't miss a trip to nearby Dolphin Island. Getting in touch with your wild side is also an option, on a tour through the tropical jungle of the Punta Cana Ecological Reserve.

If you're not going all-inclusive, then Punta Cana's restaurants and bars are sure to tempt you, with their combination of delicious fresh seafood, served against a backdrop that¿s equally mouthwatering.

So if you thought the Caribbean couldn't awaken your senses, think again. A cheap holiday to Punta Cana from The Co-operative Travel certainly will!
