Punta Cana definitely has some amazing all-inclusive resorts. But there’s so much to do away from the resorts! Here are 10 Punta Cana picks directly from you, the agents on VAX.
1.The Monkey Land Half Day Safari takes you to an area where you get to interact with the spider monkeys as they go around you and take food from you. Plus they take you see some of the vegetation that grows there and what the uses are, and they show you how they make coffee and cocoa.

2.Visit Altos de Chavon. It’s a beautiful scenic ride to the charming town with amazing views.

3.Take a short, half-day dune buggy trip. You get to see the locals and country side.

4.If you have clients staying in Uvero Alto, they will much appreciate a private transfer. It is a little further than Bavaro Beach and Cap Cana but they’ll experience a quicker check-in and a less stressful return home.
Lisa P., Traveling Person in Iowa
5.Ride horses along the beach. The horses are so well-trained you can actually enjoy the ride, the ocean breeze and the scenery without having to worry about being a great rider.
Monica B., KHM Travel Group in Ohio
6.Visit Macao Beach and Saona Island. Both are absolutely beautiful.

7.The Santo Domingo tour was one of the best excursions I have been on. The old buildings and the Cathedral of Santa Maria la Menor are unbelievable.
Linda H., Sunrays Travel in Missouri
8.Take the time to explore one of the islands just off the coast – most of the resorts offer day trips with activities, and it's well worth the extra cost

9.We really enjoyed the Dr. Fish Ocean Spa excursion as it allowed us to relax, get a massage, float in the ocean, have a tasty lunch (with wine!) and get our feet nibbled on by little fishies.

10.Snorkeling is very popular in Punta Cana and it can be done by taking an excursion to the aquarium. You won't be disappointed. The fish are amazing!
