Home to an opera of colourful singing birds, naturally-formed swimming pools and idyllic gardens produced by Mother Nature’s careful attention. Scape Park Cap Cana is your perfect escape.

2. Soana Island


An easy day trip from Punta Cana, beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, until one sets their sights on this island. The ubiquitous description for this small spot of sand is “paradise.” Talk to us about arranging a tour of the island, accessible by a high-speed boat which provides opportunities for fishing and snorkelling along the way.

3. Dune Buggies


It’s amazing to be on a resort, but Punta Cana excursions showcase so much more of the beautiful Dominican Republic. One way – namely, the fun way!– to admire the island is on a sand dune buggy.

Suited for all ages, your trip includes a helmet, goggles and of course the buggy, where you can self-drive or ride as a passenger. Pass quaint fishing villages, verdant farmland and stop in restaurants with your guide for a taste of the local life, all the while enjoying stunning ocean and beach scenery.
