endure packed beaches in July and August as well as the week before Easter. If you’re heading here during the summer, keep in mind that the Dominican Republic is very vulnerable to hurricanes that blow through the Caribbean, especially during August and September. For the most bang for your buck, plan your vacation during the fall and spring, when temperatures are still pleasant and the seasonal crowds have rolled up their beach towels to head home.

The locals are friendly and eager to help you enjoy your stay (even more so if you buy some special local rum!). Punta Cana is a multi adventure trip. You can lay on the beach all day, or go hiking, snorkeling, boating, ATV riding, you name it.

This is one of the most glorious places I've ever had the pleasure of visiting! You literally feel like you're in paradise. And you are! The people are so sweet and its like time stands still. To say this place is beautiful would be an understatement. I really can't describe this place. But beware, girls do go topless on the beaches. It is illegal but they don't police it. There aren't very many that do, but they do.

The best thing about travelling is that regardless of the destination that you choose, you will have a list of interesting holiday activities to choose from to make your vacation most memorable. You cannot miss out on excursions in your preferred destination, especially the more adventurous ones that bring out that dare-devil in you. You will be exposed to tons of travel excursions through different travel agencies as well as cruise lines. Excursions can be categorized into leisure, adventure, family and romance.

Leisure excursions - They are most ideal for people who would rather have relaxing and calm vacation experiences by the beach or poolside and even spas. Cruises and plane tours make it to this list as they offer a calming but exciting tour. These kinds of excursions are usually also made up of special accommodations and meals among other features to complete the leisure package.

Adventure excursions - They are more daring and will involve both the body and the mind. They are what many travellers choose and they can be made up of anything from swinging on vines in a forest or cycling through the mountains. They are ideal for individuals with good health considering that some of the terrains can be treacherous. They offer an exciting way of discovering the destination and everything that it has to offer and they therefore can vary from one destination to another.

Family excursions - They give families the chance to enjoy holidays together. The activities are designed to be suitable for both the younger and older members and they can be selected based on what all the members will find fun to do together. They can be competitive to add a spicy twist to them where the members can pair up or the children to compete against the adults. They can also include activities such as fishing and buggy riding.

Romantic Excursions - They can be just what honeymooners need to make lasting memories. The packages include romantic meals, solitude, champagne and even a spa treatment. The two can also take part in the adventures they love together to enjoy the honeymoon in style. It can actually be much fun when one person recruits the other into an activity they have never tried before or are scared stiff about. The selections will of course depend on what the couple finds most suitable for the time together.

When going on a holiday to any destination, you will be faced with a huge list of possible excursions and you can choose to match with your individual preferences. The fact is that most of these excursions are cheap and this gives you the chance to take up as many as you wish. Your choices can influence how much you get to enjoy the destination and the unique exploration methods you can enjoy to make a difference during the holiday. There will be something exciting for any holiday budget and for the people you are also taking with you for the holidays to make those memorable moments and bonding.

Punta Cana excursions are some of the most exciting you can enjoy. They are made up of buggy rides, safari discoveries and Catamaran snorkeling among many others. The most amazing thing is that they are all very cheap and affordable.

Punta Cana, on the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic, has golden-sand beaches. The resorts are spread out along the coast of the green countryside with mountains in the background. Beautiful.

DR has all-inclusive resorts on every one of its coasts but Punta Cana is pretty much the rock star of the bunch. It has the best beaches on the island (think soft white sand, towering palm trees, and lots of secluded spots), and some of the newest/updated resorts in the DR too.

The only catch is that you're out there, as in no major (or even minor) cities so any nightlife/partying is pretty much confined to the resort you stay at (some, however, have sister resorts so you can at least check out a few different scenes).
