A fine finger dipped into the Atlantic and Caribbean, Punta Cana has been a storied vacation spot since the 1970s, and is today among the most exclusive resort destinations in the northern Caribbean. Of all the many resorts and hotels dotting the coast, the Puntacana Resort & Club, one of the first developed here, remains the standard-bearer.

Rent a private Villa at Tortuga Bay or The Estates at Puntacana for a long-term stay. For a shorter getaway, choose from a room, suite, marina apartment or beach casita at the Puntacana Hotel.

Casitas especially are ideal for a weekend getaway with friends. Nestled amongst swaying palms just moments from the lapping blue sea, each of the two- or three-bedroom casitas includes an outdoor living and dining room and a garden or terrace for private sun-bathing and al fresco meals beneath the stars.
