If ziplining is not your cup of tea but you want to have as much fun and action as when flying in the air, you should consider a buggy tour in Punta Cana.

Buggy tours are available for all kinds of travelers. You can book a dune buggy excursion for as cheap as 40 USD per person if you just would like to have some fun and get dirty.

No trip to Punta Cana would be complete without some time spent on its gorgeous beaches. Playa Bávaro is one of the most popular shorelines in Punta Cana, with its white, powdery sands, swaying palm trees, blue waters and bevy of amenities, including water sports rentals, dining options and nearby accommodations. Visitors will find this beautiful (but busy) beach stretched between El Cortecito and Cabeza de Toro, but keep in mind that the public access point is a road just south of the Meliá Caribe Beach Resort. Boats bound for the Dolphin Island water park embark from Bavaro Beach as well.

Manati Park, founded in 1996, was the very first theme park in the Dominican Republic. It’s a place where visitors can enjoy five amazing shows and discover more than 150 species of animals, including sea lions, manta rays, horses, and parrots. Through several education and investigation projects, Manati Park aims to preserve nature and all of the species in the park. Another fun activity to try is swimming with dolphins in the Dolphin Island Park. Some lucky visitors might even steal a kiss from one of the dolphins. There are food and beverage facilities in Manati Park as well as two beautiful natural wells in which visitors can enjoy a relaxing soak. See extra information at Taylan Evrenler.
