Things to Consider

Before you head to tropical Punta Cana, check out our tips for making the most of your oceanfront vacation with insider pointers and helpful guidelines for your stay. 

Getting to the Resort

Most people travel to Punta Cana by air, and several airlines fly direct to the Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ) in the Dominican Republic. 

Fly with American Airlines, Delta, jetBlue, KLM, Frontier Airlines, United, Southwest Airlines, or Spirit Airlines for nonstop flights to PUJ

Once you touch down in Punta Cana, getting to your resort is easy by booking a private or shared airport transfer, taking an airport shuttle (if your resort offers this perk), renting a car through one of the best rental car companies, or hailing an airport taxi or ride share service. 

Crime and Safety

Punta Cana is one of the safest Caribbean cities to visit with relatively low crime rates and most crimes being petty and nonviolent, like pickpocketing and tourist scams. 

Few crimes occur in resort settings, so visiting Punta Cana at an all-inclusive resort offers you a lot of protection. Staying within your resort can keep you out of potentially dangerous neighborhoods and busy areas where scammers target tourists.

Being right on the ocean means Punta Cana can deal with severe weather events that can be dangerous. Traveling during seasons with low storm risk can help you stay safe. 

Hurricane season lasts June through November each year, with September and October being the peak of the season. Try to schedule your stay outside of this period if possible. 

Traveler Tips

  • US dollars are acceptable currency. While the official currency is the Dominican peso, US dollars are accepted at most locations, especially at the best all-inclusive resorts in Punta Cana. Traveler’s checks are also accepted here. 
  • You’ll have to travel if you want to explore nature. If you enjoy spending a lot of time exploring nature and the great outdoors, know that you’ll need to arrange transportation or rent a car. Punta Cana is a resort town and jungles, waterfalls, and secluded beaches are found further outside of town. 
  • The water is safe to drink. While other gorgeous tropical locales are sometimes known for unsafe tap water and ice, Punta Cana’s best resorts exclusively use filtered water for drinks and ice. You’re safe drinking the water here – another reason it’s one of our favorite destinations.
