The East Coast

The 50-km eastern coastal stretch from Uvero Alto Cana is for people of all ages who are primarily in search of rest, relaxation and water fun. All-inclusice resorts prevail in this area, making vacations very carefree. Because of the lovely beach settings, weddings are frequently held at resorts. Most hotels attract families by offering child friendly facilities. The area has gone upscale, with a handful of award-winning boutique hotels and luxury resorts. Most of the older hotels in the area have renovated to offer larger plush facilities, seeking to cater to the more discerning baby boom tourist and the affluent young that seek the ultimate in comfort in the Caribbean.

Getting around
While Punta Cana’s interior roads often seem like a labyrinth, there is some logic to them. They basically lead to the Uvero Alto/Macao area to the north, the Arena Gorda, Bavaro, El Cortecito, Cabeza de Toro area in the center of the East Coast hotel strip, or to the Punta Cana/Cap Cana area to the south. The new expressway has considerably cut driving time between the airport and the most northern resort area. There is an express bus service from Punta Cana to Santo Domingo, with a stopover in San Pedro de Macoris. There is also service to La Romana.

Most visitors will take advantage of the excursions offered at the hotels, for which transportation is provided. Taxi service is available at hotels and car rentals can be obtained for those wanting to tour the area independently. The locals get around using public transport minibus and van service that is also available to tourists but must be taken from outside the hotels.
