2. Check Out Historical Santo Domingo
Even if your hotel is in Punta Cana (which is likely where it will be), you should still think about taking a day to explore Santo Domingo, the oldest city in the Americas. Several day-long tours will take you to all the most exciting sites in this historical city. From the centuries-old cathedrals to the 15th-century monuments to the local markets open to browsing tourists, there’s plenty to experience in Santo Domingo.
