Robert Bone, for PostMediaNews, recently posted a blog extolling the beauties of beaches in the Dominican Republic, notably Punta Cana. He writes, “To the winter weary, Punta Cana represents 20-plus miles of pure, white-sand beaches, scores of luxury hotels, and lots of sunny days with temperatures reliably in the ’80s and ’90s. Prosperous members of the burgeoning Russian middle class now have joined British, Germans, French and other continental companions with the means to escape the extremes of the Northern Hemisphere winter for a week or two…
“Most of the Punta Cana resorts are ‘all-inclusives,’ meaning that for a single price they not only provide typical hotel amenities, but also roll in all meals (even beer and house wine), and entertainment, often including lavish stage shows, classes, beach contests and dance demonstrations. The resorts have excellent, well-designed golf courses that are attractions in themselves to many visitors, who are willing to pay extra to use them.”
You can fly directly into the Punta Cana International Airport (4 hours from Atlanta on Delta). Its the busiest and fastest growing airport in our country of about nine million people. Punta Cana is a municipal district in La Altagracia, the easternmost province of the Dominican Republic.
