Budget Travel Ideas in Punta Cana

Edit This

Punta Cana is a beach resort-oriented community in the Dominican Republic. The main attraction of Punta Cana as a tourist destination is the beautiful beaches of the Caribbean Ocean. Because Punta Cana is mainly a beach resort community, it is not one of the easiest places to travel on a budget. Most of the resorts are very luxurious and can be expensive. If Punta Cana is where you want to go, however, there are ways to keep your budget at a reasonable level while still enjoying the pristine beauty this tropical paradise has to offer.

Do Your Homework

One of the best ways to keep costs down on a vacation is to plan ahead. Figure out a couple of your top choices of where to stay, and keep an eye on them for a couple of months to look for sales. The most expensive time to travel to Punta Cana is approximately from November to April, so if you can book your vacation off season you will save some money. Also, think about what you will be doing on vacation. If you want to scuba dive, get certified at home, where it is much cheaper. This will also allow you to spend more time on your vacation doing what you want to do, rather than spending a whole day in a swimming pool getting your scuba certification.

Take Advantage of the Perks

Since many of the resorts at Punta Cana are very high end, you will usually have a lot of perks that come with simply lodging there. If you're the kind of person who wants to spend every moment of their vacation doing some fun and exciting activity, you're going to have a hard time keeping the prices down on your vacation. On the other hand, if you can enjoy the natural beauty of your surroundings and resist the urge to indulge in high-priced helicopter tours or the like, you should be able to get out of Punta Cana on a reasonable budget. Most hotels, in addition to the beach access, have multiple swimming pools, sauna's and hot tubs, and game rooms. When you book your trip pay attention to what you're paying for. If you want to have cocktails every day on your trip, then a resort that includes free drinks might be a good idea, but if not, you can probably find a similar resort without the free drinks that will be cheaper.
