Festivals in Punta Cana

Edit This
There are a few Punta Cana Festivals to keep in mind when traveling to this area of the Dominican Republic. Each has its own different theme and most are held during the summer months when the majority of tourists are vacationing.

Caribbean Festival (Daily from April to December)

The most exciting festival in Punta Cana to take part in is the Caribbean Festival. More than just a mere festival, it's more like a daylong boat excursion and festival in one. Board the festival's catamaran and cruise through crystal blue waters where guests are allowed to swim with sharks and stingrays, plus do a bit of snorkeling. Then interact with a stingray under the boat crew's supervision, by feeding and holding them. You'll then board the boat once again to cruise along the Bavaro coastline to another location to snorkel some more and view many different types of beautiful tropical fish. In this area, you're again able to feed the fish and interact or swim with them. Toward sunset, head back to the boat for drinks, appetizers and dancing. The crew members dance first and show off their unique skills and then the floor is open to all guests to participate. At the end of the day, your catamaran cruises back to shore where buses are waiting for the guests to take them back to their individual hotels.

Punta Cana Wine and Food Festival

Come to the Wine and Food Festival of Punta Cana, held in the early part of June each year at the exotic and exclusive Club Med Resort. Try world class cuisines, the finest of wines, plus many more events and experiences that you must see and taste to believe.

Zumba Fitness Music Festival

Every October, Punta Cana hosts the Zumba Fitness Music Festival, an exclusive weeklong festival of Zumba Fitness and Dance. If you're unfamiliar with Zumba, it's the creation of celebrity fitness trainer, Beto Perez which combines Latin dance moves and fitness aerobics. At this festival expect to have fun in the sun, on white sandy beaches, plus all the delicious healthy cuisine you can handle. You'll also have an entire line of Zumba classes provided to you on a daily basis by licensed Zumba instructors and wonderful musical accompaniment by live Salsa bands to enrich your experience. In the evenings, enjoy guest DJ’s and dance marathons as well as your own opportunity to become a licensed Zumba fitness trainer.
