A growing number of world-class resorts in the Dominican Republic are launching unique packages that allow travelers to experience the country’s vivid tropical culture and pristine nature.
Going far beyond what is expected from a top-rated resort, these properties aim to create unforgettable memories that highlight unique local elements, such as nature, culture, and gastronomy.
From cenote adventures to culinary classes, here are some of the most prominent resorts offering special experience packages for guests to enjoy.
Paradisus by Meliá: Nature Meets Culture
Paradisus by Meliá recently revamped a broad range of experiences at its Punta Cana resorts by focusing on the essence of the Dominican Republic’s vibrant culture and nature.
According to the hospitality firm, guests are increasingly keen on getting up close and personal with the local lifestyle and wildlife, and that’s exactly what Meliá is now offering travelers.
Paradisus Palma Real, a prime beachfront all-inclusive, is one of the latest Meliá properties to include experience packages with a focus on authentic nature. Guests are invited to join a private excursion on board a catamaran to a secluded beach, where they’ll connect with nature and discover the magic of Punta Cana’s tropical environment.
The resort will regularly change its experience offerings depending on the season; with dozens of top-rated beaches, islands, and cenotes, there’s no shortage of awe-inspiring natural attractions in Punta Cana. And when it comes to local culture, travelers can look forward to dancing, cigar rolling, and rum tasting, just to name a few examples.
