Here are the top reasons to choose the tropical destination for your next working holiday or workation.

Modern Co-Working Spaces

Even though Punta Cana is traditionally associated with all-inclusive luxury resorts, new coworking spaces are continuously popping up across the town. Built with modern business needs in mind, they offer cheap rates, comfortable furnishing, and high-speed Wi-Fi. 

Some of the newest and top-rated coworking spaces include CanaWork, a networking hub close to Punta Cana International Airport. With 24/7 access, CanaWork is perfect for those who work across multiple time zones, and their membership starts at $90/month. 

PHYEX’s Work Punta Cana is another good option and is located just 3 minutes from the city’s airport and is becoming a hotspot for entrepreneurs, businessmen, and designers thanks to its multi-use spaces. Featuring an ergonomic interior design, the coworking space is offering a free trial to new members.

Excellent Availability Of Accommodation 

Travelers can combine their holiday with a little bit of work by taking advantage of dedicated workation packages that include discounts and perks. Club Med is one of many hospitality firms offering discounts on longer stays, with upgraded Wi-Fi among other benefits.
