Book These Dates For The Cheapest Flights To Punta Cana

When it comes to planning the perfect spring break, start with booking the most convenient flights. This year, the peak spring break period falls between March 4 and March 11, when the highest number of young travelers head out for their annual vacation. While those dates may be the most convenient, they are also the most expensive.

To save on airfare, book flights for late February or early March. Travelers flying from Atlanta – the largest U.S. hub for air transit – can find plenty of good Spring Break deals for just $175 round trip in late February with Frontier. Meanwhile, travelers departing from New York can snatch a round-trip flight for $340 on those same dates with American Airlines, with other hubs having similar-priced flights.

Choose Party-Friendly Accommodation 

Punta Cana is a mecca for partygoers thanks to its warm tropical culture and unmatched hospitality.

Some of Punta Cana’s craziest parties are experiences on tours where guests can enjoy music, food, and drink alongside some stunning tropical scenery. A party unlike any other, Punta Cana’s top-rated party boat is offering a special Spring Break deal for $65 per person on its luxurious 42-foot boat.

Safety First

While a Spring Break in Punta Cana is a bucket list experience for millions of Americans, safety should always come first. Sun, alcohol, and countless hours of partying until late at night come with risks. Even though Punta Cana is one of the safer Caribbean destinations, petty crime remains an issue, and travelers should keep a close eye on their belongings and stick to resort and commercial areas.

Travelers should also avoid purchasing and consuming illegal narcotics; the Dominican Republic is known for its stringent anti-drug laws, and tourists are no exception to the rule.
