To enjoy a multitude of family activities in Punta Cana, I highly recommend visiting Bavaro Adventure Park. This amusement park has limitless opportunities. This amusement park has limitless opportunities to spend some quality time with your family. Safety is always an issue when traveling with children, but the Dominican Republic is relatively safe and easy to travel with children.
Compared to other parts of the Caribbean we've been to, the Dominican Republic is quite prosperous and most of the coastal towns are relaxed, quiet and safe. Only some parts of Santo Domingo (which is the largest city in the Caribbean) can be quite dubious, but stay in the old town and you'll be absolutely fine. Punta Cana's waters also tend to be more turbulent, and important beaches may not be a good option for young children. But that doesn't mean you don't have options.
Arena Gorda, a beach located next to many hotels, has extensive sand and shallow waters, making it ideal for families with young children. Your hotel, especially if you book an all-inclusive resort for families in Punta Cana, is most likely right on the beach. Among all those incredible beaches in Punta Cana, Playa Bávaro is one of the most family-friendly options in Punta Cana. Playa Bávaro, as it is called in Spanish, is extremely wide, has only occasional waves and has a fairly gentle slope, which makes Playa Bávaro one of the best beaches for a family vacation in Punta Cana.
There's tons of sand to build sandcastles, it's easy to splash around in the ocean and if your kids want to play soccer or any other sport that requires some space, there's more than enough, since the beach is never crowded. Without a doubt, the biggest attraction is the wakeboard circuit, which is unique in Punta Cana and an excellent option for teenagers. If you haven't decided what to do in Punta Cana with children yet, I recommend that you take them to Sirenis Aquagames. Bavaro Adventure Park is very close to the hotel zone of Punta Cana and Bávaro, so if you are looking for activities for the whole family in Punta Cana with very short transfer times, this is the tour you should book.
In addition, compared to the animal activities mentioned at the beginning of the article, diving is an excellent activity in Punta Cana to see the beautiful underwater world in its natural habitat. Ziplining is definitely one of the most exciting activities to do in Punta Cana with your family, so make sure you don't miss it. Punta Cana is perfect for all ages and offers ample space so you can move around comfortably if you have a stroller. Even individual activities are not as extensive as if you were booking a single excursion (for example, La Hacienda park has 5 cables instead of 12 when you book a complete zip line adventure), offers an unbeatable price-price ratio and guarantees a perfect day in Punta Cana with children.
While some of these tours aren't suitable for kids, a family buggy adventure is a perfect option if you're looking for things to do in Punta Cana with kids. During this snorkel excursion, you'll head to a reef away from all the party boats in Punta Cana. If you want a little more action, you can take a banana boat ride or go parasailing to see Punta Cana from the air*. Punta Cana is a beautiful tourist city in the Dominican Republic, which stands out for its crystal clear waters and kilometers of pristine sandy beaches.
To give you a better orientation between these activities in Punta Cana for families, I have added the recommended age for each excursion in Punta Cana. The Outback Safari-Adventures is perfect if you and your tribe want to experience Punta Cana to the fullest. There is no doubt that Punta Cana is not the Mecca for divers in the Caribbean. There are some interesting places, especially some wrecks and reefs around Punta Cana and the beautiful underwater world of Catalina Island and Saona Island.
Royalton Punta Cana, Hyatt Ziva, Grand Sirenis, RIU Resort and Now Onyx are some of the hotels with the largest water parks in Punta Cana...
