Punta Cana Travel Tips
Best Hidden Beach: Playa Limon
Playa Limon is a 2-mile isolated and hidden beach lined with coconut trees on the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic. Completely off the beaten path, this beauty is untouched by resorts and restaurants so you'll have to bring your own food, towels and so on if you want to hang out there.
Best Lunch on Bávaro Beach: Jellyfish Restaurant
You'll find delicious lobster and seafood meals on the menu at the Jellyfish Restaurant on Bávaro Beach. It's really close if you're staying at the Melia Caribe Tropical -- just a short walk south. And it's beachfront too, so you'll have a gorgeous view of the beach and ocean while you eat.
Best Off-Resort Restaurant
Noah's is in a strip mall just down the street from the entrance to the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe. It's got everything: superb American/continental cuisine featuring fresh fish, steak, pasta, pizza and sushi. Make sure to try the fried camber and the Italian eggplant dip for appetizers. And don’t miss the flaming Crème brûlée either. Delicious!
Best Way to Learn the Culture
If you really want to see the beauty of the culture, take a safari tour through the area. You'll see more of the natural terrain past the beaches, and learn about the natural goods that the Dominican Republic produces from the area. Most of these tours also take you to plantations to see how coconut, sugar cane and coffee is grown.
