Punta Cana is part of the Punta Cana-Bávaro-Veron-Macao municipal district in La Altagracia, the easternmost province of the Dominican Republic. The area is best known for its beaches and balnearios, which face both the Caribbean and Atlantic, and it has been a popular tourist destination since the 1970s.

The Punta Cana area has an estimated population of 100,000, with a growth rate of six percent.

To the north, it borders the village and beach of Cabeza de Toro, and then the Bávaro and El Cortecito beaches. The nearest city, the 500-year-old capital of the Province Higüey, is 45 kilometres (28 mi) away, and it takes about an hour to drive there. Europeans, particularly Spanish hotel chains, own all but two of the 50+ megaresorts of the Punta Cana tourism destination.

The province’s 100 kilometres (62 mi) coastline tends to be mildly windy. The ocean waters are mainly shallows, with several natural marine pools in which visitors can bathe without any danger. From north to south, the main beaches are Uvero Alto, Macao, Arena Gorda, Bávaro, El Cortecito, Las Corales and Cabeza de Toro, all north of the cape; and Cabo Engaño, Punta Cana and Juanillo south of the cape.

Bávaro is an area starting from Cabeza de Toro until Macao Beach. As the hotels started to rise along the East coast, Bavaro itself became a center of services with shopping malls, fast-food stores, drug stores, fine restaurants, banks, clinics, workshops, supermarkets, and schools. The major town in the district is Veron, now bigger than Higüey in territory, a spontaneous – and poor – urban development running along the original road from the west. Veron, last name of the French proprietor of a timberline business in the early 1930s, is now the base-city for hotel workers and related. It has, besides Bavaro, one of the only four gas stations in Punta Cana. The very next is located 48 kilometres (30 mi) west in Higüey, at the Fruisa crossroads, with a new Texaco gas station opened April 2010, 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) south of Macao beach, and the new Shell gas station close to the airport (on the highway Coral) opened at the end of 2010.

Eighteenth-century statistics show most islands with upwards of 75% male populations. At times, the power of imported women proved even stronger than the power of armies, as in the surge of the French in the 16th century toward Haiti. The French advanced their takeover of the western and of Hispaniola by sending women to the island to turn the buccaneers into farmers and family men. Likewise, the British advanced their colonization of Jamaica when Oliver Cromwell sent 1,000 Irish women to the islandBayahibe Dominican Republic

To travel to an exotic destination means to travel back in time, where life is moving in a slow, peaceful pace and where modern elements are rare to be seen. An exotic destination means unspoiled nature, white sandy beaches, crystal-clear waters and memorable moments. To dive and enjoy the beauty of the marine life, of the amazing coral reefs, to swim with dolphins, to feed the sharks, these are all experiences that rejoice both the body and the soul. If you want to do this and many more, you should definitely try a visit to Punta Cana, the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic, an ideal place to unwind and leave all cares behind. Punta Cana is renowned for the hospitality and friendliness of the locals, for its tropical climate, with average temperatures of 26°C, and of course for its coastline of white sandy beaches.
