If you are planning a Punta Cana vacation with a loved one as a romantic getaway or to celebrate an engagement, marriage or anniversary, you will want to know about the host of romantic things to do in this enchanting tropical paradise.

Make Your Stay Romantic

One thing you might consider before you visit Punta Cana is whether to stay at an adults-only resort. Providing an ambiance that is quieter and more conducive to romance, a resort of this type is probably going to be your best choice.

With nothing against kids, an idyllic vacation for romance does not include little people running around the pool, splashing and screaming. Set the stage by choosing a resort that is romance-friendly.

Adults Only Options

With some of the adults-only resorts as being all-inclusive and upscale, you won’t have to worry about budgeting for fun, water activities, and dining. A few of the resorts that cater to romantic couples and honeymooners include:

  • Secrets Royal Beach Punta Cana
  • Sanctuary Cap Cana
  • Portblue Le Sivory Punta Cana
  • Breathless Punta Cana Resort and Spa

Romance Happens

Escape to a beach without crowds or take a day trip; it’s all possible with a variety of tours and trips that are offered to travelers to Punta Cana. Choose from adventure, relaxation, stunning views, exploration and more that offer a setting for romance in this tropical landscape.

You might be thinking of leaving your resort for the day to head out to a secluded beach with your honey. There are several trips that you can take; although you may be with a group at some points, some lovely spots offer a setting for romance.


The Samana day trip through Miches takes you to Samana, with stops at the beautiful Limon Waterfall. Get ready for an adventure as your nine-hour trip involves travel by land and water. You might even get to ride horses through a beautiful tropical forest. The day promises to be filled with magical memories.

Saona Island is reached by boat and is the setting where the movie, Blue Lagoon, was filmed. A speedboat takes you out to the island where you will stop in a natural pool of transparent water that is waist deep.

Surrounded by starfish, you’ll enjoy the magical relaxation of nature. Wade or swim at Isla Saona; you can also visit the open bar, lounge on the beach, eat a Dominican lunch and more — all with your sweetie. Even if you never saw Blue Lagoon, you’ll become inspired and in love with the stunning beauty of Saona Island.

A secluded beach awaits you both as you and your love lounge the white sands of Macao Beach, sheltered by idyllic coconut palms. Macao Beach also offers dune buggy rides and is the ideal place for either a quiet afternoon or a fun water adventure. Stunning views and a drive of only 20 minutes make this a great romantic escape.


One tip for a great stay; when you go outside the resort, do not drink the tap water. For your health and comfort, drink only bottled water on your adventures.

Get lost in the beauty of nature as you escape to Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park, a reserve that is home to birds, fauna and an amazing Dominican flora. You’ll fall in love with its ten lagoons, called ‘eyes’ because of their oval shape by the Tainos.
