One Hot Destination! Minimize

Punta Cana is Hot!

We sell Apple Vacations to Punta Cana -  to book your reservations call 1-877-380-4142

bahia principe ambar

Punta Cana is one of the most requested vacation destinations requested by you, web visitors browsing Judy and Maria's Travel website.  A Punta Cana Vacation offers vacationing guests   spectacular beaches - 40 miles of unspoiled beach line the coast.

Tropical warmth year round.  Spectacular all-inclusive hotels offering guests value-added travel at an affordable price.  Championship golf, casinos, nightlife and elegant spas. Punta Cana is the land of eternal sunshine and friendly faces.  Judy and Maria's Goal: through our photographs, reviews and unique travel experiences we would like to introduce to our web visitors this fascinating country and it's people.

Airport 

Punta Cana Airport has a beautiful thatched roof and is an open-air design.  Upon arriving at the Punta Cana airport, each passenger is required to purchase a $10.00 tourist card before entering customs.  After retrieving luggage and clearing customs, arriving passengers will be greeted by their tour company representative and directed to board the correct bus for transfer to their resort. 

Climate

 

sun_palms_sm_clr.gifTravelers will find that Punta Cana has a tropical climate.    The hotels are low-rise and beautiful.  The grounds are lush and tropical with foliage, lagoons and palm trees along with peacocks, flamencos, ducks, parrots and other wildlife stroll the hotel's grounds. The summer months tend to be very warm and very humid. We suggest cool, loose fitting, cotton clothing – so pack light. The majority of the hotels are very large and spread out – like small cities. This means lot of walking. Some hotels have golf carts and trams to accommodate guests’ needs. Punta Cana has so many great resorts that will meet every expectation:   golf, scuba, fishing, windsailing, yachting, fine dining, relaxation, spas, children's programs and more. Our sales staff is knowledgeable and available to consult and recommend the perfect resort to meet your expectations.

 

When to Travel to Punta Cana

The wettest times of the year are May-June and October-November. If you're worried about storms, the Caribbean's hurricane season lasts from June to November. The peak tourist season is between mid-December and mid-April, but this has more to do with the weather in Europe than local conditions in the Dominican Republic. Prices and visitor numbers decline significantly outside these months. Easter and Christmas are the peak local travel periods.

 

Travel With Minors

 

Minors traveling with only one parent or adults other than their parents must have a notarized letter from the absent parent(s) authorizing them to be taken out of the country. If the parent is deceased, a copy of the death certificate will be required for check in at the airport. Children under 14 years of age are not required to have photo identification when traveling with parents.

Riviera Maya is a 112 mile stretch of paradise along the coastline of the Yucatan Peninsula

Explore the Yucatan
Riviera Maya Hotel Areas

Riviera Maya is Diverse

Hotel areas include:

  • Akumal
  • Playa del Carmen
  • Puerto Aventuras
  • Tulum

 The second largest reef system in the world, the Great Maya Reef, runs along the coastline and an unrestrained jungle surrounds the towns and beaches. In this part of the Mexican Caribbean full of exotic tropical animals peering or flying through the branches, there are many places to explore. A unique and complex underground river system flows beneath the surface and visitors with magical caverns, caves and cenotes (sinkholes). There are also hundreds of archaeological sites, remnants of the incredible and timeless Mayan civilization, and a spectacular and plentiful marine life.

Exploring the Yucatan Peninsula

With a mix of world-class resorts, natural wonders and ancient ruins, the Yucatan Peninsula provides entertainment for explorers of all ages.  From full-service resorts to amazing ruins and fascinating jungles, the Yucatan Peninsula sets the scent for memories of a lifetime.

Quintana Roo:  Something for Everyone

In addition to the spectacular white sand beaches and turquoise sea, vacationers can dive into such adventures at the Cancun Underwater Museum (MUSA) with 400 underwater sculptures; the Cancun Maya Museum; and swimming with the whale sharks.  One of the Riviera Maya's newest attractions, Xplor, is a natural adventure park with 14 ziplines, underground river rafting, cave swimming, ATV's and more.  Farther south is Tulum an ancient Mayan city overlooking the Caribbean Sea.  A trip to Tulum can easily be combined with a stop at nearby ruins Muyil or Coba.  Or recommend the full-day exploration of Tulum and the Mayan Jungle, which includes snorkeling, swimming in cenotes, a jungle tour, a traditional Mayan purification ceremony and more.

Yucatan Mayan Splendors

West of Quintana Roo, the Yucatan is home to one of the best known Mayan sites, the magical and mysterious Chichen Itza.  One of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the fascinating complex thrills visitors with its Temple of Kukulcan pyramid, Ball Court, temples and platforms, and nightly sound and light show.  Swimming in the fresh clear waters of Yucatan's cenotes is a great way to cool off.  Families can combine a dip in a cenote with a trip back in time at Hacienda Sotuta de Peon, a grand restoration of a henequen hacienda, where visitors tour on wooden platforms pulled by mules, visit a typical Mayan House, enjoy typical Yucatan cuisine and more.

Campeche:  Traditional Haciendas

South of Yucatan, Campeche is home to the Mayan ceremonial center of Edzna as well as the World Heritage colonial city of San Francisco de Campeche.  Former haciendas are dotted throughout the state, providing visitors a window into traditional Mexican days of yore. 

Riviera Maya Hotel Areas

The resorts of Cancun and the Riviera Maya are legendary, a family playground at multiple price points.  

Playa del Carmen:  37 miles south of Cancun (approximately a 45 minute drive) halfway to Tulum.  Playa del Carmen was once nothing more than a dock from which ferries departed fore Cozumel, it is now one of the most sophisticated tourism centers along the Riviera Maya.  Visit Fifth Avenue's trendy restaurants, bars and shops.

Puerto Aventuras:  Puerto Aventuras offers ecological tours, water sports and fishing.  Stop at the San Carlos Marina and enjoy its cafe's and restaurants.

Akdolphinjohn.jpgumal:  Akumal is an approximate 70 minute drive south of Cancun.  Akumal is a gathering place for divers from around the world due to its proximity to subterranean rivers and caves with depths of up to 150 meters.

Tulum:  At the southern end of the Riviera Maya, Tulum combines the mystery of ancient Mayan civilization with the beauty of the Caribbean Sea.  After exploring the ruins, cool off in the natural aquarium of Xel Ha, a snorkeler's paradise.

Visitors will fly into Cancun and enjoy a scenic drive south to fascinating Riviera Maya, with its unspoiled pristine beaches, tropical jungles and ancient Mayan ruins. Snorkel in crystal clear turquoise waters. Enjoy the best values under the sun as a vast array of fabulous new all-inclusive hotels. Also known as the Cancun Tulum corridor, this nearby area of lush, natural coastline from Cancun south to Tulum is home to several attractions that should not be missed on a Cancun vacation

The 100 km stretch known as the Riviera Maya is in the middle of the northern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo. Here the towns are smaller and there are fewer tourists with miles of solitary virgin beaches, sparkling white sand and crystalline turquoise waters.

A Riviera Maya Vacation

To the south of Cancun, the Riviera Maya offers a unique and different experience. With its wide expanse of beaches and proximity to Mayan cultural sites, it is the old world meeting the new. Thousand-year old ruins lie within sight of luxurious mega-hotels offering every amenity imaginable. For Golfers there are a variety of challenging courses to choose from. Many hotel's here are all-inclusive, offering all meals, drinks, tips, and entertainment at one price, an attractive option for budget-conscious travelers and families.

Relax all day in a hammock beside the Caribbean Sea or walk the powder-white sand beaches that stay cool as they reflect the heat of the tropical sun.

Visit the nearby town of Playa del Carmen, with shops featuring local art and handicrafts, where you can take the ferry across to the island of Cozumel.

Uncover the ancient culture of the Mayans and visit ruins that reveal their lives and beliefs. Afterwards, cool off with a swim in a cenote, a freshwater pool bringing water from underground limestone caverns to the surface.
