Last month, I escaped the looming Wisconsin winter for a few days in the Dominican Republic, taking a look at the newest and best resorts in the Punta Cana region. The D.R., which occupies the eastern half of the island of Hispaniola, has been one of our clients' most popular winter getaway destinations for a long time. Based on what I saw, that's not going to change anytime soon.
Visitors to the Dominican fly in to Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ), and the resorts, with their fabulous beaches, are only minutes away. COVID protocols were much in evidence on my flight and at the airport, and I felt safe all the time.
Forty minutes from the airport, my first destination awaited me, the resort which would be our base for four days of exploring the best of Punta Cana. Dreams Macao Beach is a great family property, with a kids core zone, waterparks for both adults and kids, a spa and nightly beach parties. You can even bring your small dog!
