Go Downtown

If you have been following Best Of Punta Cana, you will know that we love markets. So, when we discover one we jump on it immediately.

After all it is always nice to discover local gems!

The market starts at 10 AM and ends at 8 PM.

Foodies galore

How we love food festivals. Especially here in the Caribbean where you have such a large choice of different tropical flavors and herbs. On Saturday the 15th of June you have the chance to experience this yourself, because you can visit the Punta Cana Food Fest in the Galerias Punta Cana in Punta Cana Village. From 4 PM you can taste different cuisines and enjoy live cooking shows. This year they added a vegetarian station for the ones who do not eat meat. Definitely one of the best things to do on this weekend in Punta Cana!

After strolling down a market and filling your belly with good food you might want to dance it off!
