Enjoying your days in Punta Cana? Well, you are going to enjoy them, even more, when you follow our tips in BOP´s weekly for this weekend! We listed some of the most exciting things to do in Punta Cana for you!  So, get out of the resort, hotel or apartment you are staying in and hit the streets!

Food for change

Attention all foodies! You can eat and combat climate change and protect biodiversity at the same time. Where? At the Mediterraneo restaurant at Eden Roc Cap Cana. You know the boutique hotel, we mentioned on BOP before. From the 4th till the 7th of October the Food for Change festival is taking place there. Expect a special climate-friendly menu based on local, seasonal products in the spirit of the Slow Food movement. Get more information about this event here. This could be one the most exciting things to do this weekend.

Escape to DR

If you are someone that is not that into slow food, but more into fast Soca rhythms, than you are very lucky this weekend. You will have the chance to party from today until till Tuesday with artists like Popcaan and hip-hop star Yo Gotti. Some of the parties take place in hotel Barcelo, but don’t let that spoil your fun if you are not staying there. You can also join the festivities at Imagine and Pearl Beach Club, where tickets at the door can be bought. Warning, these parties are not for the faint hearted. Get more information about the event here.

The colors of music

Arts and culture lovers can pass by the Punta Cana Academy of Music and art tonight (Friday). Renowned local artist Ralph Solano, and famous composer and conductor, Dante Cucurullo, will be giving an innovative performance during the opening’s ceremony of their show/ exposition “Los Colores de La Música”.
