Weekend waves are overflowing our Punta Cana office. Time to go out, get some sun and a drink or two! This weekend, we have some fun things to do in Punta Cana for you. Chilling, powerful art and the best golf tournament? Besides – it’s the start of Semana Santa this weekend! Let’s go.  

Chill at Onno’s Bar

On your fun things to do in Punta Cana list you must include this bar.  Onno’s Bar  hosts many cool nights, from Monday Madness to Ladies Night everyThursday, to Mexican Night on the Wednesdays. In the weekend, Onno’s likes to
relax on Kick back Sundays from 5pm to 2am. Happy hour is every week day from 5to 8pm, so grab your chance on Friday! Located right near the beach, this Bar is the best spot for some good chill weekend vibes.

Special screening of Un Acto de Rebeldía Al Día

This Sunday, Colao Café in Cap Cana hosts a special screening of short film Un Acto de Rebeldía Al Día. This film / audiovisual project was directed by Isabella Bretón and written by Gabriela Ortega and exhibits microaggressions from day to day, empowering women through small acts of rebellion. A must-see. This film showed in Los Angeles and New York and features many awesome performers. During its launch at Mamey Librería y Café, the short film was screened nine times to more than 450 people. Attendees were able to perform their “acts of rebellion” through an interactive art installation. The event starts at 2pm in Café Colao and is free. Go and support this creative team!

This is the very first PGA golf tournament in the Dominican Republic and Punta Cana is very proud to be the host! Enjoy the excitement of a big sports’ tour and want to see the winner bag $3 million?

Fun things to do in Punta Cana during Semana Santa

This Sunday, Semana Santa starts in the Dominican Republic! This (inter)national holiday is the biggest in the country and means days off for the local residents. If you’re visiting the Dominican Republic in the time of Semana Santa, it will be a little bit busier in certain places. In Punta Cana, expect beaches full of people and a town buzzing with liveliness. Want to escape the crowds? Check out one of our secret secluded beaches! Enjoy this Holy day!
