Hop on and see the real Dominican Republic, beyond your resort in Punta Cana. Leave Punta Cana and travel towards Higuey, which is the largest city in the Dominican Republic's eastern region.

Highlights

  • Learn about the 500-year-old city of Higuey
  • Relax at the stunning coastline of Macao Beach
  • Hear about locals customs at a traditional Dominican home

Description

Explore the 500-year-old city of Higuey, the capital city of the eastern La Altagracia province of the Dominican Republic. Higuey means Land of the Rising Sun in Arawak and was once controlled by a large Taino Indian kingdom who were eventually decimated by Spanish conquistadors. Visit the Basilica, a Roman Catholic cathedral housing the over 500 years old painting of the Altagracia Virgen brought here by Spanish missionaries. The cathedral's importance was solidified with Pope John Paul II's visit in 1992. Then, enjoy a traditional home-cooked buffet of rice and beans, meat, salad, plantains, sweets, and coffee. Experience this meal in rustic country surroundings, just the way it should be.  Next, head to Macao Beach, which is one of the most sought-after coastlines in Punta Cana. Macao's amber sands and azure waters attract beach goers and surfers alike. Only locals know Macao's value as a prime destination for fresh fish and lazy Sunday afternoons with friends. Now enjoy an hour of free time to wade in the Caribbean Ocean, recline on the beach's soft sands, or people watch while refreshments are served.
