With some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean,
Punta Cana is a popular sun-and-sand destination. All-inclusive resorts and
lounging poolside are the name of the game, but there's still plenty of
local flavor beyond the hotel gates. Springtime, after the snowbirds have
vacated the island but before hurricane season begins in June, can be the
perfect time to save money.
Captain Cook’s: Punta Cana is the perfect place to satisfy your cravings for seafood, and there’s no better place to do it than Captain Cook’s. Situated right on the beach, this simple eatery serves up favorites such as fresh lobster, shrimp, and paella just a stone’s throw from the water’s edge. And if you’re really in the mood for something exciting, try a drink of mamajuana, an island specialty rumored to have healing and aphrodisiac qualities. Meal prices average between $20 and $45 per person.
