Accommodation in Punta Cana for independent travelers.
For years Punta Cana has been the go-to Caribbean destination for travelers looking for rest, rum, and a really good time. The most common accommodation in Punta Cana are the expensive resorts on the coast. Fortunately the industry is starting to expand, and more authentic and affordable options are popping up across the island. From backpacker hostels in the countryside, a Dominican house in the mountains, to tree houses on a coffee and cacao plantation, the DR has the perfect accommodation for any type of traveler.
Sun and Surf
Macao Beach Hostel is a hidden gem just outside of the hustle and bustle of Punta Cana. Here backpackers can stay in a shared dorm, rent a private room or camp out under the stars. Macao Beach is one of the few public beaches left in the region. As a result both Dominicans and foreigners come to enjoy the beach together. The crystal clear waters, soft sand, and abundance of coconuts are sure to make for an unforgettable experience.
Relax to the Max
Another unique experience offered in the area is the coffee and cacao plantation with many accommodation options at the Taíno River – Mountain Hotel. First, guests can choose to rent an authentic Dominican house. This option provides nice space to spread out and can accommodate up to 7 people. Second, guests can choose to stay in a tree house overlooking the surrounding mountains. Finally, for the adventurous and budget travelers, the TRMH has an onsite campground. The hotel will set up the tents for you so all you need to do is show up and enjoy!
