Things to do in Punta Cana: Hoyo Azul
We know that the life at the resorts in Punta Cana is extremely enjoyable. But the great thing about this paradise is that there is a lot of things to do outside of the resort. And one of the Best Things to Do at Punta Cana is an excursion to the Hoyo Azul!
Hoyo Azul, which means Blue Hole, is an extraordinary cenote of blue crystalline fresh water located in the grounds of the prestigious Cap Cana. This natural pool is located at the side of a cliff, were you can dive directly to the water and have a great time swimming and admiring the beautiful scenery.
This marvelous pool is located pretty close to the resorts of Punta Cana. You can get there in 30-45 minutes depending the location of your resort. When there, you will need to hike to the lagoon, which is pretty close to the road. But please consider, that depending the excursion that you booked, the hike might be much longer if you are visiting other attractions of the area. It can go from a fifteen minutes hike to two hours hike. Also, most of the excursions limit the minimum age of the children to six years old.
You can definitely get there by yourself, but we at Top Punta Cana Resorts suggest that you book an excursion with your resort or with a recognized tour operator when you want to visit Hoyo Azul. As Hoyo Azul is pretty close to the resorts, and you won’t stay there for a full day, most of the excursions add a second leg, normally a longer hike around the area or a stop at a zip line attraction.
So, when you want to explore the beautiful area of Punta Cana, remember that hoyo Azul is one of the best things to do at Punta Cana!
