Where is Punta Cana?

Planning a trip to the Caribbean soon? Can’t decide where to journey to exactly? Well, Punta Cana may very well be the place for you. “Punta” in Spanish translates to the English words “point” or “cape” and “Caña” which was later changed by its American investors to “Cana” translates to the English words “cane” or “palm trees”.

Whatever the case may be this “Cape of the Sugarcanes” or “Point of Palm trees” is located on the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic, abutting both the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean and boasts a variety of attractions that will guarantee a fun-filled and memorable vacation.

History of the Punta Cana – Bavaro Area

Prior to American investment in 1969, the region was a low population fishing village which lacked modern infrastructure and was filled with dense jungles. However, upon encountering the natural  beauty of the previously named Punta Borrachon (‘the Drunken Point) which consisted of white sand beaches, clear water ,coconut palms , lush vegetation and breathtaking coral reefs , the American investors began to see its potential  and established Punta Cana’s first hotel in 1971 which was named the Punta Cana  Club. The tourism industry was slow at first and was nothing compared to what we see today.

Population of Punta Cana today

The Population of Punta Cana has been estimated to 43,982 with an annual growth rate of 6% based on the last census conducted in the Dominican Republic in 2012.

The Punta Cana Club had only 10 rooms and a maximum capacity of 40 guests which was only accessible by a dirt airstrip which could only accommodate small planes. Word of this brand new exotic getaway spread and in 1978 the French built the 350 room Club Med Punta Cana. Owing to this expansion in a tourist capacity, the multimillion dollar Multinational Company Colgate subsequently built a road which reduced travel time and in 1984 the first commercial airstrip was built by the owners of the Punta Cana Resort which further increased tourist arrival.Several improvements were made to diminish the remoteness of the area and in 2012 the new Coral highway connected this town to the rest of the island.
