Water Body · Nature / Park
Take a refreshing dip in the brightly colored pool of Hoyo Azul, a water-filled cavern. You'll need to hike a little way along wooden walkways and via various entry points to reach the cenote, so bring sturdy shoes. Consider getting a guide to show you orchid gardens and other fauna along the way. Don't forget your swimming gear--especially some goggles--to help you get a good look at the formations below. Keep moving to stay warm in the cool water. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Hoyo Azul by using our Punta Cana holiday planner.

  • Beautiful cave swimming or jumping into the water from a platform. Someone there to help if needed. Go check it out if you visit Punta cana.  more »
  • Absolutely must do! Most beautiful sight of our adventure. You can walk in or jump in, life jackets are available but not required. The water is cool and refreshing and the most amazing in nature! Its crystal clear. Photos will be taken but are all included in your photo purchase not extra per photo (we laid 40 $ for over 80 pictures from our day which included the boat trip, the monkeys, parrots and zipline)
  • A must visit place. Highly recommended.
