We all know that most parts of the world have “seasonal conditions” that usually translate to rain, cold, or even snow. Fortunately, if you have booked your stay at an Isle Blue villa in Punta Cana, you won’t have too many concerns where inclement or unfavorable weather is concerned.
Naturally, as someone visiting the tropics, you may experience a time when rain threatens. The good news is that most storms or showers pass by quickly, and yet you may want to have some half-day activities on hand if you learn it will rain. Even better news is that Punta Cana has a surprising number of things to do when or if it rains during your holiday. If you would like some help booking some of these activities, don’t hesitate to contact your concierge for help.
The best place to be during heavy downpours is indoors, but perhaps even more exciting is to head underground. Did you know that you can actually spelunk in Punta Cana? At Los Haitises National Park, you can book a tour in Fun Fun Cave. This can be an all day or half day adventure that involves everything from rappelling to dining inside the gorgeous caves. There are also horseback riding options through the park.
Did you know that cacao farming is huge in Dominican Republic? It is, and at the ChocoMuseo, you can learn all about the chocolate industry, the processes used, and yes…you get to taste a lot of samples. You can even book space in one of the workshops and learn all about making your own chocolate at home!
Rain doesn’t spoil anything beneath the waves, and you can overcome the crowds at the most popular spots by opting to do some scuba diving on the overcast or rainy days. There are two sunken ships, coral reefs, and so much more. Talk to your preferred provider, and see what their terms are for inclement weather. You will be surprised to learn that most are happy to take you diving on rainy days, as long as there are no strong winds.
The Dominican Republic, and Punta Cana in particular, is home to some of the finest resorts and cultural institutions. Many of them offer regional learning opportunities that range from cooking and art classes to language lessons and even salsa dancing. Perhaps you would like to forget waiting for the rain and use this opportunity to take up salsa dancing with an expert or master local cuisine in the four star kitchen of a local resort?
Of course, with the resorts and golf courses of Punta Cana also come spa services too. Whether you opt to head to a spa to while away a rainy day or you get in touch with an Isle Blue concierge to discuss some in-villa treatments, this could be a wonderful touch to your rejuvenating holiday.
If you have advance warning of a rainy day, you may want to consider a visit to Santo Domingo. Whether you drive yourself or arrange a tour, a few hours in the Colonial Zone, the lighthouse and the cathedral and the surrounding areas are well worth the journey.
While guests in an Isle Blue villa will find it easy enough to spend a rainy morning or afternoon in the comfort of their luxury living spaces, it is a lot of fun to get out and enjoy some of the amazing opportunities in Punta Cana. If you find it is going to rain, you can get in touch with your concierge to discuss your needs.
