Recreation Parks

Locals and visitors enjoy a number of recreational parks around the country, designed to fit around natural surroundings. Punta Cana’s selection is the vastest, ranging from one-stop hiking, ziplining, and sinkhole swimming at Scape Park, to bungee jumping and Segway tours at Bávaro Adventure Park. In Puerto Plata, Ocean World Adventure Park is a hit with the children, who love getting up close with dolphins and seals or splash from the pool slide, while Fun City is for go-kart fun. In Santo Domingo, the waterfront Plaza Juan Barón offers go-karts for kids, and a full children’s playground at Playa Güibia.

Recreation parks are open year round, and are ideal to keep the family entertained in one spot.
