Tour description

Go swimming in a secluded cenote (a natural sinkhole) on this eco-tour from Punta Cana to Scape Park, a lush adventure park in Cap Cana. With a guide, hike along a nature trail, pausing en route the way to check out orchids, cactus and other plant life. When you come across Hoyo Azul cenote at the bottom of a cliff, jump in the clear turquoise water for a refreshing dip. Hotel transport from Punta Cana is included. You have a choice of departure times to suit your schedule.

After hotel pickup, head to Scape Park, an eco-adventure park inside Cap Cana, a luxurious residential and resort area just south of Punta Cana. When you arrive at the park, start your 2-hour nature tour by hiking along an ecological trail with your experienced guide, who will tell you about the native wildlife and plant life that make up this Dominican Republic ecosystem. See species of orchid, fern, bromeliad and cactus, stopping at each station of plants to get an up-close look. Then arrive at Hoyo Azul, a cenote whose name translates to ‘Blue Hole.’ This natural pool of crystal-clear blue water, which fills a sinkhole with steep limestone walls, sits at the base of a giant cliff and is the perfect place to cool off. Walk down the wooden staircase and hop in to enjoy a refreshing swim for about 30 minutes. After hiking back to your starting point, your tour ends with return to Punta Cana for hotel drop-off.
