The Bávaro region and Punta Cana region come together to form La Costa del Coco, also known as the Coconut Coast, which is home to opulent all-inclusive resorts. Zip lining, windsurfing, kayaking, and sailing are all popular there. The dry season, from November to April, is the ideal time to explore Punta Cana. The weather is bright and warm throughout this period, with typical highs of 26°C (79°F). The wet season, which lasts from May to October, can be hot and muggy with daily highs of 32 °C (90 °F). The Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ), which is only 20 kilometres (12 miles) from the town core, makes Punta Cana quite accessible. Many significant cities in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Latin America provide direct flights to the airport.
