New York, New York

Home to more than eight million people, New York City is the most populated city in the country. The metropolitan area is served by three major airports, LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy International in the borough of Queens and Newark Liberty International in nearby Newark, New Jersey. All three airports offer flights to Punta Cana each day, with JFK offering nonstop service on JetBlue and American and Newark offering nonstop service on United.

Ample parking is available at the airports for short-term or long-term stays. At JFK and Newark, parking costs $18 a day; at LaGuardia, parking costs $66 for the first two days and $18 a day thereafter. Many travelers choose to taxi to the airport and save the expense of parking. From Manhattan, a ride to LaGuardia will cost around $30 plus tolls, a ride to JFK will cost $45 plus tolls, and a ride to Newark can cost $55 or more. Public transit is also available to all three airports for budget-minded travelers.

These are large, busy airports with numerous passenger amenities. As such, getting a bite to eat before your flight is as easy as walking through the terminal. Each airport offers a wide range of eateries, from sit-down establishments like Chili's to fast-food counters like McDonald's.

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Located in the Caribbean on the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana is a popular tourist destination, home to more than 50 resorts. Proximity to the beach, beautiful weather year-round and a wide range of activities and historical sites contribute to its continued popularity.

Exploring Punta Cana

Upon your arrival at Punta Cana International Airport, you can hire a taxi or rent a car. Avis, Hertz and Dollar all operate near the airport and offer complimentary shuttle service from the terminal to their counters for those who have reserved rental cars. Many visitors take advantage of shuttles arranged by their hotels or resorts for transportation from the airport.

The weather in Punta Cana is mild and consistent throughout the year, with average high temperatures around 85 and average lows around 74 degrees Fahrenheit. May through November see slightly warmer temperatures and much higher humidity than the rest of the year. Peak travel season runs from October through April, and prices tend to be significantly higher during those months. Those who can stand the humidity can save a great deal by visiting during the summer months.

Punta Cana and its surrounding area offer beautiful architecture, miles of beach and shopping and dining options. At Manati Park, you can swim with the dolphins and view exotic plants and animals. Altos de Chavon, situated atop a cliff above the Chavon River, is an artists' village, designed in the style of a 1500s Mediterranean town, where you can view the work of local artists, explore an archaeological museum and take in the view. You can also enjoy snorkeling, diving and simply sunbathing along the coast.
