Release your inner explorer and plan a guided tour or jeep excursion of the lush, green national park and jungle on Bavaro’s doorstep. The morning is the best time to be in the jungle, before the tropical heat rises at midday. Next, bag yourself a shady beach hut right by the water and make the most of the sunshine, before wandering up the beach to find a local restaurant for some tasty fresh seafood. The nightlife here starts late, and you can keep it low-key with a cold beer on the beach or at a live music bar.

The world-renowned beaches are Bavaro’s best attractions, earning their reputation with tropical beauty that looks straight off a postcard. Imagine stretching out with a cocktail on soft white sand, enjoying the hot Caribbean sun through a shady palm-leaf parasol. Idyllic and utterly relaxing, the beaches are well stocked with amenities so that you never have to wander far. Laid-back beach shacks run along the waterfront, serving drinks, snacks and souvenirs. If you’re feeling particularly energetic, head down the beach to hire some water sports equipment; you might discover you’re a natural water-skier.

Bavaro is an area of staggering natural beauty, and when you can tear yourself away from the beach, there are lots of things to do in Bavaro’s great outdoors. The Del Este National Park is just an hour from the resort, a huge expanse of dense, steamy jungle that is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Inviting adventure, the jungle is an exciting place for 4x4 excursions, spotting wildlife and even zip lining. Rare species in the area include Caribbean pelicans, hawksbill turtles and off the coast of the park, bottlenose dolphins and humpback whales.

The region’s near-perfect climate invites all kinds of activities in Bavaro, particularly out on the ocean. The resort is popular for day cruises that include dropping anchor and swimming or snorkelling in the clear water. If you’re on holiday around February, you’ll be in time for whale-watching season, where you can head out to catch a glimpse of humpback whales. Bavaro is a fantastic place for keen golfers, with numerous golf clubs and courses set in beautiful coastal surroundings. The Bavaro Golf Club is a local favourite, with 18 holes and world class facilities.
