La Yola is undoubtedly one of the finest dining experiences in Punta Cana. The restaurant sits on stilts over the shimmering, turquoise waters of Punta Cana marina inside the grounds of Puntacana Resort & Club just south of the airport (see Map 7). La Yola takes its name and architectural design from the local wooden fishing boats.
Under a cana thatched roof diners can enjoy an excellent selection of Mediterranean and traditional Dominican cuisine and fresh seafood. Most of the seafood is caught locally by the fishermen at the marina. Fishing around the area is strictly monitored by the Marine Conservation Department of the Puntacana Ecological Foundation. A coastal marine project has been set up to evaluate the coastal waters and encourage the local fishermen to practice sustainable fishing. So the locally caught fish you eat at La Yola will be both deliciously fresh and eco friendly! Read More→

For those who grow fatigued with the all-inclusive scene, want to explore but remain near the surf, the search for public bars and restaurants is not only fun but necessary for vacation survival. The crawl could be done solo or as a couple, but it’s great in a group.
In early March 2011 our group of ten walked approximately three miles from the Ocean Blue & Sand Resort waaaaay down to Los Corales. Hunger and thirst prevailed. With all the private resorts along the way, where do you stop for food & beverage refueling? Find out here… Read More→
Driving there you pass through the little town of El Macao, and as you reach the crest of the hill you’ll see the beautiful sight of Macao beach spread out before you. Read More→
