Punta Cana Map – a helpful and detailed map of Punta Cana’s Resorts

When looking for a place to stay in Punta Cana, a map of all the all-inclusive resorts in Punta Cana might come in handy to see the location of each hotel. This gives you a better feeling about how far it is to the neighboring resorts, to the main road, to the Punta Cana airport or to Punta Canas’ beaches. However, Google Maps might not completely help in this case. Therefore, we have created a couple of Punta Cana maps for all hotel areas in the Dominican Republic’s most favorite tourism destination to make it easier to locate your resort. In this article, you’ll find a map of Cap Cana, Punta Cana, Cabeza de Toro, Bavaro, Arena Gorda, Macao and Uvero Alto, all with the locations of each hotel creating the most detailed map of Punta Cana’s Resorts.

This collection of Punta Cana maps shows the location of each all-inclusive resort in the area of Punta Cana. If you are about to book your vacation in the Dominican Republic, check out this comprehensive guide about how to find the best all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana.
If you are looking for a map of Punta Canas’ beaches, you can find it here.

A Punta Cana Map of the entire area – the overview

Let’s start with a Punta Cana map of the entire area. With over 90 all-inclusive resorts in 7 hotel areas, Punta Cana is the Dominican Republic’s most important tourism destination. Sometimes it is hard to know where each accommodation is located on the map, what it is surrounded by and how far it is to other places, for example, Punta Cana International Airport.

Therefore, it is recommendable to first have a look at the following Punta Cana map, where you can see the different areas of where the all-inclusive resorts in Punta Cana are located.

An overview of all the different resort areas in Punta Cana

Punta Cana can be roughly divided into 7 areas:

  • Cap Cana
  • Punta Cana
  • Cabeza de Toro
  • Bavaro
  • Arena Gorda
  • Macao
  • Uvero Alto

Cap Cana is a gated community with exclusively luxurious villas and high-end hotels. It is the newest part of Punta Cana, with a lot of areas yet needed to be developed.

The actual part of Punta Cana is just a small village constructed in the recent 10-20 years. With Puntacana Resort and Club Med, there are just a few resorts and villas. Punta Cana Village is also right next to Punta Cana International Airport.

Cabeza de Toro is a tiny area north of Punta Cana Village with 7-8 all-inclusive resorts. There is not much around besides these accommodations.

Bavaro is the hotspot of Punta Cana’s all-inclusive resorts. It features most accommodation including apartments or small guesthouses, is home to the famous and beautiful Bavaro Beach and hosts a couple of beach clubs and beachfront restaurants. It is the most active area of Punta Cana.

Arena Gorda is directly adjoining Bavaro Beach (or, depending on the definition, it is part of it), with another array of more than two dozen Punta Cana all-inclusive resorts (which you all can see on the Punta Cana maps below). There are no public access points.

North of Arena Gorda is Macao, an area popular among locals and with a fantastic beach, Macao Beach. So far, Macao only features one all-inclusive resort, Dreams Macao Beach.

The northernmost part of the immediate Punta Cana area – already around 25 miles away from the airport – is Uvero Alto. Here you can find a dozen resorts scattered along the beach, but not much else.

Cap Cana Map: the hotels of Cap Cana on the map of Punta Canas’ resorts

Let’s start with the maps of Punta Canas’ resorts and first head to the most southern area of Punta Cana: Cap Cana.
This exclusive community houses plenty of stunning luxury villas and super-exclusive resorts. Together with the Punta Cana map, the Cap Cana map is the only one where we have added a few selected non-all-inclusive resorts as well, as they are often asked for and are very popular (particularly Eden Roc Cap Cana*).

As you can see on the following Cap Cana map, the resorts in Cap Cana are well-spread out. There isn’t a particular area with a lot of all-inclusive resorts, most hotels here are dotted in between golf courses and luxury villas.

A map of Punta Cana resorts in Cap Cana

The Cap Cana map includes the following hotels and all-inclusive resorts:

  • C1 Eden Roc Cap Cana
  • C2 The St. Regis Cap Cana (under construction)
  • C3 Golden Bear Lodge
  • C4 Sanctuary Cap Cana
  • C5 Margaritaville Island Reserve Cap Cana (under construction)
  • C6 Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana
  • C7 Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana
  • C8 Secrets Cap Cana
  • C9 TRS Cap Cana
  • C10 Fishing Lodge Cap Cana
  • C11 Ancora Punta Cana

Eden Roc Cap Cana, Golden Bear Lodge and Fishing Lodge Cap Cana are not all-inclusive resorts.

Eden Roc Cap Cana seems like a particularly large hotel on the map, but this is due to the resort being very spread out, with some of the villas being located in privacy next to the golf course and the beach club being a little bit further away. In total, Eden Roc only features 64 suites and villas.

Punta Cana Map: the hotels of Punta Cana on the map of Punta Canas’ resorts

When people are usually talking about Punta Cana they are referring to the entire area in the east of the Dominican Republic, which is covered in this article about the maps of Punta Canas’ resorts. However, there is also a part that can be called “Punta Cana proper” or, to use the local name, Punta Cana Village. It is the business district of Punta Cana right south of the international airport and features golf courses, luxury villas and boutique resorts along the coastline.

As you can see on this Punta Cana hotel map, there are just three major hotels in this area, which makes it particularly exclusive. Only one of those (Club Med Punta Cana) is an all-inclusive resort.

The Punta Cana hotel map includes the following accommodation and all-inclusive resorts:

  • P1 Tortuga Bay Hotel
  • P2 The Westin Puntacana Resort
  • P3 Club Med Punta Cana

Cabeza de Toro Map: the hotels of Cabeza de Toro on the map of Punta Canas’ resorts

As mentioned earlier, Cabeza de Toro is not much more than an agglomeration of a bit more than a handful of all-inclusive resorts, particularly in the mid-price segment. As you can see on the Punta Cana resort map below, Cabeza de Toro is pretty small, hence all all-inclusive resorts are easily walkable along the beach.

The Cabeza de Toro hotel map includes the following all-inclusive resorts:

Bavaro Map: the hotels of Bavaro on the map of Punta Canas’ resorts

Going further north from Punta Cana Village and Cabeza de Toro, you arrive at the vibrant center of Punta Canas’ all-inclusive resorts: Bavaro. The packed map of Punta Cana resorts already shows how many hotels you can expect here.

But why is this area of Punta Cana so popular?
First of all, Bavaro Beach is what can easily be considered one of the most beautiful and longest beaches in Punta Cana. For more information, check out the separate article about Bavaro Beach.
Second, when staying at one of the all-inclusive resorts marked in the Bavaro hotel map, you still have access to Dominican life, as they are not as remote as other accommodation in Uvero Alto or Cap Cana.

Arena Gorda Map: the hotels of Arena Gorda on the map of Punta Canas’ resorts

There is no set definition if Arena Gorda is still part of Bavaro or if it shall be considered to be a separate area of Punta Cana. However, it is a matter of fact that Arena Gorda directly borders Bavaro and that the beach of both areas is one extremely long continuous stretch of 12 miles of finest sand. Furthermore, Arena Gorda has nearly as many all-inclusive resorts as Bavaro, summing up to more than 50, which would make it impossible to add them all on one map of Punta Canas’ resorts.

Arena Gorda has a similar selection of all-inclusive resorts to Bavaro. You can choose among cheap all-inclusive resorts, such as Occidental Caribe or Caribe Club Princess, family favorites such as Royalton Punta Cana or RIU with its fantastic water parks in Punta Cana, or high-quality hotels such as Iberostar Grand or Hard Rock Punta Cana.

A map of Punta Cana resorts in the Arena Gorda area

The Arena Gorda resort map includes the following Punta Cana all-inclusive resorts:

  • A1 Iberostar Grand

Dreams Macao Beach so far is the only resort on this beautiful beach (besides a private boutique hotel called Selectum Hacienda Punta Cana*), so it is easy to locate it and doesn’t need a resort map.

Uvero Alto Map: the hotels of Uvero Alto on the map of Punta Canas’ resorts

Uvero Alto is the most northern area of Punta Cana’s hotel zone (besides the Miches / Playa Esmeralda area, which yet has to be developed and only has one resort so far, Club Med Miches*) and features around a dozen properties scattered along Uvero Alto beach. You can see the locations of each hotel below on the Uvero Alto map of Punta Cana resorts, which is dominated by popular family resorts (Grand Sirenis, Nickelodeon, etc.) and high-end boutique resorts (Excellence, Zoetry, Live Aqua, etc.). As you can see on the Uvero Alto map, the area is quite widespread, so in between the resorts you often find pristine sections of beach and beautiful wild nature.

A map of Punta Cana resorts in Uvero Alto

The Uvero Alto resort map includes the following Punta Cana all-inclusive resorts:

  • U1 Ocean El Faro
  • U2 Royalton CHIC
  • U3 Sensatori Punta Cana
  • U4 Nickelodeon Punta Cana

    1. Hey Dorothy,

      yes, there were a couple of AlSol Resorts some time ago, I think it has been even 4 of them.

      AlSol del Mar is a condo property now, the apartments are rented out on Airbnb and Vrbo. You can see them here, they are mentioned and presented in this article: https://www.puntacanatravelblog.com/accommodation-resorts/best-airbnbs-in-punta-cana/

      Parts of AlSol Tiara and AlSol Luxury Village are now Ancora Cap Cana and TRS Cap Cana.

      Cheers from Punta Cana

    1. Hi Louise,

      no, Le Sivory Punta Cana is most likely not going to open again. There was an official communication in 2020 that they won’t open again due to Covid-19 in Punta Cana.
      I guess the only scenario would be that they open in 2023 or later under new management and new brand.


  1. Hi Chris, Thankyou so much for sharing all the information here – gives such a good insight versus how the properties market themselves.
    Wondering if you can recommend which of the Bahia properties are newer/modern and ADULT friendly ? I am single woman with slight mobility issues (can’t walk a lot so prefer easy access to a beach cabana and looking to do a budget all inclusive travel to DR and don’t want to get stuck in an old musty distant property. Your help would be super appreciated. Incase you can recommend a travel agent or website whereby I can book my flight and hotel then that would be a BONUS in caps. Thankyou so much again for this website.

    1. Hi Priti,

      thanks for your comment, great that the information on Punta Cana Travel Blog are helpful for you.

      With regard to the Bahía Resort, the Bahía Ambar is definitely the newest and most modern. Just a couple of days ago I published a comprehensive review about Bahía Principe Luxury Esmeralda. It is the older sister of Ambar, but the services are the same. The hotel review also include a photo of the new Ambar rooms, so you can see it here: https://www.puntacanatravelblog.com/accommodation-resorts/bahia-principe-luxury-esmeralda-all-inclusive-resort/

      On this same review, you can also find a price comparison between different booking websites. Even though it is for Esmeralda, it is pretty similar for Ambar. You can check the current prices for Ambar here: https://www.puntacanatravelblog.com/recommendation/accommodation-luxury-bahia-principe-ambar/

      If you would like to book your hotel and flights together, you can check out the biggest tour operator to Punta Cana here (assuming you are from the US): https://www.puntacanatravelblog.com/recommendation/luxury-bahia-principe-ambar-package/
