Long Walks through Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park

Sure, much of a romantic beach vacation will consist of long walks on the beach, but variety is a spice worth savoring — as is a long walk through the Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park. This lowland tropical forest is 1,500 acres of stunning. Besides the scenic trails allowing for transcendent strolls in bliss among enchanting flora and fauna, peppered throughout the park are 12 surreally clear lagoons (five of which you can swim in). With nonexistent crowds compared to the bustling beaches, think of this rainforest excursion as quick dip into your own personal Eden.

Chocolate at the ChocoMuseo

Feed … Your Sweet Tooth at the ChocoMuseo  

Of all the foods in the world, few have as storied a history at seducing taste buds the way chocolate does; its place in the annals of romance is well-earned. With that, it’s no wonder that one of the most romantic things to do in Punta Cana is visit the ChocoMuseo. Don’t let the name fool you: ChocoMuseo isn’t just a museum. This decadent temple to the mighty cocao tree doesn’t just take you through the fabled history of the plant and the science of the treat today — ChocoMuseo is also a functioning artisanal chocolate factory. You and your sweetheart can get a hands-on lesson in how cacao beans are prepared, as well as the added treat of taking home your own hand-made bonbons for later savoring.

Bavaro Adventure Park

Experience Heart-Racing Thrills at Bavaro Adventure Park

For a more high-octane option, head to Bavaro Adventure Park. The name barely scratches the surface on the offerings: You and your heartthrob have no shortage of adrenaline-inducing activities. Zip lines, mountain biking, bungee trampolines, eco tours, horseback riding and flight simulators are just a few of the possibilities that will have your spirits soaring. If you’re the kind of couple who revels in seizing the day together, then zorbing down a hill (picture: a hamster ball, but for people!) is most definitely in your wheelhouse.

Couple on Beach

Pamper Yourselves Silly at a Luxurious Beachside Resort

At the end of the day — or for the better part of your day — there’s nothing more romantic than soaking up serenity together at your resort. But, with the abundance of the Dominican Republic’s choices, knowing which resort is best for you specifically can feel like picking chocolate from a heart-shaped assortment: You never really know what you’re going to get.
