Just because you’re on a tropical getaway doesn’t mean you can’t stay current on your pop culture. Justin Bieber is set to rock the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana on April 15, 2017. We dare you to not dance and sing along with his smash hits.

Kite Surfing

Travel to the north coast to Samana and spend an afternoon out on the sea. From January-March, majestic humpback whales make their way through the crystal clear waters. Not a boat person? No problem: Punta Balandra is the perfect place to hang out on land and watch these majestic mammals glide through the sea.

Just 25 minutes from the popular tourist destination of Puerto Plata, Cabarete boasts warm waters and the perfect wind conditions for kiteboarding. This fascinating sport has found a home in this coastal village, with the Maitai Freestyle Invitational being held here in 2016.

Sure, there’s beautiful beaches in Punta Cana, but don’t forget about the lush mountains! Hop on a super cool safari-style truck and venture into the mountainside where 18 zip lines await.
