Christmas in Punta Cana

A Dominican Holiday

Have you ever considered trading in your typical “white Christmas” for a “toes in the sand Christmas”? This holiday season, consider traveling to the beautiful shores of Punta Cana to celebrate the holidays the Dominican way! The citizens of the Dominican Republic love Christmas and sharing their culture with others, you are sure to be welcomed with open arms to share in the revelry. Christmas here incorporates good food, music, fireworks, gifts, dancing, and all sorts of holiday cheer into a grand celebration. If you’re looking for a relaxing, yet endlessly fun holiday, read on to discover why you should choose Punta Cana for your next holiday trip!

The perfect holiday weather

Trade in frigid blustering winds and shoveling snow for a frosty cocktail and laying on the beach. The weather in Punta Cana in December is nothing short of perfect. The hurricane season here ends in November, marking December as the start of the dry season. You can expect warm temperatures with little rainfall. Daytime temperatures typically range from the mid-70s to mid-80s Fahrenheit (24-30 degrees Celsius), making it a pleasant time to enjoy outdoor holiday activities.

Beachfront celebrations

Many resorts and hotels in Punta Cana organize special Christmas events and celebrations for guests. You might find beach parties, live music, and themed dinners. Some resorts also decorate their properties with Christmas lights and ornaments, creating a festive atmosphere. Not only can you have a relaxing holiday in paradise, but you won’t have to lift a finger to enjoy the festivities!

Christmas Eve Dinner

La Noche Buena, also known as Christmas Eve, is a special, and very important, occasion for families to come together and share a delicious feast. In the Dominican Republic, great care is taken to ensure the most delicious foods are prepared for this highly anticipated night. Some of these foods are actually only made on Christmas Eve. Telera bread is a common appetizer served before the feast, and can only be found at this time of year. The star entree of the Dominican feast is typically puerco asado (roast pork) though roast turkey and chicken are also common. These delicious roasted meats usually come accompanied by beans and rice, potato and pasta salads, and plantain casserole. 

Don’t forget dessert; if you thought that was the end of the feast, think again! There are many common desserts shared around the table like fruits, flan, and sweet potato bread, but bread pudding and eggnog certainly can’t be left out!

Music and dance

Christmas in the Dominican Republic is not just a visual feast but a symphony of lively beats and rhythmic dances. The air resonates with the sounds of merengue and bachata, two iconic music genres deeply rooted in Dominican culture. The festive spirit of the music adds a dynamic layer to the Christmas experience, making every celebration a memorable and spirited occasion.

Fireworks and firecrackers

Lighting up the night sky with colorful, festive fireworks is a common tradition in the Dominican Republic. Fireworks and firecrackers are not just a visual spectacle but a symbolic expression of the joy and excitement that the holiday season brings. No Dominican Christmas is complete without this dazzling display. 

Pack Your Bags for Christmas!

This holiday season, try a getaway to Punta Cana. The celebration is sure to delight and amaze you with its warmth and charm. From fireworks to feasts, and celebrations with the perfect weather, Christmas is always done right here on the Coconut Coast. Book your Christmas trip today and get ready for the holiday season of a lifetime!
