Winter is approaching faster than you can say brrrr! Many of us spend this busy time of year dreaming of a tropical escape from the frosty air and crazy schedules. But thoughts of sandy beaches and towering palm trees have been replaced with concern for those Caribbean islands affected by recent storms. The aftermath of hurricanes Irma and Maria are tragic and will impact some Caribbean islands for years to come. However, the entirety of the Caribbean spans about 1 million square miles. A sizable percentage of the Caribbean was not impacted, or minimally impacted, by recent hurricanes. These beach destinations are open and waiting for vacationers.

The Dominican Republic is a good example of an island that is tourist-ready, but its status is largely unknown for most Americans. First, there is confusion because Dominica, a similarly sounding island, sustained major damage. Secondly, while neither hurricane made landfall, strong winds brushed the northern part of Dominican Republic. Punta Cana, one of the Caribbean’s most popular beach destinations, was not affected by hurricanes, so there is no reason to hesitate booking your winter vacation there. Even though the Dominican Republic is not undergoing post-hurricane rebuilding, the island will be severely impacted economically if vacationers decide not to go there.
Known best for its endless stretches of white sandy beaches, world-class golf and vast array of all-inclusive resorts, Punta Cana is often referred to as the Coconut Coast. In addition to postcard-worthy beaches, Punta Cana is also home to great restaurants, casinos, world-class spas, and twenty-eight amazing golf courses.
