ABOUT CAP CANA: AN OVERVIEW
Cap Cana is a luxurious master planned community located within the Punta Cana region of the Dominican Republic, the second largest island of the Caribbean. Nestled along the country’s eastern shoreline, this slice of paradise is less than fifteen minutes from the Punta Cana International Airport (and with the completion of the new Coral Highway in August, 2012, Cap Cana is now also just under 2 hours from the capital city of Santo Domingo by automobile).
Many Dominicans consider Cap Cana to be a point of national pride and a true “jewel” within the Caribbean. First-time visitors are often impressed by Cap Cana’s infrastructure: the area boasts beautiful landscaping and miles of cleanly paved roads, a sure sign that this is not the “typical” Caribbean resort town. The development has modern grids for water, irrigation and sanitation, and is also equipped with a fiber optic telecommunications network. And like many coastal resort communities, Cap Cana also offers plenty of options for fine dining, upscale shopping and a relaxing day at the spa.
Although Cap Cana’s pure, white sand beaches, turquoise waters and luxury resorts attract upscale travelers from all over the world, it is perhaps best known for its most prominent facilities, the Cap Marina and the Punta Espada Golf Course.
The Cap Cana marina is the largest of its kind in the Caribbean. A collection of mega yachts and luxury sport fishing craft can be found in the marina at any given time, especially during the summer months when Cap Cana is host to a series of fishing tournaments.
The golfing facilities in Cap Cana are world famous for both the quality of play and the breathtaking oceanfront surroundings. The Punta Espada is a Jack Nicklaus Signature course that has played host to the PGA’s Champions Tour and has been ranked by Golfweek as the #1 golf course in Mexico and the Caribbean for four consecutive years.
ABOUT CAP CANA REAL ESTATE
Cap Cana does not just cater to international visitors: the development is also home to a considerable number of private properties, ranging from cozy waterfront condominiums and beachfront bungalows to spectacular estate residences owned by some of the Caribbean’s (and the world’s) wealthiest individuals.
In 2011, luxury purchasers proved that Cap Cana is still in demand, as they closed on more than $42 Million in luxury property there (including individual sales above $5.5 Million). Approximately 50% of these luxury real estate purchasers were from the United States, with the remainder coming from the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Russia and other Latin American countries.

Sweeping ocean vistas can be enjoyed from Jacuzzis located on the ground level and the 2nd floor, just outside the master suite.
