Puna Cana and Bavaro Dominican Republic - the towns marks out the stretch of over 30 kilometers of silver beaches that skirt the Atlantic Ocean.
These two townships - the key east coast resorts of the Dominican Republic - have grown to 'meet' each other, brought together by the development of a virtual 'chain' of first class all inclusive hotel and leisure developments that mark out the coastline, and mean that this part of the country now hosts some of the Caribbean's finest vacation real estate!
Bávaro is an area running from Cabeza de Toro (Head of the Bull) through to Macao Beach. Bavaro itself has become a center of services due to the general development of resorts in the area. It now offers a range of shopping malls, fast-food stores, drug stores, fine restaurants, banks, clinics, workshops, supermarkets, and schools.
The main town in the district is Veron which has grown even larger, in population terms, than Higuey the capital of the province in territory, with a spreading settlement of impoverished homes of poorer Dominicans seeking work, or simply to try and scrape a living, one way or another, from the many visitors to the area.
Veron, was named after the French proprietor of a timber business back in the early 1930s, and has developed into the main 'home' for the many local hotel workers, and those employed in related touristic activities.
If you are hiring a vehicle it may help to know that Veron also has one of only three three gas stations in the Punta Cana/Bavaro area. It is then almost another 50 kilometers (30 miles) to the next station in the west of the provincial capital, Higuey, at the Fruisa crossroads. The third filling-point is a recently (in 2010) opened Texaco gas station situated about 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) south of Macao beach.
