Relaxing and recovering from work, on vacation it's all allowed to be a little less busy. Still, there are many who love adventure and adrenaline. And the combination of these can be experienced at Scape Park in Cap Cana. Located a half-hour drive from the all-inclusive hotels in Punta Cana. So be sure to plan a visit if you are in the area!


Prepare yourself for a day full of fun activities and adrenaline rushes!

How to get to Scape Park

There are two ways to get to Scape Park. First, you have the option of going there by yourself with your own (rented) car. For this you have to go through the secure residence area of Cap Cana and have an entrance ticket for Scape Park that the security agent will ask you for. Afterwards you drive for about another 15minutes to the entrance of Scape Park itself. There you will have plenty of parking space for your car.


A second option is to book your visit to Scape Park directly through the website where they will pick you up at your hotel in Punta Cana. The price of transportation and the entrance ticket to the park are included in the price.


General information: The park is open from Saturday to Wednesday between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm. They are closed on Thursdays and Fridays. We recommend that you plan your arrival before 9.00 am to avoid the queues at the ticket booths and have enough time to experience all the activities, lunch and relaxation.

Experience adventure and adrenaline

You have a full day to walk around the park and do all the activities. However, to get the most out of your day, we recommend starting your trip at the blue cave. To do this, you will hike about 10 minutes through the nature of the park. At the cave itself you will receive a safety helmet and afterwards you can jump into the cave and relax.


After a few dives, you can continue to the central part of the park to visit the Iguabonita Cave or go ziplining, for example. The zipline circuit is the attraction that gives you the most adrenaline and beautiful views of Cap Cana and the coastline. You can do the zipline entirely on your own or in group of friends, along with the guides who accompany you at each zipline and bring you safely to the other side.

Water attractions and culture

Besides an adventurous swim in the cave and several-meter-long ziplines, you can also indulge in the many water attractions offered by Scape Park. Some examples include the Saltos Azules, where you hold yourself on a rope and then fall into the water. You have the waterfall where you can unwind as a family and just across the street you have the Hammock Zipline where you sit in a macrame chair, attached to the zipline and end up in the water. So much fun!


In between attractions, you can also soak up culture and visit Iguana land. During the walk around the park you will discover the replicas of how Taino Indians, the Spanish conquistadors, the African slaves and the Dominican peasants lived back in time. It teaches you a lot about the island.

It's child and family friendly

The park provides fun for everyone. So you can go there with the whole family and children. For young and old, you have attractions. Recently they built a playground where parents can relax and picnic, and children can play around the climbing and play frames.


You also have several drink, snack and food outlets around the park. The offerings vary between hot dogs, pizza, hamburgers or small snacks such as chips, candy, croissants and donuts. Want to bring your own food? Then provide food that can withstand the heat in your backpack. You are still open in nature and Caribbean temperatures can reach above 30 degrees.


During your trip, also provide water shoes, a towel, sunscreen and a t-shirt to protect your shoulders on top of your swimwear. Finally, we also recommend a dry outfit to make the ride back to the hotel easier. Because wet clothes and cold air conditioning do not go well together and may cause you to catch a cold.
