Thatched Roof Airport: Punta Cana International Airport

The Punta Cana International Airport is one of the most unique airports in the world. It is made of indigenous materials in traditional Dominican Republic style: palm wood and thatched roof. Cool airport.

What else is there to see in Punta Cana International Airport?

Well, I saw many moneyed Russians. It seems this is a new place to go for them. There were lots of girls clinging on to men who are twice their age. For real. Mostly American holidaymakers of course. And unbelievably overpriced shops.

The lobby, shops and restaurants.


When you arrive in Punta Cana they take a picture of you (just like those cheesy places where you go on a tourist tour and they take photos and you pay for them after) so this lady is pointing visitors where they can collect their pictures. I could not find mine.

We flew with Martin Air and while taxiing on the runway, I had a good view of the thatched roof airport. Really cool.

Very cool thatched roof.


Goodbye Punta Cana. Goodbye Dominican Republic. Not sure if I will ever come back again? We shall see. Never say never...
