SANDOS CARACOL ECO RESORTS’ SANDOS AQUA PARK
Open to resort guests, guests of sister Sandos properties in the area, and visitors who purchase day passes, this all-ages eco-friendly park in Punta Cana is set in a real live jungle. Built naturally into the landscape in a way that doesn’t impact the environment, it provides water park fun for guests of all ages.
With 29 slides for a whole range of ages, this is one of the largest water parks in the area. Fun fact: 17 of the slides are appropriate for those under 3’7” so you don’t have to worry about your little ones missing out on the fun.
HARD ROCK HOTEL RIVIERA MAYA'S ROCKAWAY BAY
Head to the Riviera Maya for this showstopper available exclusively for that resort’s guests.
Rockaway Bay features 23 slides with eight of them designed for kids at least 3’5”, nine for kids and teens, and six heart-pounding, high-speed slides for teens and adults. Four of the high-speed ones are right next to each other, so you can race your friends and family.
You’ll also enjoy a splash pool for the wee ones and a poolside snack bar.

ROYALTON SPLASH PUNTA CANA’S SPLASH PARK
Head to the Royalton and enjoy this unique park featuring a kids’ section with its own water slides, a wave pool, seven “monster” slides and more.
For the brave at heart, they won’t want to miss the Black Hole, a 372-foot slide or the Space Bowl, a giant U-shaped, skateboard ramp-looking slide that ricochets your inner tube from arc to arc until it loses momentum.
RIU’S SPLASH WATER WORLD
Whether you want to get away to Mexico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, or Costa Rica, you can take advantage of this resort brand’s water park! Offerings vary by resort, but no matter which you pick, there’s an average of eight slides. If you’re looking at the biggest park, you’ll want to pick Punta Cana.
All Riu water parks are exclusively for the enjoyment of RIU guests over 48” tall. And uniquely, the ones at Riu Republica and Riu Montego Bay are actually geared for adults only.
