The Punta Cana area consists almost exclusively of large all-inclusive resorts that cater mostly to couples or families. The introduction of timeshare ownership at these resorts has also increased the number of family visitors returning to the island on a more frequent basis. The exception is spring school break, when groups of university students fly down from Canada and the US.
