Huracan Cafe is probably one of the best venues in Punta Cana, if not the entire Dominican Republic. It’s definitely on our top 5.
Not only because it is very beautiful, but also because we feel at home whenever we go (and we can assure you, you will feel that too!). Nati Roldan is a big reason for that, she welcomes everybody as an old friend and we simply love it!
Where is Huracan Cafe and how do I get there?
This beachfront venue is located in the Bavaro area, in a place called Los Corales. There is a small entrance, almost hidden, that leads to a beautiful barn-like space with a stunning view of the ocean. The closest resorts to it are Sunscape Dominican Beach and Now Larimar, only 7 to 10 minutes walk by the beach.
If you are considering to have your destination wedding in this venue we recommend these accommodation options for your stay in the Dominican Republic:
Now Larimar or Secrets Garden are located very close to the restaurant, which will make it really easy to transport yourself and your guests to the venue. Huracan Cafe offers transportation (at about 7.5 USD per guest), so this is not something you will have to worry about, but just to make the trip shorter after a long day.
Playa Turquesa Ocean Club is another (very different) option. These luxury condos can be rented for days, weeks or months and it could be a really different experience for you and your guests to visit Punta Cana without staying in an all-inclusive resort. They are just a 2-minute walk from Huracan Cafe and they are amazing!
We love working in different resorts and venues all around the DR, but there is just something that makes restaurants like these very special. It is an amazing alternative to the resort wedding since you will be the only one getting married there that day. You might find a few other brides on your wedding day in any resort in Punta Cana.
Natalia Roldan is the heart and soul of this venue, she works hard to make every vision of every bride into a reality, and oh boy, she really succeeds!
We have worked in a lot of weddings there and each and every one has its own special details which makes it a pleasure to work with since we always have inspiring decoration to photograph.
A big plus for us is that the food at this restaurant is just too good to be true. You might find yourself in a resort where the food is not what you expected, and you just want to make your guests as happy as you can, having traveled such a great distance to be there for you. Well, you won’t have to worry about that here!
From the salads to the risotto, to the lobster and the dessert, we could dine here every night and never get tired of it!
Why do we love to take Wedding Photos at Huracan?
This may not be something you think about when choosing a venue for your beach wedding so we wanted to tell you ourselves: it is very important to have good lighting and nice backgrounds for your wedding photos and here you will find both.
The bridal suite has perfect decoration, chairs, sofas, mirrors to get beautiful portraits of you and your girls. The light in the afternoon for the ceremony is beautiful all year round and the different locations around the restaurant make perfect backdrops to have different photos.
Just take a look at their photos and video and see what we mean!
