Personally I think Cancun is better for a gang your age, althugh I'm sure you'd had fun in PC also.

Perhaps you would prefer Playa del Carmen or Cancun, more in line of what you are looking for, lots of clubs to party in there. Punta Cana doesn't have many clubs ourside the resorts, a few I am told, but not many (each resort has it's own disco tho, but you are limited to your own resorts disco).

I find Punta Cana more laid back than Cancun or Playa del Carmen.

Don't rule out the Dominican Republic - just come to Cabarete (North Coast). It's the perfect party town with good clubs lined up along the beach so you can party in your bare feet. The airport you would fly to is Puerto Plata but you need to make sure that any hotel you book is actually IN Cabarete itself, or very close by.

Yup, stay in Cabarete. Get a hotel or condo in Cabarete itself. Don't worry about AI resorts because you will want to be down at the beach bars every night anyway!

You can do some partying in DR if you come with a group of friends. You need to make your own party as you really are at your resort and not able to go places off the resort usually. Most are out in the middle of no where and the surroundings are not that appealing to go out and about. Lots of people your age have a wonderful time at the resorts and it is a great safe place to have a good time. If you want wild parties, clubs, concerts than Cancun is the place to go. Just depends what you are looking for.
