Cortecito used to be the ceter of nightlife in Punta Cana, but the area is now a bit abandoned, object of a redevelopment by Russian investor. There are still nice places on the beach to et and drink.

If you want some action, Cortecito is a great place to start. Music, dance ?

This is a great little beach if you're an independant traveler looking for a bit more action--there are plenty of spots to lay down a towel and just people watch. It's also a great place to book a parasailing (or fishing or snorkeling) trip--vendors walk the beach offering tours though there also are store fronts offering the same in tiny El Cortecito town itself.

If you're interested in a bit more quiet (or a bit better beach), Playa El Cortecito is also good for cutting through to access the well-kempt beaches in front of nearby all-inclusive resorts. Just remember to stay off of their lounge chairs--most police their beachfronts like hawks.
