Nestled between a towering mountain and the pristine Caribbean Sea, Puerto Plata combines old colonial charm and the exuberant nature of a tropical Caribbean destination.
While the area’s white and golden beaches are clearly the main attraction, the local Damajuagua cascades, the Ocean World water park and the Christ the Redeemer statue atop Isabella de Torres mountain, which you can reach by cable car, are just part of the reason that this wonderful beach destination.
Puerto Plata’s old town hosts the largest collection of Victorian architecture in the Caribbean. The town’s history goes way back to the beginnings of the New World. In fact, in 1493 Christopher Columbus set anchor here. The Puerto Plata city tour will show you all this and many more secrets that this city has to offer.
There’s also plenty of activities outside the city, with an Outback Safari expedition that takes you on exciting all-terrain activities across forested mountains and horseback rides back down to civilization.
For a more laid-back experience, discover wild tropical birds and fish throughout the mangroves of Cayo Arena Island and don a snorkel mask to view the picturesque coral reefs that surround the area.
The best part of it is that you can come enjoy the Caribbean sun in Puerto Plata any time of year.
