Puerto Plata


This northern province of the Dominican Republic may have been a latecomer to the country’s tourism scene, but it has really become a fan favorite since taking off in the 1990’s. And while the area’s white and golden beaches are by 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 is growing in popularity. Today, Puerto Plata is an attractive mixture of Creole Victorian houses and vibrant Caribbean local lifestyle that goes hand in hand with the budding tourism industry. However, the town’s history goes way back to the beginnings of the New World. In fact, in 1493 Christopher Columbus set anchor here. But with more development plans underway, including Puerto Plata becoming an important port of call for cruise ships, the growth of this Dominican jewel will continue to draw more and more travelers to this beautiful colonial town on the sea.

You have chosen to visit the Dominican Republic to explore its natural setting and experience adventures.
