When you hear the name Puerto Plata, it is normal to imagine a dream place. You find it in the north of the Dominican Republic, 200 km from Santo Domingo. This province is the cradle of tourism in the Caribbean country. Today it is still the favorite destination of visitors for its more than 55 kilometers of coastline divided into 26 beaches.

The “Bride of the Atlantic” has a cable car that takes you to the Botanical Garden at the top of the Loma Isabel de Torres. It also has the Fortress of San Felipe, which dates back to the XVI century and is full of historical and cultural riches.

If you enjoy water sports, Cabarete is the right place for you, where you can practice kitesurfing, windsurfing and surfing. But if you prefer less extreme sports, Puerto Plata offers an 18-hole golf course. 

Another attraction you can’t miss is Ocean World Adventure Park. This attraction center has it all, pools, casino, restaurants, clubs and even dolphins you can swim with.
