Puerto Plata, DR: The great diversity of attractions in the Puerto Plata province makes it often said that “it has it all.” And it is that these make “the girlfriend of the Atlantic” a complete alternative for vacations or tourism.
A typical tour should include the attractions of the historical center, whose epicenter is the emblematic Victorian-style roundabout of Plaza Independencia, or central park, around which numerous representative architectural buildings exist.
A few steps away, you can have memories of the visit by taking pictures in the Callejón de Doña Blanca. This space recalls the person who established the first hotel in the area, Blanca Franceschini de Rainieri.
Likewise, the Calle de las Sombras, full of Trinidadians, spaces to take pictures and enjoy coffee or gift items.
A must-see must be La Puntilla and the San Felipe Fortress on the boardwalk, near which is the King of Puerto Plata.
The municipality’s attractions continue. It also has the cable car to access the top of the Isabel de Torres mountain, the Ocean World amusement park in Cofresí, and further west, in Imbert, the Saltos de la Damajagua.
The province has many river spas in Yasica, Altamira, Imbert, Guananico, Sosúa, and other municipalities, as well as beautiful beaches to enjoy bathing on a banana boat ride, on a catamaran, and other options.
In Puerto Plata, Luperón, Sosúa, Villa Isabela, from where you can access Cayo Arena, and Cabarete, a mecca for water sports such as surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing are places that can also be visited with caves and other attractions.
In La, Isabela Histórica is the remains of the first settlement of the Colony and the first church.
Cabarete, Tubagua, El Cupey, Altamira, and other points have different options for ecotourism and eco-friendly accommodation. Altamira is the headquarters of the leading artisan chocolate companies run by women entrepreneurs, Chócal and Chocolate.
