After its discovery in 1502 by Christopher Columbus, Puerto Plata started to become a popular tourist destination since the 1980s. Here’s a suggestion for an action packed in 3 days in this beautiful city.
Day 1:In the event that you do plan an excursion off the main tourist trail, pare down your belongings to items of minimal value and deposit anything else with the resorts.
Day 2:What’s a visit to Puerto Plata without a day spent at its world class beaches? Souses and Playa Dorado are known for their sun-kissed white sands and turquoise waters. They are also the heart of many fun-filled activitie like paragliding, windsurfing, snorkeling and scuba-diving. For other aspects of the city’s history visit the following:Brugal Rum Factory, the Taino Art Museum, the San Felipe Fort and the Isabel de Torres Botanical Gardens..
Day 3:Adults and children are equally thrilled when they interact with a variety of sea creatures at the famous Ocean World located only a few minutes away from the heart of Puerto Plata. From dolphins to sea-lions and seals to stingrays, Ocean World has it all!
