The most interesting places in Puerta Plata
Puerto Plata hides countless natural areas that won't fail to impress you, like the waterfalls and pools of the Damajagua River, an authentic natural spectacle with cascading water, natural swimming pools, tunnels and water slides. We also recommend you visit the most authentic places in the area, like Isabela National Park, where artifacts from the first colonial settlement on the island have been found, and Altamira, the country's premier chocolate-processing zone, where you can find out about organic cacao production.
The city of Puerto Plata has interesting places to visit, like the Dominican Amber Museum, where you can see its collection of this prehistoric resin; Pico Isabel de Torres, a mountain peak you can reach in a cable car; and Fortaleza San Felipe, a fortress with lovely views of the bay. If you want to see more of the country, don't overlook Santiago de los Caballeros, the second-largest city in the Dominican Republic. We recommend visiting the Centro Cultural Eduardo León; the cigar and rum factories, which will show you how these traditional local products are produced; the Modelo market; and the monument to the Héroes de la Restauración.
