If you go on some excursions or visits in the surrounding area you’ll see cities such as Santiago, the Río Damajagu waterfalls, La Isabela National Park , one of the most important museums in the world: The Amber Museum in Puerto Plata, and the Rum factory famous for its Ron Brugal founded in 1888.
