What to see in Puerto Plata

San Felipe de Puerto Plata was founded by Spanish settlers in 1502 and today boasts an array of tourist attractions and wonderful beaches. They include Playa Dorada, with its crystal-clear waters, coral reefs and marine fauna; Playa Luperón, with its fine sands and tropical vegetation; or Playa Maimon, with its turquoise waters and golden sands.

Another reason why people choose hotels in Puerto Plata is to wander along its magnificent waterfront malecón in Playa Puntilla, lined by commemorative statues, up to the Fortaleza de San Felipe, a fort built in 1577 to fight off pirate attacks.

In the city, attractions include strolling along the streets to admire the colourful Victorian houses; visiting the Amber Museum, home to the mosquito-encased amber that Steven Spielberg used in Jurassic Park and a huge collection of amber items; exploring the Museum of Taino Art, which showcases objects from the original inhabitants of the island La Hispaniola; or taking a tour of the Ron Brugal distillery, one of the oldest in the Dominican Republic.

Another must-visit is the Isabel de Torres National Park, an 800-metre-high promontory accessible via cable car. The park, home to many species of animals and plants, commands outstanding views of the local area.

What’s more, the cuisine is a yet another reason why people choose hotels in Puerto Plata. The delicious fish and seafood dishes, arroz con auyama (pumpkin rice), sancocho de habichuelas (sweet and spicy bean stew), bandera dominicana (rice and kidney beans), plantains, Geo Geo cheese, chula mia (cheesecake) and local chocolates are just some of the most popular specialities here.
