Description

In 1492, Columbus named this island "the fairest land under heaven," and Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic is still one of the most beautiful places in the world. Engulfed in lush trees and bordered on all sides by pristine beaches, Puerto Plata is quite heavenly. It's uniqueness comes from having a balance of old fashioned charm, evidenced in its Old City, and modern luxury, likewise evidenced in New City, which continues to grow as the city's industry grows. Puerto Plata allows you to vacation exactly how you'd like--with a sparkling nightlife, delicious food, and family-friendly museums and markets. But, be warned--Puerto Plata can get a bit bossy. This city has the audacity to tell many visitors exactly how to relax with the most style, value, and class. Many visitors take advantage of all inclusive packages offered on the island, where everything is planned for you and every whim is satisfied.
