Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic Vacations
Hotels in Puerto Plata
Our Opinion of Puerto Plata
The sun-soaked north coast of the Dominican Republic combines golden beaches, casinos, golf, and infectious Dominican merengue music for an unforgettable vacation. Puerto Plata, where Columbus first landed, is the tourist centre of the North (or "Amber") Coast. Close by is the specially built resort town of Playa Dorada, and also the village of Sosua, set on a stunning half moon bay, with a more European atmosphere.
