No matter what kind of vacation adventure you're looking for, you'll find it in Puerto Plata. This is an area of breathtaking natural beauty that extends from the soft white sand of Cabarete Beach all the way to the inland mountains and waterfalls of the Dominican Republic's many national parks. Come here to experience emerald green golf courses, busy colorful markets, museums, waterparks, and the intoxicating rhythm and energy of Puerto Plata nightlife.
Get the most out of your stay in Puerto Plata with a vacation rental of your own. A downtown apartment or an elegant villa by the ocean can be less expensive than a hotel, and can offer the space and luxury amenities you need to relax, store your things, and host your family and friends in style. Wake up in your vacation rental or Puerto Plata beach condo and enjoy a cup of coffee on your balcony as the sun rises over the blue waters of the Caribbean. Then spend the morning on the beach where you can go swimming, snorkeling, sailing, or just relax on the sand. Later, stroll the downtown area or visit Ocean World. Puerto Plata will keep you busy with fun things to do all day and into the evening. After the sun sets, enjoy the world class dining and live music of the Puerto Plata nightlife.
