Puerto Plata, officially known as San Felipe de Puerto Plata, is the third-largest city in the Dominican Republic and home of two cruise ports, Amber Cove and Taino Bay, showcasing the city as one of the principal destinations in the Caribbean.
In the 16th century, the Spaniards built a key piece of Puerto Plata’s history, the Fortaleza de San Felipe, intent on defending the north coast of the Dominican Republic. Considered one of the most important Caribbean colonial military structures, it’s now a museum. Basking in the sunset at the foot of the fort, in La Puntilla park, is a must-do Puerto Plateño activity.
Puerto Plata also hosts the first Caribbean cable car, where visitors ride up 2600 feet to marvel at panoramic views of the city. This tour visits 7 popular attractions.
