Amber Cove Shore Excursions to the Dominican Republic
Amber Cove is located on the Dominican Republic's north coast (Caribbean Sea), just outside of Puerto Plata. Puerto Plata is a historical town discovered by Christopher Columbus. Amber Cove encompasses 30 acres of waterfront property and the port was named "Amber Cove" after the rich amber mineral reserves found in the region.
Experience an eco-adventure like no other. Damajagua, or "27 Charcos" (27 Pools), is a hidden treasure nestled in the rolling hills of the Northern Corridor mountain range. Completely immerse yourself within this tropical rainforest that offers captivating views and some epic waterslides. Or, ditch the waterslides and jump down to get back to basecamp. Just be careful - waterfall jumps can be up to 25 feet high!
There are several beaches worth checking out near the cruise terminal, from Playa Dorada to Grande. Get wet and wild with all the watersport activities Amber Cove has to offer. You can rent many different types of equipment, such as stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, hydro-bikes, pedal boats, and solar catamarans. Snorkeling and scuba diving equipment rentals are also available. Prefer to stay dry? Book a deep-sea fishing charter boat instead.
Explore Puerto Plata
Hike your way up or hop on the only cable car to the summit of Mount Isabel de Torres, located in the city of Puerto Plata, and just a quick 20-minute car ride from Amber Cove. The summit is 2,555 feet above sea level and offers prime Puerto Plata sightseeing. Once at the peak, hike the beautiful botanical gardens filled with local flora and caves, or get some photos of the Christ the Redeemer Statue (a smaller version of the one in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil). Ocean World Adventure Park is located in Puerto Plata too. It's a must-see attraction if you're in the Dominican Republic. Here you can have close encounters with dolphins, sea lions, and sharks that kids will surely enjoy. Adults can keep the fun going at night. With the Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop, Ocean World also offers an entertaining nightlife option for grown-ups. There are a ton of things to do inland as well, from cigar factory tours to local marketplace shopping. Again, there is simply too much to list. But that is what makes Amber Cove a great vacation destination. Shore Excursions offers nothing but the best excursions and tours in the Caribbean and beyond!
