Puerto Plata Highlights and Golden Beach Escape
You will be met directly at the cruise center with a refreshing bottle of water then whisked away in air-conditioned comfort to paradise.
At the feet of the beautiful Isabel de Torres Mountain and the majestic Atlantic Ocean, Puerto Plata city is located on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, full of considerable contrasts of mountains, beaches and exuberant landscapes, but also with great historical and entertainment values. As you drive through the bustling city of Puerto Plata, your excursion host will provide you with interesting information regarding the history and culture of Puerto Plata and the Dominican Republic. There will be brief photo stops along the way to Playa Dorada (Golden Beach). Make a stop at Fort San Felipe for photos, then continue to Malecon Beach where you can see the statue of Neptune positioned on a small island. Make your way next to Parque Independencia for a brief history of the Victorian era architecture and for photos.
Only a short ride from Amber Cove is the region's most popular beach. Born as the first tourist destination in the country, Playa Dorada is located on the north coast of the country, surrounded by many interesting and diverse attractions. The coastline is one of the most beautiful in the entire Atlantic Coast, meeting all environmental requirements necessary to merit the recognition of quality, both locally and internationally.
Once at the beach you will be greeted with a complimentary seasonal, specialty beverage and warm hospitality. Secluded and romantic, Playa Dorada promises an unforgettable day of swimming or relaxing on the golden sandy beaches along the "Blue Riviera." Beach loungers will be reserved for your convenience while beach beds are on a first come, first serve basis. Additional beverages or a bite to eat are available at the beach bar and restaurant (at an additional charge).
After this relaxing time away at the beach you will return to the cruise center in comfort.

Absolutely fabulous. Best tour operator to date, very organized and experienced. Had a gorgeous beach to ourselves, everything prepaid. Had a covered bed on the gorgeous white sand, even cold water by the bedside. Glass of punch also included. Great surf to play in. The best tour of our cruise by far. Highly recommended.

WOW!!!! Victor was our guide and he was fantastic!! Very in tuned to our needs as my husband has mobility problems and Victor could not have made us feel more comfortable. Really liked the highlights tour but absolutely LOVED THE BEACH!! Victor made us feel like royalty. Please tell him we thank him and hope we see him on our next trip.
We loved this excursion. Daniel was fantastic on the tour portion--very personable and outgoing as he immersed us in learning the Dominican customs and lifestyle The tour van was new, comfortable, timely, and ideal. The beach was clean and beautiful and the time there was adequate. Highly recommended.
