Best Things To Do in Puerto Plata

In addition to the beach (which let's face it, should be your number-one reason for visiting), this once prominent port city is also home to several historic and cultural sites, such as the traveler-recommended Fort San Felipe or Mount Isabel de Torres. If you have young kids, consider spending a day at Ocean World Adventure Park, Marina and Casino.
