Read about how we rank Things to Do.

Just like its name implies, there's something for everyone at Ocean World Adventure Park, Marina and Casino. You can swim with stingrays, sea lions, dolphins and sharks, or enjoy an interactive "encounter" with Ocean World's Bengal tigers. You can also gamble with your money (instead of your life) by visiting the complex's marine-themed casino. There's Vegas-style shows (the exotic Bravissimo Show is popular with recent visitors) and three on-site restaurant/bars.

The Ocean World Adventure Park, Marina and Casino is located along the banks of Cofresi Beach. General admission is somewhat pricey, and participating in one of the interactive swims or encounters will cost extra. Visit the complex's official website for more information on prices or hours of operation.

Exploring the lower falls isn't horribly strenuous, but you should think twice before bringing your kids to this west Puerto Plata park. Stupid Dingo / Flickr

Avoid the dome under Christ's statue if you're not in the mood to shop -- the vendors there are ardent sellers of their jewelry and crafts. Magnera / Flickr

In addition to swimming with stingrays, sea lions, dolphins and sharks, you can also "encounter" Ocean World's Bengal tigers and gamble at the marine-themed casino. colros / Flickr
