What to Eat in Puerto Plata

Even if you're enjoying a pre-paid food plan, you shouldn't pass up the chance to sample some D.R. cuisine. La bandara -- the national dish of red beans, stewed meats, rice and fried green plantains -- is a must-try, and samaná's pescado con coco (fish with coconut sauce) will be appreciated by any seafood lover. And caffeine addicts will have no problem finding their fix in this city. The Dominican Republic as a whole is known for its coffee bean production, and you can expect your Puerto Plata cup o' joe to taste fresh and flavorful.
