Puerto Plata holidays 2020
If you’re looking for the right destination for your sun, sea and sand cheap holidays in 2020, Puerto Plata has it all – radiant white beaches, majestic mountains and vibrant underwater coral. Puerto Plata is known as the ‘silver city’ along the amber coast of the Dominican Republic, and is one of the country’s most cherished locations. As the first village in the New World was established in this region all the way back in 1494, this is a resort of great history as well as beauty. Formerly a primarily maritime region, Puerto Plata is now renowned for its tourist-friendly landscape, facilities and attractions. It's not surprising to find mile upon mile of pristine beaches. Every beach you visit along this stretch of coastline has powdery silver sands, swaying palm trees and first-rate hotels, creating an ambience of exclusivity. If you don’t want to spend all of the time at your beach, though, don’t worry, as Puerto Plata has its fair of other attractions, too. These include the Cordillera Central mountains, the Puerto Plata’s answer to the Alps, clear blue lagoons and verdant coffee plantations.

Your guide to Puerto Plata holidays
Besides its famous beach resorts, Puerto Plata has plenty of excellent attractions and things to do. When you first arrive, try heading to the Damajaqua Cascades, a series of 27 scenic waterfalls of different heights. With a variety of waterfalls, a trip to the Damajaqua Cascades is a good option for those travelling with a group of friends or family as there’s something for everybody. If you want to relax and unwind, try Cabarete Beach for relaxing in the sun, or try your hand at skim boarding or wind surfing for a more high-octane experience. Just outside of the city you’ll find Mount Isabel de Torres, which offers breathtaking views all year round. You can reach the mountain by cable car to enjoy the views at your leisure, which are particulary beautiful during the sunset hours. Another must-visit attraction is the Fort San Felipe, one of the longest standing European forts that remains in the Americas.
There are some truly spectacular beaches along the coastline of Puerto Plata, one of the finest being the Playa Dorada. This beautiful beach is home to many of the most popular hotels in the area, and is considered to be the jewel of the north coast of the Dominican Republic. The beach itself is long and lined with swaying coconut trees, and has clean, light-grey sand. Playa Dorada is popular thanks to its relatively quiet spaces and nearby amenities, including several popular chain restaurants, cash machines and car hire agencies. Other beautiful beaches in the area include the Bahia Maimon, one of the country’s most unspoilt spots with a serene turquoise bay, nestled amidst rolling green hills.
