Caribbean beaches, coral sands, palm trees, turquoise blue, sun, piña colada and nautical sports … this could be the sketch of the Dominican Republic. However, the tourist should not forget that they are in one of the most interesting islands of the New World, the first place were Europeans arrived in their tour of the Americas and an area full of history and exotic places.
Today we discovered one of the 31 provinces in which the country is divided. Puerto Plata City Tour, excursion that we can hire from companies with a lot of experience such as Halcón Viajes, will reveal all the secrets of one of the most interesting places in the Caribbean.
It’s superfluous to say that we are in one of the corners of the world with the most spectacular beaches, but we will have time to learn about that fascinating ‘wild’ nature of Puerto Plata, because today we’re going to a city tour you cannot miss.
It’s time to know, for example, San Felipe Fortress, the germ of the original city back in the sixteenth century that now houses a historical museum of military artifacts and defensive devices.
We will take a walk through the streets of downtown, with its colonial and Victorian air, tacking time to make a stop along the way to buy some goodies in one of the most original and attractive: The Amber Museum.
With our fossil resin pieces in our backpacks, it’s time to see one of the most breathtaking panoramas of the city. We’ll take the cable car to go to the top of Mount Isabel de Torres, where we can take the best shots of the city.
Of course, before returning to our Be Live Hotels, we will stop at a rum factory to taste the best Dominican drink. This is the great Puerto Plata City Tour.
