With buzzing nightlife, sun-soaked beaches, and plenty of opportunities for adventure activities, Puerto Plata is fast becoming one of the Dominican Republic’s most popular resort towns. Whether you want to get your adrenaline pumping, top up your tan, or take in the views: here are some ideas for how to spend three days in Puerto Plata.

Explore the city
Spend your first day exploring the city, starting with riding the cable car to the mountaintop Christo Redentor statue. Then, get a taste of the Caribbean with a visit to the Brugal Rum Factory, stroll the scenic Isabel de Torres Botanical Gardens, shop for souvenirs at the local markets, or visit attractions like the Taino Art Museum and San Felipe Fort.

Get active
Explore the great outdoors on an ATV safari, zip along the coast on a dune buggy, or visit the magnificent Damajagua Waterfalls. Other popular activities include zip-lining through the jungle, horseback riding, or hiking through the rain forest.

Hit the beach
Puerto Plata is famous for its golden beaches, but swimming and sunbathing aren’t the only pastimes. Thrill-seekers can also try water sports like paragliding, white water rafting, and windsurfing; enjoy snorkeling in Sosua Bay; cruise to Paradise Island by speedboat; or discover scuba diving with a PADI-certified instructor.
