Puerto Plata
Location, Climate:
Puerto Plata is a premiere holiday destination in the Dominican Republic that is famous for its gorgeous beaches and outdoor activities. It is the capital of the province bearing the same name and located on the west of Puerto Rico. Puerto Plata has two distinct seasons: tropical which lasts from May to October and tropical cool which lasts from November to April. Most tourists prefer making discount hotel reservations during the tropical cool season when the weather is pleasantly warm with cool evenings. Book online to get the best deals in discount hotels.

Where to Stay:
Most windsurfers and kite surfers hang out at Kaoba Hotel because this 2-star hotel offers comfort without sacrificing their budget. Aside from being close to the beach, it even has its own swimming pool and terrace. The Victorian-inspired Piergiogio Palace Hotel is the perfect accommodation for honeymooners because of its tranquil location in the countryside. Enjoy a romantic dinner at the gazebo overlooking the picturesque beach.

Brief History:
Spanish explorer Christopher Columbus called the mountain near Puerto Plata “Monte de Plata” because the top had that silver-like appearance due to the fog making it look like a port. Christopher and his brother Bartolome designed the city in 1496, and Frey Nicolas de Ovando continued the design of the Columbus brothers in 1502. Puerto Plata became an important maritime port and commercial center in the island during the early part of its colonization by Spain.

Events, Landmarks, Activities:
Probably the biggest event in Puerto Plata is the Cultural Festival which is held every month of June. This week-long festival highlights the culture of the Dominican Republic featuring folk, tribal African and jazz music, merengue dance, and arts and crafts exhibition. The main reason why most tourists travel to Puerto Plata is because of its strip of beaches that include Long Beach, Confresi, Costambar and Playa Dorada. Go back in time by visiting San Felipe Fort or marvel over the Christ the Redeemer statue by riding the cable car.

Transportation:
Puerto Plata can be easily explored on foot, but there are compounds that only allow its guests to enter the area. Since most attractions are located outside the city center, it is best to ride the taxi or guagua (minibus). The guagua is cheaper, but they can get really hot and crowded at times. Public buses are more comfortable since they have air-conditioning and are more spacious.
