A marvelous mix of beaches, activities, history, and culture.

Puerto Plata

Capital of the north shore.

With nearly 100 kilometres (67 miles) of lovely beaches, the province of Puerto Plata (which means "Silver Port") is perhaps the DR's best mix of laid-back, active, and historic. The local resorts, outfitters, and attractions offer hundreds of activities in beach towns like Sosúa and Cabarete, and the city of Puerto Plata itself is second only to Santo Domingo in its architecture and history, from imposing San Felipe Fortress to its quaint Victorian downtown, especially in the area of Avenida Luperón and Parque Central. West of the capital, you can also visit La Isabela, site of one of the very first Spanish settlements in the hemisphere. It may be a cliché, but the phrase "something for everyone" definitely applies to Puerto Plata.
