Although out of fashion in the past decades, major revitalization efforts have made a trip to Puerto Plata a growingly popular option for the adventurous travelers. The port town, nestled between a mountain and the ocean, is known for its picturesque beaches, with fine golden sands and azure waters. Upscale resort chains offer relaxation and pampering, while the beaches provide countless water sport opportunities for your Puerto Plata vacation. Although primarily a beach destination, the city is not without its cultural sights, as the restored waterfront boasts a historic fort and lighthouse.
