What people are saying about Puerto Plata

It was a tour where you got a quick little impression of the city and country. From the cheese factory to the biscuit "factory" and from a family home to the cigar factory, you could see something, but always buy something! You could also call it a cultural sales trip. Everyone needs to know if this is for them!

The Company was very easy to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed our horseback riding through the mountains. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We learned about the different vegetations and about Dominican lifestyles. Definitely recommend!

Very experienced and knowledgeable guide. I had a great time. Will definitely do it again. Owner very nice and helpful.
