Full description
Start your 7-hour tour in the old city area, where you’ll see buildings dating back to the 1600s. Take a cable car ride to the top of Mount Isabel, and enjoy panoramic views of the ocean and surrounding area. Admire the botanical gardens, and the statue of Christ that’s similar to the one in Rio de Janeiro. Visit the Fuerte San Felipe, located on a small peninsula on the Bahia de Puerto Plata. The fortress is the last vestige of the area’s colonial past. Stop at the small historical museum, and see the tiny cell in which Juan Pablo Duarte, the hero of the independence movement, was briefly confined. This tour will end after you’ve enjoyed a delicious typical Dominican meal.

j'ai mis une note très bien, malgré que l'excursion vendue soit incomplète. En effet le téléphérique ne fonctionne pas en ce moment, ce qui rend l’excursion beaucoup moins intéressante.
