What people are saying about Puerto Plata

I had an AMAZING time, my guide was Dan Marino and at the falls it was ChiChi and Abucco. They were awesome It's quite a walk to the falls but TOTALLY WORTH IT!!! I would say pack changing clothes, waterproof phone case, water shoes, cash, face mask and scarf for the buggy, towel, bug spray. The lunch was DELICIOUS, and at the family owned market they made me, on the spot, a beautiful elephant piece and etched my name.

Our tour guide Richard picked us up at the hotel on time. On the drive to the waterfalls we had a great chat with Richard and he gave us cool inputs and tips. The waterfalls were also cool. It was really fun to jump or slide, a real adrenaline rush. Lunch with Richard afterwards was super delicious !! We can only recommend this tour and would like to thank Richard

It was really very good. It only bothered me that the description says something of 7.5 hours, but unfortunately only 5.5 hours can be used. Lyre far too short if you want to see all the shows and attractions. The only bad thing was that I had to pay extra for the transfer from and to the hotel. With over 100 EU for these attractions a cheek! Otherwise great.

Great experience. With a lot of mud through the jungle to a great beach. 11/10 ... even when I lost a bike, the guide quickly came up with his replacement buggy for me. I thought it was great and would recommend it to everyone.

From the moment we were picked up, to the moment we were dropped off, we had a phenomenal time
