Wandering through Puerto Plata with Transat

Discover the Dominican love of life in Puerto Plata, with its exuberant mix of culture and nature. A great example is the area around Parque Central: it’s hard not to smile as you admire the brightly hued colonial homes.

The Malecon is also a must. Stroll or bike along the promenade for endless ocean views, and mingle with locals at the shops, bars and small eateries. And when you need a break, just wander down to the beach and breathe in the beauty.

For more nature, Damajagua Falls are a short drive away. Follow verdant trails to the waterfalls and, if you want an adrenaline rush, jump right in (with the right equipment and supervision, of course).

The crowning touch of any trip to Puerto Plata is the cable car to the top of Mount Isabel de Torres. On a clear day, you’ll be treated to vast panoramas of the city, fertile valleys and lush mountains. And on a not‑so-clear day? You feel like you’re floating in a cloud—which is also pretty cool.
