Discos and casinos await your nighttime exploration in nearby Puerto Plata. And a 'must-see' is the new marine eco-park, Ocean World, where guests can interact with a variety of marine creatures -- and, of course, swim and play with the dolphins.
Golf: Hit the clubs to dance the night away to the beat of salsa and the meringue; or try your luck at one of the casinos. Our favorite nightlife, however, is to sit on the balcony and enjoy the millions of stars visible above the rollers on the ocean.
For golf enthusiasts, you'll be happy to know that some of the Caribbean's best courses are in the Dominican Republic. A fifteen-minute drive will put you on the beautiful courses at Playa Dorado; and an hour-long drive through the beautiful Dominican countryside will put you on the Robert Trent Jones course at Playa Grande. There will be no fighting for tee times, as our staff can make all the arrangements for you.
Cofresi offers beautiful coral, rocks and tropical fish for great snorkeling. There are many other areas a short drive or short boat trip away. North shore diving trips to reefs and wrecks can also be arranged by our staff.
Although the Dominican Republic is not yet known as a shopper's paradise, you'll find lots to take home.
Locally produced rums and famous cigars are favorites, as are the bright Caribbean paintings. The Dominican Republic is the only place in the world wherethe gemstone larimar; is found; and it's one of the few places in the world that mines amber. These jewels are readily available, as are others from jewelers in Puerto Plata.
The casual Dominican lifestyle fits perfectly with a relaxed vacation. But for those who insist on bringing work with them, internet access is available at Playamor; and a complete business center is available a short walk away.
Nellie, our cook and housekeeper, is a native of Puerto Plata. She is a superb cook, and will also clean daily and do your laundry. For larger groups, an assistant housekeeper will be provided at no extra charge. Our villa caretaker, Kendy, is tri-lingual and lives in separate quarters onsite to help you with all phases of your stay.
