The attractions in Puerto Plata are numerous, from the stunning beaches to the awe-inspiring mountain backdrop, the charming restaurants to the sense of isolation, and all this with flights to Puerto Plata Airport landing you within minutes of your rental apartment.

My view is the beautiful beach in front of me. Sadly, today is our last day. My family and I spent a considerable amount of time researching our long-awaited Tropical Christmas. We could not be more pleased. This is by far the BEST vacation we have ever experienced. The Villa is spacious and very nicely equipped. The pool, landscaping, and outdoor terraces create an amazing oasis. The staff (Julie, Domingo, & Rene) are super-friendly and Stephen & Stephanie provided us with superior service. Stephanie even brought over her dogs for my kids to play with! The beach is incredible - just steps away with lots of shade trees, half a dozen bars/restaurants, and beautiful torquoise waters. We WILL be back!
