Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic your home away from home

Located mid-way along the north coast of the Dominican Republic, Puerto Plata is magnificently scenic, with thick tropical forests opening out to reveal turquoise seas and idyllic white sand beaches. 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. Although this is a remote part of the island, fluency in Spanish is not essential, despite the rich culture still dominating the village.

Things to do on holiday to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

Puerto Plata is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Dominican Republic, partially due to its fantastic beaches. Christopher Columbus once announced Puerto Plata to be the ‘fairest land under heaven’ due to its combination of coastal mountains, perfect beaches and lush forests, and little has changed since then. Lazy days in the beach are a constant attraction to a Puerto Plata apartment, with the soft sand beaches blessed with many hours of sunshine a day throughout the year. The warm Caribbean waters are easily warm enough for a dip at any time of year too, even if you like your swimming waters warm!

There is plenty to do away from Puerto Plata’s beaches too. Among the most popular attractions in Puerto Plata are the Amber Museum, which displays a fascinating range of specimens caught in fossilized resin, the Columbus Aquaparque and the Brugal Rum Factory.

The beautiful Iglesia de San Felipe Church is certainly worth a visit from any self catering Puerto Plata apartment, and the many little craft shops and restaurants that litter the town make a days exploration a genuine delight.

Activity is never far away from life in a Puerto Plata apartment either. The soaring peak of Mont Isabel de Torres offers visitors wonderful views from the summit, and if you don’t feel like climbing it on foot, there is a seven minute cable car which will do the hard work for you! The botanical gardens and summit restaurant are certainly worth making the climb for, not to mention the unsurpassed views across the sea and the island.

I'm writing this review from the hammock on the front terrace. 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!
