Puerto Plata Vacations: Peace & Thrills

Puerto Plata delivers the best of a traditional Dominican Republic port town while boasting the amenities of its all-inclusive beachside resorts. Christopher Columbus set foot on this land, and in good time, Puerto Plata became an important trading port with its own fort. Visit Fortaleza San Felipe, ride the aerial tramway, and explore the Amber Museum. Liberty Travel can match you with an all-inclusive Puerto Plata vacation that’s just your style. Whether you want to go windsurfing or follow the footsteps of Columbus, let Liberty Travel take you there.
