Golden Beaches on the Amber Coast...
On the Dominican Republic's northern Amber Coast, Puerto Plata is surrounded by mountain ranges, a two-mile crescent of powdery amber sands, and the sparkling waters of the Atlantic. Puerto Plata is aptly named for the silvery hues of its natural harbor. Here, the infectious rhythms of Caribbean music can be heard all around! Playa Dorada, a gated resort area of all-inclusive hotels situated by an 18-hole golf course boasts more than two miles of gorgeous shoreline. Cabarete is a cool, hip coastal village located just 25 minutes from Puerto Plata. The area is known as the world's kite boarding and windsurfing capital.
Nearby lies the second largest city in the Dominican Republic Santiago. Rich with culture and beauty, this city has something for everyone. Bargain hunt through the hand made crafts on the street of Calle del Sol, discover the contemporary art, and take in the panaoramic views atop The Monument to the Heroes of the Restoration which overlooks the city. Plus, travelers can save by flying directly to the Cibao International Airport in Santiago.
