6 Things You Must Do On Your Dominican Adventure to Puerto Plata

by S-Trip! Staff, 4 years ago

The Dominican Republic is known for its stunning beaches, and its blend of both fascinating culture, and history. This location is perfect for Grad Trip as it mixes perfectly together adventure and relaxation. Does it get better than that?

Here are 6 things you MUST do to make the most of your time in Puerto Plata:

1. Zipline Adventure

Take the plunge in Puerto Plata's unique facility on the Dominican mountain called Monkey Adventure! Learn the thorough safety procedures and instructions, then zip through this exhilarating, beautiful mountain & cave which takes about two and a half hours. With  a 100% vertical drop into a cave 30 ft underground included in this, you are guaranteed for quite the adrenaline rush.

2. Discovery Tours

Take a journey into civilization one day and explore the Victorians Houses, Puerto Plata's Central park, cigar rolling, and more! Get all of your souvenir needs from the most authentic places in the Dominican - rather than the airport - and learn a little bit more about the culture this beautiful place has to offer. Later, hop back on the truck to do a little horseback riding on the beach, and maybe work on your tan while you're at it!

3. Ride the waves in Cabarete

What better way to spend your time in the Dominican Republic than to just chill out and ride the waves in Cabarete. Cabarete is a charming little beach village 20 minutes from Puerto Plata, known to be the perfect tropical vacation spot. Sit back, relax with your friends, and soak up your #TripOfALifetime.

4. Catch some rays by cruising the coast on an epic catamaran

There is simply nothing to admire more while in the Dominican Republic than the beautiful natural scenery it has. Take the opportunity to spend a day on the stunning blue ocean on a #CatamaranCruise to explore a reef in the Caribbean! Surround yourself with friends, good tunes, and #GoodVibesOnly, and then later set off to one of Puerto Plata's coral reefs to do some snorkelling!

5. Jungle Safari

Take a couple hours out of your day to hit up the wildlife habitat and feed the monkeys! These little guys will even sit on your shoulders but don't worry, they won't bite. You'll get to see some exotic birds as well as Iguanas, and maybe get to see some things you never knew existed!

6. Encuento Surf Camp

Ever tried surfing out before? Well the Dominican is your perfect chance to do so. You'll have to visit Encuentro Beach - which is a super laid back beach town to get some one on one surfing lessons at the beginner level (don't worry), and set back home with a new favorite sport!
