The area around Puerto Plata was originally inhabited by Taino Indians and later discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492. The remains of America's first European settlement, La Isabela, can be found here along with a host of historical buildings. Amble along Puerto Plata's streets to see Victorian houses dating back to the 19th century, take in the fragrant gardens and lovely gazebo of Independence Park, or head to the town center to study the splendid white towers of the Church of San Felipe. You can also visit San Felipe Fortress, an imposing stone structure built in 1541 to defend the city from pirate attacks.
Puerto Plata's moderate weather, along with its prime location between the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the mountains of Northern Cordillera, allow for leisurely recreations and thrilling eco-activities. Play on championship golf courses, sunbathe along sunny beaches, horseback ride among beautiful scenery, hike or zipline through mountains or enjoy numerous water sports. Large waves and reef breaks make Puerto Plata an ideal destination for surfers, while divers can enjoy shallow reefs, shipwrecks and freshwater cave diving. Deep-sea fishing for marlin, sailfish and dorado is also popular.
Other Puerto Plata attractions include the Brugal Rum Factory, Amber Museum and Yasika Adventures Park. Ocean World Adventure Park houses a casino, yacht marina, rainforest, beach, bird aviary, tiger grotto and sea animals such as dolphins, sea lions, stingrays and sharks. Take a cable car to the top of Mount Isabel de Torres, 2,700 feet above sea level, for breathtaking views of the ocean and surrounding areas. You'll also find botanical gardens, a craft market and a replica statue of Christ the Redeemer at the top.
