What You Can Expect

Puerto Plata City Tour with Cable Car Ride

Sosua Beach, Puerto Plata

Following pickup at your Puerto Plata hotel in the morning, climb aboard your comfortable, air-conditioned tour bus. Set off to tour the city of Puerto Plata with your tour group and friendly local guide. 

Your first stop is the Brugal Rum Center, a popular place to buy duty-free rum that you can take home and share with friends and family. Varieties that are not for sale outside of the Dominican Republic make wonderful souvenirs. 

Continue to the Dominican Amber Museum to peruse the immense collection of amber pieces. Most of this valuable amber material comes from an extinct tropical tree and is usually clear. 

Board the bus and head over to San Felipe Fort, one of Puerto Plata's oldest buildings. Stroll through the fort's small museum to see displays including antique cannon balls, guns and other artifacts of war. Stand at the edge of the fort to take in the stunning views out over the Atlantic Ocean. 

Board the cable car for the trip up Isabel del Torres Mountain. At the top, enjoy panoramic views of the bay and the city spread out below you. Be sure you have your camera on hand for fantastic photo opportunities.

After riding the cable car back down the mountain, board your coach for the return to your Puerto Plata hotel in the late afternoon.

I am scared to death of heights but figured that this tour was a must when in Puerto Plata. It was scary as hell but well worth it! I booked a few tours through Viator and was extremely satisfied with the service provided and value for the money!

The tour guide was very nice and did not attempt to hustle for a big tip at the end.He deserved it and he received it.This city tour is quick but highlights everything you expect.The cable car ride to see the replica of was the scariest yet most amazing thing I have every experienced.The rum factory stop was cool because we got some good deals in the store after the brief tour and free samples.The amber factory was intresting and included a cigar rolling experience for some.Overall,good tour but wish we could have explored the Mount Isabella site more.

The tour was good. Our tour guide is very nice, friendly and would definitely like to use them again when we go back to Dominican Republic.

The tour was nice but a bit rushed. We could have had some more time at each stop, especially at the top of the hill - so much to see in just a few minutes! Also, the trip was advertised as including a visit to the Brugal rum factory but that did not happen. At least we did stop by a supermarket to get our booze.
