Amber Cove

Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

The Basics

Amber Cove—arguably an attraction in its own right—is an ideal jumping-off point from which to explore the Dominican Republic’s many attractions. Zipline courses through the Monkey Jungle, horseback rides through the countryside, and thrilling waterfall slides at Damajagua Waterfalls are among the more popular options, but Puerto Plata city tours and trips to Mundo King Creole Castle don’t disappoint. Many tours also depart direct from the port for added convenience.

You WILL get soaked!
My wife and I had SO MUCH fun! The tour guide was so funny, you could tell he truly loves his job. The photography was so professional. The staff communicated with us so we'll and gave us good directions to find them when we got off our ship. If you don't mind getting muddy and wet this is easily the experience for you! Well done 10/10!!!

4 Wheel ATV Tour at Amber cove and Taino Bay in Puerto Plata
This was the icing on the cake for my trip! Even though it was raining, it actually made the tour better. it added the excitement of riding in the mud and kept us cooler. Our tour guide ( his name started with N) was awesome. Kept us laughing while educating us about the island and it’s cultural. We made some stops along the way to really take it all in.

Amber Cove & Taino Bay Shore Excursion: 2 person Buggy Tour
Had a blast with Colin and Kelvin as our guides. So much mud and water we were soaked from head to toe. Bring extra clothes or just rinse off in the ocean. Would definitely do this again. Lasted about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. They took about 160 pics of just us for 50.00 worth it.

Puerto Plata Shore Excursion: ATV adventure for Amber Cove & Taino Bay Passenger
While the drive down there is terrifying, and our driver didn’t talk at all, and his car was barely running (lol), Frank did a GREAT tour. The ATVs were in great shape, the guided part was exciting and the enthusiasm was spectacular. We had too much fun! Be warned though…. Bring clothes, shoes and a scarf that you are willing to throw in the trash afterwards, because you will get DRENCHED in mud and water. Haha. Took me 30 minutes to rinse it out of my shirt, shorts and shoes.

Amber Cove & Taino Bay Shore Excursion: 2 person Buggy Tour
FUN! We had such a great time. Ali was a great tour guide and was so friendly. We splashed through mud, swimming at the most beautiful beach and toured the forest and coast seeing people riding donkeys as transportation. Tips: bring cash on buggy as you stop at a cigar rolling and local coffee and wine tasting hut. A separate company does the pictures and video, the product was nice but felt $60 was expensive so be prepared. You can pay with PayPal or credit card.
