Amber Cove Tours

6 reviews
Amber Cove, opened in November 2015, may be newer than most cruise ports in the Caribbean, but its nearby attractions are far from rookie. Carnival Cruise Lines built the port, located on the Dominican Republic’s so-called Amber Coast and servicing Puerto Plata, for the use of their cruise ships along with other large-capacity liners that the the Carnival Corporation owns.

The Basics
Amber Cove is an ideal jumping-off point for exploring the Dominican Republic’s rife offerings of tropical adventures. 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. Though cruise guests don’t even have to leave Amber Cove to have a good time, as the port itself is full of amenities like bars, retail shops, and even a full-scale water park. And if you don’t want to take on outdoor challenges, you can just chill—made easy with the port’s waterfront cabanas. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Amber Cove is perfect for families, offering nearby attractions such as Ocean World Adventure Park.
  • Don’t miss out on the many closeby beaches, including Cabarete Beach and Golden Beach.
  • Most shore excursions include multiple stops, making it easier to do more in a short amount of time.

How to Get There

Port Information
Although Spanish is the official language of the Dominican Republic, most shore excursions are offered in English, as are other services catered to tourists. However, it doesn’t hurt to brush up on your Spanish. The currency for the Dominican Republic is the Dominican peso, but some businesses around Amber Cove accept American dollars.
