Sunwing by Night in Puerto Plata
Duration: Half Day
This late afternoon excursion is a great way to see the historic and cultural city of Puerto Plata as the sun goes down. Enjoy a relaxed stroll down the Malecón and browse the shops before heading down to Ocean World for a flutter in the casino and dancing the night away in the disco. Not to be missed, this memorable evening is a wonderful addition to your holiday in the Dominican Republic.
Located on the North Coast of the Caribbean island of Hispaniola, the Puerto Plata province won’t fail to captivate you with its majestic natural beauty; warm, friendly people and fun and relaxed Latin American culture. This tour will give you a glimpse of the region’s highlights as you spend an afternoon exploring the old city of Puerto Plata, meaning the “Port of Silver” in Spanish. Founded by Christopher Columbus in 1502, this quaint colonial city is well known for its Victorian architecture and famous attractions such as the Amber Gallery, Brugal’s Rum Factory and the 16th century San Felipe Fortress, which was built to protect the city from pirates.
One of the most popular attractions for tourists is the cable car, which takes you up to the top of Mount Isabel de Torres and offers spectacular views of the city, mountains and Atlantic Ocean from the summit. Wander around the picturesque Central Park in the city centre and stroll leisurely down the Malecón. This relaxed promenade runs alongside the ocean and features numerous cafes and typical Dominican restaurants. This is a popular place for tourists and locals at the weekends, when roadside vendors prepare snacks and the atmosphere is buzzing with the sounds of Latin music blaring. Enjoy free time here for relaxation and shopping as the sun goes down.
As night falls we make our way to Ocean World, a unique complex that boasts an enormous adventure park, marina, disco and casino. Popular with tourists, it offers some of the best entertainment and night life in Puerto Plata. Spend the evening drinking cocktails and dancing the night away in the stunning Lighthouse Lounge & Disco, or try your luck in the Caribbean's most glamorous aquatic-themed casino. The fun doesn’t stop! You will receive a voucher for 10.00USD to play in the casino, as well as free admission to the Lighthouse Disco with a drink included. This is a fantastic way to round off the day in style.
