Tips & Transportation

    Best Boat Experience: Laguna Gri Gri

    Venturing out a little east of Puerto Plata, about halfway to Samana, is worth the trip if you visit the Gri Gri Lagoon. Motorboating into the ocean gives you great views of the mangroves and birds. Then, you'll head straight into a natural cave located right on the water. It's a different experience away from the beach and is worth it for the picturesque views.
  • ""

    Best Place for Local Fish: Maimon

    Want to sample the freshest fish that literally melts in your mouth? Try some local fish at Maimon. Staying at the Riu Bachata or Riu Merengue resorts will give you an up close and personal view of the Maimon Bay, because the beachfront resorts are right on Maimon Beach.

    Getting Around Puerto Plata

    You can get around Puerto Plata most conveniently on foot, but if you plan on taking trips outside of the resort area, we recommend you use Amstar Tours. Excursions to fun activities include transportation to and from the hotel, so you can count on a convenient and dependable ride.
