Puerto Plata

Puerto Plata ©
Although out of fashion in the past decades, major revitalization efforts have made a trip to Puerto Plata a growingly popular option for the adventurous travelers.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Puerto Plata: La Aurora Cigar Factory (in Santiago de los Caballeros) and Zipline (in Sosua). And it doesn't end there: make a splash at Ocean World Adventure Park, Puerto Plata, steep yourself in history at Fortaleza San Felipe, admire the sheer force of 27 Charcos, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Golden Beach (Playa Dorada).

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, read our Puerto Plata itinerary builder site.

Kharkiv, Ukraine to Puerto Plata is an approximately 21.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 6 hours traveling from Kharkiv to Puerto Plata. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Kharkiv in August: high temperatures in Puerto Plata hover around 39°C and lows are around 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Thu) early enough to drive to Santo Domingo.
