Puerto Plata

Puerto Plata

In his first trip to the stupendous region, Christopher Columbus noted the silver-tipped appearance of the area’s prominent mountain. As “plata” is Spanish for “silver,” Columbus christened it “Monte de Plata,” and the city became known as Puerto de Plata. Since then it is referred to by its abbreviated name—and it continues to draw curious and adventurous visitors. Luring vacationers much as it had Columbus, Puerto Plata is one of the Dominican Republic’s most renowned cities. Lending to a bright culture of friendly people and recreational activities, Puerto Plata will exceed even your wildest and greatest of expectations.
