Itinerary
From your hotel you will board an air-conditioned vehicle for the ride to the first stop: Puerto Plata’s spectacular Teleferico (the only cable car in the Caribbean). It reveals incredibly panoramic ocean and city views as you ascend to the summit of Mount Isabel, extremely high above sea level. At the top of the mountain you’ll find beautiful tropical gardens and a statue of Christ (a smaller replica of the one in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and of course, the breathtaking views of Puerto Plata and the Atlantic ocean. Duration in this spot is approximately 90 minutes.

After riding the cable car back down the mountain we board back on the bus and head to Macorix House of Rum where you'll tour the factory and learn the history of rum on the island and sample all of their delicious rum products!  Ask for seconds of your favorite!  Then a quick visit to Fortaleza San Felipe, an authentic and historic Spanish fortress, also known as El Morro de San Felipe, that was built in 1577 to protect the city of Puerto Plata from pirates and corsairs! The Dominican Republic was an integral stop on the Spanish Main and was terrorized by many notorious pirates for years, including the famous British pirate Henry Morgan.

From the fort, take a quick drive down the beautiful Malecon (Ocean Drive) to a vibrant courtyard cafe for lunch. When you book this tour, you will be provided the menu ahead of time so the meal and drink selections can be pre-ordered. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is simply relaxed and charming!

After lunch, board the bus for a short ride to Puerto Plata's town square, where you'll stop for a quick look at the Victorian architecture and then walk down the street to Espigon Cigars, an authentic cigar factory and humidor. Here, you’ll learn about the history of tobacco on the island, roll your own cigar and sample the famous local rum and mamajuana!

But the tour is not done yet! In the Dominican Republic, music is an important part of the culture and no visit to the island is complete until you've danced! Local "taxi” dancers will first dance for you and then, teach you a few basic steps and you'll "fiesta and bachata like a Dominican with Dominicans" until it’s time to return to your hotel!
