    Neat to see
    If in Puerto Plata, it’s worth going to see Umbrella Street. Seeing the street in person is much more impressive than any picture or video. However, is it worth getting off the ship only for this street? No. I would use caution and take a taxi, do not walk from the cruise port or drive your own car there. We were there on a cruise and the port area is very clean, secure and manufactured. The actual city is a bit rough and I don’t think we would venture off anywhere on our own. Before leaving the port area, we had to identify ourselves with what ship and how many in our party, they kept record of everyone going into the city from the port. The streets are very small and congested, a lot of traffic jams. Our taxi driver parked and escorted us around at each of the sites we went to. At one point we were stuck for about 30 minutes because other taxis triple parked and we had to find all the other drivers to move their cars out of the way. If you drove your own rental car there, I don’t know that it would be safe to leave it or where you could even park. The shops on the street weren’t too impressive and I thought everything was overpriced especially for what it was. It’s neat to see and makes for some great pictures because there’s not really a lot to do or see in that area/port.

    A nice walk from the park to umbrella street
    You can walk the historic center of Puerto Plata in about an hour or two starting at the park and then meandering through the narrow streets and snacking on some nice gelato or other ice cream. The Umbrella street makes for a great photo opportunity, and there are other attractions like the Pink street just across the street as well. Nearby are free tours like the amber museum and a ton of souvenir shops as well.

    Easy walk from Taino Bay cruise port
    This was a quick easy walk from cruise port at Taino Bay. Many taxis and walking tour operators tried to get us to go with them, but we kept walking past them all. It was about a 6 minute walk past the security at the pier. I had talked to someone who went the week before I did and was glad I did because it was intimidating leaving the port security area. However, it was a quick, safe walk and glad I didn't pay for a taxi to see umbrella and pink street!

    Puerto Plata MUST SEE !!!
    Walkable (5km) from Iberostar Costa Dorata but also a cheap Uber ride. Like waking in a post card. Not a ton of places to eat but a few small spots but recommend El Patio de Frida

It was pretty cool. I'm not sure what the purpose is, but go so you can say you did. Makes for really good pictures, but there are lots of people. There are also some neat shops there.

Was rushed through by travel guide, did not get to walk down entire street and take in beauty. Travel guide are more concerned with taking you to places where they try to sell you items.

It’s a nice place to have a drink or coffee and to take pictures. There’s a nice Mexican restaurant around the corner to have a mojito drink.
