The old town of Puerto Plata is home to many attractions. A few of our favorites include the tobacco shop where you can buy cigars and Mama Juana, and you can also watch the process in which they make both of these.
Parque Central contains a unique Victorian style gazebo, and was full of Christmas decorations when we visited during the holidays. It also has its fair share of locals looking to make a buck in exchange for being your guide for the day.
Mercado Viejo (Old Market) and Mercado Nuevo (New Market) are a few of the other sites that attract visitors. We took a guagua from Cabarete to Puerto Plata and here are a few of the highlights of our day.
