What people are saying about Puerto Plata Province

I had an AMAZING time, my guide was Dan Marino and at the falls it was ChiChi and Abucco. They were awesome It's quite a walk to the falls but TOTALLY WORTH IT!!! I would say pack changing clothes, waterproof phone case, water shoes, cash, face mask and scarf for the buggy, towel, bug spray. The lunch was DELICIOUS, and at the family owned market they made me, on the spot, a beautiful elephant piece and etched my name.

Great experience. With a lot of mud through the jungle to a great beach. 11/10 ... even when I lost a bike, the guide quickly came up with his replacement buggy for me. I thought it was great and would recommend it to everyone.

I got to be the only one and had no queues to wait in! That was pretty awesome. The zip lines are fine but I sort of imagined them to be a bit more thrilling. Still fun!

It was amazing! Gabriel was so patient with us as we had two non swimmers! Highly recommend!

Super cool ride lots of ridge only stop on a fantastic beach and for washing mud
