San Juan, Puerto Rico (PRnine - December 4, 2008) - It’s said that good Caribbean
vacations come from good research. Finding a place to do that research, however, is another story. By helping outsiders feel
like insiders, PuertoPlata.com introduces visitors to the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of one of the largest islands
in the Caribbean - the Dominican Republic.
“Puerto Plata and the Dominican Republic are exciting places full
of things to do, places to see, and people to meet. Our website provides the most comprehensive information available on these
exciting destinations and helps give outsiders an inside view of the island and all its treasures.” says Massiel Gonzalez
The website is broken down into multiple categories ranging from weddings to local events with each
category connecting people to relevant events, places, and people. PuertoPlata.com also features “Insider Tips”
that explain topics such as currency exchange, etiquette, and traveling with children. For example, did you know that even
if you reserve an all inclusive resort that requires no cash while on vacation, you will still need $10 in U.S. currency at
the airport for a tourist card? These insider tips also help visitors understand aspects of the Dominican Republic that typically
go unnoticed by novice travelers.
“By breaking down our site into multiple interest categories we can connect
visitors with exactly what they’re looking for,” says Gonzalez “Our primary goal is to assist travelers
in finding the information they want, and our insider tips section is an example of this. These tips give a potential tourist
an opportunity to learn more about topics that are not typically covered in travel books or magazines, and they are constantly
up-to-date.” The website also accepts tips among its audience through the guestbook section, to be shared later in its
monthly opt-in newsletters.
In addition to the insider tips, PuertoPlata.com’s “Tours and Attractions”
section lets visitors directly purchase tours from Viator all around the Dominican Republic. Many travel websites provide
information on what to see and do, but few offer the ability to purchase tours directly.
PuertoPlata.com plans to add
new features and enhance their offerings in the near future. For more information please visit www.puertoplata.com
