Where is Puerto Plata
Plata is located on the North Coast of the island of the Dominican Republic, just west of Puerto Rico. The North Coast is
a beautiful scenic area with picturesque beaches with a breathtaking mountain backdrop. This tropical paradise and its atmosphere
make it an ideal candidate for your next all inclusive holidays. If you leave the golden sand beaches there are
a plethora of delicious restaurants including traditional dishes to sample. Stay out late and experience the nightlife and
local music scene. You'll be swept into this colorful, passionate culture by the view, tastes, and music so prevalent in the
area. For those who are interested in venturing off the beaten path, fluency in Spanish isn't necessary, a kind gesture or
smile will take you far.
You can get to the Dominican Republic by air
from anywhere in the world, usually cheaply and easily. The two major international airports are Santo Domingo's Las Americas
International Airport (SDQ), Puerto Plata's Gregorio Luperon International Airport (POP) - located between Puerto Plata
and Sosua, about a 15-minute taxi ride either way - and Santiago's International Airport (STI) - about 50-minute taxi
drive from Puerto Plata. There are six other airports in the island, though most are used
for domestic and commercial traffic. However, some airlines provide service to Punta Cana and La Romana.
