So glad to have found this forum as it is our first time going to DR. What are some not to miss things to do in Puerta Plata? We are staying at the Lifestyles Resort. Thank you in advance!
I have had great luck with Martin Espinal (at Isaira Tours, the owner). He is a great guy, runs a first class operation and speaks perfect English. See http://www.isairatours.com/
For a first timer, I would say the Puerto Plata tour (the fort, the Malecon, Brugal distillery etc) combined with the cable car. Martin is very flexible and can cater your tour to your preferences. Please tell him I referred you.
Here are some sites to look at for ideas. You may not be able to book them but rather have too book with the tour operators at the resort. However it will give you an idea on what is available.
