This beautiful seaside community is a much sought-after vacation spot by travelers from around the world. The soft, sandy beaches, warm Caribbean Sea, and variety of flora and fauna have drawn international tourists for decades.

It may be difficult to decide just what to do and see while on a Puerto Plata vacation, and that is why Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club has put together its list of the top four spots to see while visiting here. Each selection offers a different experience and helps visitors learn more about the area.

1. Damajagua Waterfalls: Only a short drive from Puerto Plata, the Damajagua Waterfalls are a series of 27 cascades and rock pools. However, Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club shares that tours here are not for the faint of heart. Tour guides usually have people climbing ladders up to the falls then sliding, swimming, and jumping down them wearing helmets and lifejackets. There is a visitor center near the falls to help tourists learn more about the area and a restaurant to grab a bite to eat after all of the exercise.

2. Forte San Felipe: Puerto Plata’s only remaining colonial structure, Forte San Felipe is one of the first European forts constructed in the Americas. The fort was built in 1564 to ward off French and English pirates. Years later, it was used as a prison for political dissidents. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club shares that the fort is ringed by a moat and outlined in lights at night. Inside its 8-foot-thick walls, tourists will discover some interesting wartime historical artifacts and a museum.

3. Sosúa: The small town of Sosúa lies approximately 15 miles east of Puerto Plata. It is known for its cosmopolitan character and beautiful sheltered beaches. In 1940, Sosúa became a refuge for approximately 600 European Jews who settled in the seaside town to start a new life. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club says the area is now home to many hotels, guesthouses, villas and cafes. Sosúa Beach, which is crescent-shaped, is lively with vendors and the calm waters are good for diving and snorkeling.

4. Cabarete: For tourists looking for bigger waves, Cabarete is the place to go. Cabarete is rimmed by a 4-mile stretch of white-sand beach. The warm waters and consistent winds here make it one of the best spots in the world for windsurfing and kiteboarding. Surfing is also popular in Cabarete. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club also shares that there are also myriad cafes, restaurants, and shops along the top of the beach.
