Astuto Travel welcomes travelers who want something a little different and encourages them to explore the beaches and Puerto Plata on the coast of the Dominican Republic. There are several options for a few day trips and exploring before returning to the beach.

One of the little-known gems in Puerto Plata, the Waterfalls of Damajaqua Cascades, can be viewed during a six-hour tour through the dense tropical forest.

Astuto Travel highly recommends this as the canopy views frequently include tropical birds. A series of 27waterfalls results in many crystal clear pools set within ancient limestone cliffs.

Visitors can splash, swim, and play in the pools at the foot of the falls. Lunch is included, with grilled meat, pasta, salad, and fruit served buffet style.

A full-day city tour by Teleferico Cable Car takes vacationers to a variety of landmarks, including the San Felipe Fort, Brugal Rum Center, and Dominican Amber Museum.

The trip even extends up Isabel de Torres Mountain, treating vacationers to a fantastic view. The local guide gives an excellent history lesson throughout the tour. There is no better way to see and experience Puerto Plata than via cable car.

Often called Paradise Island, the uninhabited island of Cayo Paraiso, is located off the coast of Puerta Plata. It is a favorite spot for snorkelers and tours via catamaran.

A short speedboat ride from Punta Rucia is the usual approach to the island. Swimming and snorkeling are available around the island, including the lagoons. Each tour is about 2.5 hours, and visitors will see tropical fish, sea turtles, stingrays, and bright coral formations.

Astuto Travel knows it’s hard to leave the beautiful beaches of the Dominican Republic but thinks that these few examples of things make the trip well worth it.

Astuto Travel understands that life can be short. The world is our playground, and we should enjoy it as often as possible. Life is short, and vacations are a must. Take short ones or long ones. Just keep traveling.
