    A beautiful beach close to a resort with the warmest water you can imagine. A lot of tourists with many of the tourist necessities close at hand.

    Great beach but very crowded and it wasn't that clean and we were expecting it to be much cleaner, but we enjoyed the couple of hours we spent there with sun bathing.

    Renting a beach launcher for around 150 Pesos is possible, with shade or in the sun. There are merchants bringing you coconuts, sweets or other treats, if you wish. There are also restaurants and bars for your lunch. Only disadvantage is the plastic trash that washes up on the beach. Beach shoes are recomended due to the water not being clear, and the trash that can be washed up.

    Jose is the best tour guide in Puerto Plata. He engaged with our 8yr old son and our 6 yr old daughter immediately and included them in our custom built tour. He turned our unplanned day into Puerto Plata into the best stopover of all seven stops from our cruise ship stops. His vehicle is very comfortable and we had ample room with my husband up front with Jose and myself and the two kids with generous room in the back. He proposed a family adventure at Telefonico (Cable car ride and rainforest) which was exceptional! He took care of everything. I appreciated how he helped us to manage our time. He allowed me to go ahead and join the very long line while he and my husband grabbed our tickets. This made a lot of sense as we were able to get on the cable soon enough to enjoy the beautiful scenery before the mist set in. He guided us through the rain forest and surprised my little girl with an adventure at the turtle pond. We would not have found this pond on our own! Then we head of to see more and more and more. Shopping at the best spots and visiting the chocolate factory. I did not want to spend time at the factory, but my son did. So we took at vote and he sided with my son, so off we went to the choc factory and we all had a wonderful time. My son appreciated that very much! Jose is very in tune with families and he makes sure everyone is happy. He managed our time and even though we thought we were not able to do more, he still made a short stop at the fort, where me learned more about the culture and had some amazing photographs taken. All in all this was way more value than we had originally imagined and we were extremely pleased with the professional service, thoughtfulness and genuine support that Jose provided. We are looking forward to seeing him very soon!
