    Average trip. We arrived at approximately 11 am and made our way towards the entrance of the museum. After buying our admission tickets, we waited in the lobby for the next tour to start. The tour guide started promptly and took us from room to room in the museum, explaining the history and importance of amber in the Dominican Republic. There were multiple artifacts related to amber out for display, along with several informational plaques, detailing what we were seeing in front of us. Towards the end of the tour, we received a demonstration on how to roll cigars. There was a gift shop with various amber and tobacco products located in the last section of the building, however the items were quite pricey and we ended up not buying anything.

    Tip: I recommend spending 45 minutes here if you truly want to see everything.

    My husband and I would definitely go back. The staff was wonderful and made us feel welcome. There were so many different pieces of jewelry to purchase and each one was unique.

    Good trip. We arrived at approximately 10:45 am and made our way towards the entrance of the church. There were quite a few locals in the front of the church, trying to sell us taxi rides around the city. There was a mass going on during the time that we went, so we paid our respects and stayed for a couple of minutes.

    Tip: I recommend spending 15 minutes here if you truly want to see everything.

    Good trip. We arrived at approximately 12 pm and made our way inside the museum. After paying the admission fee, we were met by a tour guide who proceeded to give us a tour of the museum. The tour guide took us from room to room, while giving us a history lesson on one of the national hero’s in the Dominican Republic- General Gregorio Luperon. There were multiple artifacts out for display, and the tour guide was quite knowledgeable about the history of each item. The tour guide was able to answer all of the questions that we had.

    Tip: I recommend spending 30 minutes here if you truly want to see everything.

    1/21/24: My wife booked this tour for me, since I like rum. I found the tour to be very educational and entertaining. The video was pretty good, and the hostess was engaging. I enjoyed visiting the store before and after the tour. The rum sampling and displays areas were pretty cool. I ended up buying four bottles of rum, and was happy that I was able to sample three of them.

    Sad to see the decline of this mall. was thriving in past years. Bar and pizza place are great. Really sad to see all the empty stores though.

    It’s a pleasure seeing a smiling friendly face when exiting the airport. We’ve been using Jesus for several years as our transportation in the Puerto Plata area. He’s a safe driver even with all the lunatics on the road. Always prompt and keeps you informed. We also had his son drive us a couple of times, taking after his father. We are looking forward to next year being greeted by Jesus for the start of our vacation!

    I had an excellent experience at this spa. The customer service was great and the deep tissue massage was exactly what I needed. I would have booked more spa services if I had time. I would definitely recommend. I can't remember the name of my massage therapist but I attached a picture. She was excellent.

    The first price I was quoted for Larimar and Amber was far too high and it took quite a bit of haggling before I got the items down to the prices that were comparable to the researched prices I saw. Saw many tourists did not do their homework and paid for it.

    Enrique was the best!! My friend and I were visiting for her birthday and he took excellent care of us. He took us to the best dining and night life spots in the city and stayed with us the entire time. We both felt very safe and taken care of so we could really enjoy our time in Puerto Plata.

    The city tour was amazing. Enrique handled all of our transportation needs while we were there and at a good price. We will definitely use Enrique again when we return!!!

    I read several reviews before scheduling our trip. Glen was mentioned by name as the man to see if you wanted good Dominican cigars. We exchanged emails and texts prior to our arrival and he sent a car to come pick us up. This was very helpful as the taxi service operates a little differently down here as opposed to back home. Home they take you where you want to go. In the DR they take you where they get commissions to take you. So if you want to visit this fantastic shop, reach out to Glen first! We started off with a delicious cup of coffee and a shot of mama juana ( we wound up buying a bottle it was so good!) then Glen showed us around. My wife got to roll a cigar and we both had a sample stick while getting the owner's tour. Glen is very knowledgeable about cigars, coffee, politics, you name it! After buying a bundle of the cigar I sampled, Glen had his driver take us to a lovely seafood restaurant for lunch. If you like cigars, good cigars, go visit Glen!

    First time in DR. We used Jesus services from airport to resort and back to airport. Excellent experience. Jesus was waiting for us with our name once we stopped out of the airport. Excellent experience. If you go to cabarete, or need a lift from Airport, etc.. I can highly recommend him. Thank you for your services!
