Sun, Sand And Shopping

    hrs Estimate Duration


Watch artisans demonstrate how they make an array of local products and enjoy shopping for these signature items before relaxing on one of the area’s most beautiful beaches. You can expect to see premium cigars being hand-rolled from a blend of tobacco leaves, coffee beans being roasted and organic cocoa beans being processed for chocolate and to flavor other foods. You will also browse a museum devoted entirely to amber, an ancient hardened tree sap that is often used in jewelry. Similarly, larimar is a rare blue mineral only found in the Dominican Republic and it too is often incorporated into jewelry. Besides seeing how all of these raw products are hand-crafted into extraordinary merchandise, you will spend free time shopping in downtown Puerto Plata. And what better way to relax afterwards than by basking in the sun on a gorgeous stretch of beach and swimming in the sea.
