    hrs Estimate Duration

Gain an overall understanding of Puerto Plata through a diversity of attractions that will lend insight into the local history and lifestyles. At the Macorix rum factory, you will learn how the acclaimed spirits are distilled and aged, according to a proprietary process that the Carrion family has handed down through the generations. While driving around the 60-block historical city center, you will pause to explore the 16th-century Fort San Felipe and browse the unusual Amber Museum. Its collection of plants and ancient creatures preserved in fossilized tree sap, known as amber, is extraordinary. The Luperón House Museum contains photos and personal effects that celebrate the achievements of national hero General Gregorio Luperón. For a perspective of present-day Puerto Plata, you can meander through popular Central Park, browse the artisan shops that line the atmospheric streets and amble down the Pink Alley, a monochromatic walkway where everything is painted bright pink.
