Amber Cove

Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

The Basics

Amber Cove—arguably an attraction in its own right—is an ideal jumping-off point from which to explore the Dominican Republic’s many attractions. Zipline courses through the Monkey Jungle, horseback rides through the countryside, and thrilling waterfall slides at Damajagua Waterfalls are among the more popular options, but Puerto Plata city tours and trips to Mundo King Creole Castle don’t disappoint. Many tours also depart direct from the port for added convenience.
