What people are saying about Puerto Plata

I had an AMAZING time, my guide was Dan Marino and at the falls it was ChiChi and Abucco. They were awesome It's quite a walk to the falls but TOTALLY WORTH IT!!! I would say pack changing clothes, waterproof phone case, water shoes, cash, face mask and scarf for the buggy, towel, bug spray. The lunch was DELICIOUS, and at the family owned market they made me, on the spot, a beautiful elephant piece and etched my name.

Excellent trip!

The guides were all super fun and very nice and helpful, and they made sure that we all had smiles on our faces and that we truly enjoyed ourselves. It is also clear that they care for their animals, and their zipline course was also put together very well. I definitely recommend this activity.

We had a great time. We chose the longer horse back ride to the beach and being inexperienced it left me sore but that is part of trotting on a horse. The zip lines do involve a little walking and climbing but are more than worth the effort.

Angel and Ramon were very nice, patient and professional. They made sure we were ok with the horses. Took lots of pictures of us and made sure we liked it before continuing with our ride

This tour was AMAZING ! I highly recommend once a once and a life time experience, Alex and Mega tours were the best tour guides, we were taken care of every single step of the way
