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.

Puerto Plata Shore Excursion: ATV adventure for Amber Cove & Taino Bay Passenger
While the drive down there is terrifying, and our driver didn’t talk at all, and his car was barely running (lol), Frank did a GREAT tour. The ATVs were in great shape, the guided part was exciting and the enthusiasm was spectacular. We had too much fun! Be warned though…. Bring clothes, shoes and a scarf that you are willing to throw in the trash afterwards, because you will get DRENCHED in mud and water. Haha. Took me 30 minutes to rinse it out of my shirt, shorts and shoes.

Amber Cove & Taino Bay Shore Excursion: 2 person Buggy Tour
FUN! We had such a great time. Ali was a great tour guide and was so friendly. We splashed through mud, swimming at the most beautiful beach and toured the forest and coast seeing people riding donkeys as transportation. Tips: bring cash on buggy as you stop at a cigar rolling and local coffee and wine tasting hut. A separate company does the pictures and video, the product was nice but felt $60 was expensive so be prepared. You can pay with PayPal or credit card.
