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.

4 Wheel ATV Tour at Amber cove and Taino Bay in Puerto Plata
Chris was our tour guide at the Buggy Atv company. It was 5 mins or so from the Amber cove cruise port. This was by far the longest and beautiful scenic atv ride ever!!! It’s a must as an experience. You truly get to enjoy the ride and views of the countryside of DR. We loved it.

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
So much fun with my adult son! We were not prepared for the mud we were about to endure. Definitely bring clothes to throw away after tour & water shoes. And bring an extra set of clothes to change into after the excursion. Leave that bag with driver. You will get EXTREMELY muddy!!!

4 Wheel ATV Tour at Amber cove and Taino Bay in Puerto Plata
This was the icing on the cake for my trip! Even though it was raining, it actually made the tour better. it added the excitement of riding in the mud and kept us cooler. Our tour guide ( his name started with N) was awesome. Kept us laughing while educating us about the island and it’s cultural. We made some stops along the way to really take it all in.

Amber Cove & Taino Bay Shore Excursion: 2 person Buggy Tour
My wife and I had SO MUCH fun! The tour guide was so funny, you could tell he truly loves his job. The photography was so professional. The staff communicated with us so we'll and gave us good directions to find them when we got off our ship. If you don't mind getting muddy and wet this is easily the experience for you! Well done 10/10!!!
