There is so much to do and see in Puerto Plata that accomplishing it all in one weekend will be tough, but we have no doubt that you will succeed in having a great time. Whether your getaway will be with friends, family, or just your significant other, planning a weekend getaway will help you to recharge and escape the mundane of every day life. Of course, you will need to plan the time of year of your quick getaway in Puerto Plata, choose your flights, select the size of your villa, and choose from the many exciting activities Puerto Plata has to offer.
First and foremost, choose the time of year that best suits you. Puerto Plata offers a minimal to moderate range in air temperature, water temperature and wind. If you and your guests are not fans of high humidity, then planning your getaway around the months of July, August and September is a good idea for you. If you are all big fans of warm weather and warm tropical waters, the “winter” months in Puerto Plata will greatly resonate with you. Who knows, you may even extend your weekend getaway into a one or two week getaway!
Finding flights for everyone involved can easily become complicated. Have someone help you with your flights, or better yet find a travel agent with the ability to work with everyone’s time constraints, time zones and special needs. You will want everyone to arrive around the same time so a travel agent may very well be your best option.
When staying in a villa, you are provided with a vast number of amenities you wouldn’t ordinarily experience when staying in a hotel. Perks such as a private pool and a private Chef will allow you to decide if you prefer to head out to a local restaurant for breakfast or enjoy it with your travel companion(s) poolside in the privacy of your villa. Due diligence is key, so make sure to read the many Inside Puerto Plata blog posts to gain a full understanding about Puerto Plata, the local cuisine, top rated restaurants, excursions, monthly events and beautiful beaches.
Activities are aplenty in Puerto Plata. It will be very difficult for you to narrow down your “to-do” list, as the number of once in a lifetime excursions, activities and events are plentiful. Therefore, when on a weekend getaway in Puerto Plata and stretched for time, researching and deciding on your top activity selections is key. Day trips to Punta Rusia or Cayo Paraiso on a luxury yacht to snorkel and relax is one of the many fabulous activities that must be added to your list. The cable car ride up to Mount Isabel de Torres followed by shopping, drinks and dinner is another day of fun altogether. Visit Damajaqua Cascades, or 27 Waterfalls, to see the absolute beauty surrounding Puerto Plata. You will hike, jump from cliffs into cool springs and experience the beautiful landscape all in one day. Are you a golf lover? If so, 18 holes at the famous Playa Dorada Golf Course is a must, followed by a trip to the beach to relax and enjoy the cool ocean water.
Puerto Plata has an endless array of options for each and every visitor. Follow these tips when planning your weekend getaway and you are guaranteed to experience the weekend of your life!
