The town of Sosua is located in the Puerto Plata province on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. The homes here are of Central American style with touches of modern influence and tropical charm. There are two major neighborhoods: El Batey, which is the main part of Sosua, and Los Charamicos, where you’ll find the rousing nightlife. With restaurants, a Jewish museum, bars, shops, and so much more, you’ll never run out of things to do in both areas of Sosua! In between the two neighborhoods lies the fantastic beach, a sheltered cove known for its offshore coral reef, tropical fish, and stunningly colorful plants.
If you love the beach, you’ll love Puerto Plata. Each of the area’s beaches is perfect for both relaxation and water sports. Puerto Plata also features dozens of resorts, an 18-hole golf course, and historical buildings, as well as restaurants, shops, bars, and cafes that line the streets. Go scuba diving, take a tour of the city, check out Ocean World, or hike to Charcos de Damajagua where you will see 27 picturesque waterfalls. Filled with Mediterranean and old-world style homes, you are sure to love your stay in Puerto Plata.
A resort town on the Dominican Republic’s northern coast, Cabarete is a charming vacation spot and only 20 minutes from the airport. Because Cabarete Bay is protected by a coral reef, the waters are calm but still create a lovely breeze for water sports. The city has a relaxed vibe, with dozens of restaurants, bars, and little shops. In front of Cabarete is a semi-circular beach ideal for sunbathing, swimming, and admiring the coastline, and behind is a peaceful lagoon with stunning tropical vegetation. The nightlife is an added bonus to a stay in Cabarete, where your days can be spent on the beach, meandering through the city streets, or horseback riding into the sunset.
