If the idea of holidaying in a tropical paradise sounds good to you, head to the Dominican Republic. Considered one of the most geographically-diverse countries in the Caribbean, DR boasts stunning mountain scenery, desert scrublands, charming colonial architecture and beaches galore.

When it comes to things to do in the Dominican Republic, there are a plethora of activities to enjoy. In addition to laying on the gold-sand beaches and soaking up some sun, you can also visit numerous historic and cultural sites such as Fort San Felipe  or  Mount Isabel de Torres .

But perhaps the most fun that can be had in the Dominican Republic is to spend a day with the dolphins and more in Ocean World Park!

Where is Ocean World Park?

Puerto Plata History

The Ocean World Adventure Park, Marina and Casino is located along the banks of Cofresi Beach in beautiful Puerto Plata. Meaning “Port of Silver,” Puerto Plata seems to literally sparkle in the Caribbean sun. No wonder the area attracts so many travelers each year, all looking for a
little R&R and all-inclusive decadence.

Just a quick flight from DR’s capital of Santo Domingo, Puerto Plata offers visitors a variety of activities from shopping to eating delicious food and partaking in a fabulous nightlife. But you can shop and eat and dance the night away in plenty of places around the world.

What you can’t necessarily do on every vacation is hang out with amazing dolphins! And that’s why we highly recommend you spend a day or two at Ocean World Park. The best part is, free transportation service is available from any resort in Puerto Plata and the local area.
