Where to stay in Puerto Plata

Puerto Plata offers an abundance of accommodations, from mid-range hotels and condominiums to luxury beach resorts. The most popular place to stay is near Playa Dorado, where you'll have easy access to both the beach and the nearby golf resort. Costambar is another desirable option, providing proximity to one of the city's most vibrant beaches. If you stay in the city center, you'll forgo prime beach access, but will have views of the scenic Fortaleza San Felipe.
