Puerto Plata’s crown jewel attraction offers a day of hiking through thick forest, crossing footbridges and passing numerous flora before eventually reaching a rocky hilltop where you’ll begin making your way down by jumping or sliding down a series of waterfalls!
One of the most beautiful natural attractions on the north coast, Laguna Dudú’s series of turquoise, freshwater lagoons surrounded with caves and lush forest will keep you swimming all day long. Located in Cabrera, approximately two hours’ drive east of Puerto Plata and an hour from Playa Grande, the park offers plenty of outdoor entertainment. Swim or rent a kayak to navigate the waters, explore one of the caves on foot, or brave the makeshift zipline at your own risk, throwing you approximately 10 meters (33 feet) down into the deepest lagoon. There’s an on-site restaurant and bar, and plenty of green space to relax all day long.
