Puerto Plata

One thing you should not miss while visiting Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic is riding the teleférico–the only complete cable car ride you’ll find in the whole Caribbean region, operating continuously since 1975. The exhilarating 10-minute ride takes you up, up, and away in one of two cable cars, 2,625 feet above Puerto Plata. Below is magical scenery, from the sea on your north to the lush, green plains that eventually lead you to the other end of the cable at Mount Isabel de Torres. Make sure to explore the nature reserve and botanical gardens, and enjoy the ride back down by cable car once more before heading out.
