Puerto Plata, on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic, is a dream destination wedding location for adventure seekers.
Unlike the southern parts of the island, Puerto Plata’s waters are choppy, which makes for great surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, and sailing.
Pico Duarte, the island’s tallest peak, is about one hour south of Puerto Plata in Armando Bermúdez National Park (it’s over 10,000 ft). While you are there, hike the other three peaks over 9,000 ft. And on your way back to the coast, stop by the town of Jarabacoa, filled with coffee farms and sugar plantations. This town is where the locals go on holiday...it’s known for dense forests and excellent rafting.
For those who want to take in all the beauty of a panoramic mountain view without the grueling trek up, take a cable car up Mount Isabel de Torres, home of a 35-acre botanical garden.
If you choose the former option, in the days following your hikes, visit the many historic forts of the city, which was discovered by Christopher Columbus and founded as a city only 10 years later. Fort San Filipe is one of the New World’s oldest forts and worth a visit in the days before your destination wedding or on your honeymoon.
There are many options when it comes to choosing your Caribbean destination wedding location, but there are few places with as many activities, sights, and events as Puerto Plata. Destination wedding and honeymoon packages are difficult to organize. The weeks of research and planning can be grueling, and really sour an experience that should be 100% positive.
