Christopher Columbus may have made an error when he landed on North America and declared that it was India, but he made no such mistake in describing Puerto Plata as “the fairest land under heaven.”

Known as “La Novia del Atlántico,” or “The Bride of the Atlantic,” Puerto Plata sings a siren’s song to visitors and locals alike, dancing them through lush tropical terrain and pristine beaches that invite anyone who lays eyes on them to relax for a lifetime and never go back.
