Our first in Dominican Republic. San Felipe de Puerto Plata, or simply Puerto Plata, Spanish for "silver port", with its caramel-coloured beaches nestled against a backdrop of mountains is ranked among the country's best. The beaches stretch along the Atlantic Ocean instead of the Caribbean Sea. The Creole culture of the island represents a vibrant, rich cultural inheritance from many parts of the world. This intermix of cultures is best expressed in the merengue dance and music of the island. Merengue is a rhythmic mix of African and Caribbean origins, is very much part of life here.
