This Amber Cove Sightseeing and Beach Excursion begins from the cruise center main gate in Amber Cove. Your local Dominican Republic shore excursion guide will be waiting for you and will then show you to your comfortable air-conditioned transportation. Your first photo stop will be at the Fort San Felipe, which is also known as El Morro de San Felipe. Commissioned by King Felipe II of Spain in 1564 it wasn't completed until 1577. Its strategic location helped to guard the entrance to the city's seaport for hundreds of years.

Next, you'll stop for views and photos of the famed Neptune Statue that is situated on a small island just off the coast. Although quite impressive now, this statue has seen its share of woes. The 22 ft. bronze sculpture has been hacked for the valuable metal, toppled over several times, and finally hacked to bits. However, the Islanders have true love for their guardian of the sea and it was returned to its full glory and now, with the support of 3 cables, once again rules the sea.

Your next sightseeing excursion stop will be at the Parque Independencia, which is the center of town. With churches, gazebos, scattered benches, and local music often playing, it is a true taste of Puerto Plata.

Finally, you will be taken to Playa Dorado, known as the "Golden Beach" of Puerto Plata, which is located near to the famous Hotel Blue JackTar, where a welcome drink awaits you. The ambiance is strictly tropical and friendly and boasts of lovely beaches and surroundings. Take a stroll, take a dip, it's your choice.  

Your guide, as always, will inform you of the beach and resort activities available to you. You are welcome to purchase food and drinks from the hotel bar. You may use the lounge chair, towel service and other use of the facilities including complimentary Wi-Fi internet access. At Playa Dorada, you may also enjoy activities and water sports including windsurfing, snorkeling, kayaking, parasailing, diving and more, at your own expense.

After a great sightseeing excursion and beach resort excursion in Amber Cove, Dominican Republic you will be returned to your Amber Cove Puerto Plata cruise ship terminal!

Such a great time with Henry, Misreal, and Daniel! So glad we decided to do this one! We got a little tour of the island which was enough for our first time here. Henry was a great guide amd very informative about his native island. We were the only one from our group who went to the beach so they actually had one of our guides stay with us at the beach til the bus came back with the others from the rest of their tour. That made us more at ease because we knew for sure we wouldn't be forgotten and left behind :). We had about 2 hrs on the beach which was just enough time for us. Plenty of chairs, umbrellas, and those comfy beach beds, with excellent food if you wanted a snack or lunch. Very relaxing...only a few beach people came up to ask us to buy things but they weren't pushy and moved on if see said no thanks. When they arrived to pick us up from the beach we were greeted with all the rum punch we wanted and had a fun ride on our way back to the ship! We stopped for a photo at the Neptune statue and Henry got us all bananas from a local stand. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND THESE GUYS!!!!

This was our favorite Excursion of our whole cruise. We had Wi-Fi and water when we arrived to the bus. Everyone was so amazing and friendly. The tour was informative and fun. We had VIP service from start to finish. When we arrived the Blue JackTar Beach resort we had beautiful beach beds, the drinks and food were excellent. On the way back to the port we stopped for fresh bananas. They were delicious. I can't say enough good things about the people and this tour. Will definitely take this tour again when I am back in Amber Cove.

Perfect combination, exploring and beach time. Our guide Milton was great. A guide that enjoys their job really makes a difference. He was very knowledgeable about the area and did not rush us in each spot. While we were at the malecon a few local vendors would salute Milton and everyone was friendly. Our time at the resort was the best way to end our day. There were not a lot of hotel guests so we had the service and amenities basically all to ourselves. The staff was great and the rum kept on coming! Love the variety of the menu. Not your typical "touristy" meals but had a variety of seafood platters and dips.

This tour was amazing, all the stop in the highlight were very interesting and our guide provided a lot of important facts about the culture and country. After that, we visited a nice beach hotel, very clean and had an open airy feeling. We had some amazingly fresh and very tasty lunch at the beach.

The walk to get to the meeting point was a lot further than we anticipated but once we got there it was wonderful. The guide took us around pointing out historical places. There was several pushy people in the markets surrounding the stops but the guide did a good job of interfering when they wouldn't stop at "no thank you". We visited right after a storm so the beach wasn't real clean and the waves were too rough but it would probably be perfect if we have went a few days later. The waiter came through often and the food/drinks were good. We would definitely revisit.
