This Amber Cove Sightseeing Excursion will take you to the famous “Christ the Redeemer” statue, then visit the famous Fort San Felipe. You will have the opportunity to stop at the Amber Museum as well as the central plaza where you’ll find architecture influenced by the Victorian era and then enjoy some free time to take a stroll, visit the local shops and maybe take some photos reminiscent of the postcards of yesterday.

NOTE: There is a minimum of 6 needed in your group for this excursion - combination of adults and children.

Your excursion begins as soon as you've walked through the main exit gate of the Amber Cove Cruise Terminal where your English speaking shore excursion guide will be waiting for you. Once you have checked in, you will aboard an air-conditioned transportation. There is a scenic 20-minute ride to the Puerto Plata City. Your transportation will either be a van or a minibus depending on the size of the group booked.

The first stop will be at the Brugal Rum Factory which produces 1.5 million liters of white and dark rum each year. Enjoy the narrated visit inside the factory and take a sip of the quality rum produced here. You will have the option to buy from the wide variety of rums. The distillery is closed during the weekends though.

Your next stop is just 10 minutes away, at Playa Dorada Beach where you will visit the Amber Museum. See the displays of amber pieces natural and hand-designed including some with enclosed fossils hundreds of years old. The building itself is a jewel, a nice example of the Neoclassical architecture.

Next, you will make a 20-minute ride to Puerto Plata’s oldest surviving building, Fort San Felipe. This fort was built in 1564 by order of Philip II of Spain. Most of the city developed around the fort since protection was necessary against both French and English pirates that terrorized the local inhabitants. This fort was also declared a National Monument in 1980. Your experienced, English speaking guide will provide a bit of history and local bits of information along the way.

Then you are off to Puerto Plata’s central plaza, “Parque Independencia.” Here is where you will see the charming restored, gingerbread houses and shops. After an orientation, you will enjoy free time to take a stroll through the plaza where you might see some of the staff dressed up in vintage clothing, visit the unique shops and boutiques, take some photos, and maybe stop for a cup of Dominican Republic’s world-famous coffee at one of the cafes. Walk along the Malecon and enjoy the sea breeze.

You will close out your day with a visit to the cigar factory, where the local craftsmen produce the finest cigars. You can watch the process and buy the cigars at discounted prices. Once your time is complete at the cigar factory, you will be returned to the Amber Cove Cruise Terminal.

There is a minimum of 6 per booking for this excursion but be any combination of adults+children.

The perfect day!
     5/5  March 2020
We had a perfect day in Amber Cove, we visited the rum and cigar factory and tasted some of their local rum, (I did purchase a bottle). we visited the fort and the museum and learned about the port history. Then we walked around the main plaza, the church and had the opportunity to purchase souvenirs and tasted some local treats. This was something calm, fun and peaceful for our age, without missed to mention that we had a friendly and knowledgable guide.

I liked how this was kept personalized with only 10 passengers. We had a wonderful guide explaining every location, taking pictures for us and introducing us to his beautiful country. Franki was excellent, allowing us to modify the order of the locations we visited so we decided to leave the central plaza stroll for the end where we had free time to explore, have lunch and shop.

We went for a family trip to Amber Cove and were looking for an activity for the older folks since our grandkids did the waterfalls and we decided on a classic sightseeing excursion. Our guide Frank was a very nice tour guide with excellent narrating skills. We visited a lot of locations and we really enjoyed the Amber museum and the rum factory where we were able to purchase 2 bottles of some delicious rum, the Papa Andres and the Extra Viejo. Both really recommended as well as this tour if you are visiting Puerto Plata.

Every two years my husband and I, travel by cruise with other 3 couples with whom we have been friends for almost 10 years, it has become our tradition. For this year, we chose the Carnival Magic since we all wanted to visit Amber Cove. What a great excursion, our guide was lovely and very knowledgeable, she took us to all the must see places in Amber Cove,even a cigar factory where our husbands purchased a few cigars. At the plaza you can visit nice stores to do some shopping, I bought some beautiful amber earrings!!
