- Ride the only cable car in the Caribbean
- Take lessons in cigar rolling and ‘taxi’ dancing
- The quintessential Dominican Republic cultural tour
It’s not for nothing that this experience is called ‘the ultimate’ - from start to finish, it’s packed with exciting, fascinating and entertaining cultural stops, as well as some spectacularly beautiful views. You’ll begin at the Teleferico, the only cable car in the Caribbean, for a trip to the summit of Mount Isabel. Here, among tropical gardens and stunning panoramas of Puerto Plata and the Atlantic, you’ll see a replica of the Christ the King statue of Brazil. Heading back down, a bus takes you over to historic San Felipe Fort, built in the 16th century to protect the country from the pirates and corsairs who terrorised the Spanish Main back in those days.
Lunch is served in a courtyard cafe, from a choice of menus, in a lively and charming atmosphere, before you head on into Puerto Plata. In the town square, you’ll admire the Victorian architecture, and stop by Espigon Cigars to learn about the history of tobacco in the Dominican Republic. You’ll even get to roll your own! Have a tipple of rum, and then continue on for a quick and lively dance lesson with the locals. This Dominican Republic gift experience is non-stop fun all the way, and highly recommended for those seeking an authentic flavour of island life.
