Santiago de Los Caballeros, a city full of history!
Your Puerto Plata tour starts with a comfortable bus trip from Puerto Plata heading south to reach the “Cibao” region in the center of the island. The first stop will be in the city of “Santiago de los Caballeros” (usually just called “Santiago”), which is the second most important city in the country. Visiting the cathedral and the historical center you will have excellent opportunities to take some nice photos.
At the monument called “Heroes de la Restauracion” you will learn something about the history of the country. Later, as you stroll through an exhibition of ceramic articles, you will see how these articles are made (handcrafted).
The next part of your tour takes you into the nearby mountains to a ranch called “Rancho Jarabacoa”. This place is located in a beautiful landscape that reminds a little bit of the Alps in Europe and you will now explore these mountains. To visit a waterfall called “Salto Baiguate” you can choose if you want to get there by horseback or jeep In any case, we recommend you to take a refreshing swim at the waterfall. After that, a varied and delicious buffet lunch is waiting for you. Finally, you will again drive through the city of Santiago and return to Puerto Plata.
