Touched down in Puerto Plata and looking for some fun? Vacation is all about relaxing and getting to enjoy yourself, and in Puerto Plata there are plenty of options for the traveler looking to do a bit of nighttime exploring. Here’s a breakdown of what you need to know when planning your nightlife in Puerto Plata.
Puerto Plata is a beautiful seaside resort community filled with beautiful men and women and palm trees that seem to lazily stretch out over the sea. The area’s resorts know that the best time is a comfortable one, so many of the resorts offer on-site party options. Depending on where you’re staying during your trip to Puerto Plata, you’ll likely find a host of entertainment – casinos and Vegas-type shows seem to be growing in popularity here. Keep an eye out for salsa bands, impromptu merengue dancing, and clubs like Hemingway’s Café offering karaoke and rock and roll. Keep in mind that in traditional Dominican culture, it’s typical that the men will ask the women to dance, just for the sport of it.
If it’s gambling you’re into, head on down to the Ocean World Casino, a beautiful and modern casino offering some great gambling as well as spectacular views of the waterfront. Five-star dining, gaming, and cocktail lounges make this one of the top casinos on the island. The Bravissimo Show is another Puerto Plata favorite, as it presents a great lineup of gorgeous performers on stage doing their Las Vegas thing, fully bedecked in flashy costumes and full of tropical Caribbean dance.
These options and more make Puerto Plata an excellent stopover on any vacation.
