In addition to all this, the guide will provide beverages throughout the excursion including rum punch, local beer, sodas, or bottled water for your convenience. This is a day you're likely to never forget.

Start this adventure by meeting your welcome team just outside the Taino Bay Cruise Center's main gate. Then your English-speaking Taino Bay, Puerto Plata sightseeing shore excursion guide will escort you to your air-conditioned van, or mini-bus, for a 30-minute picturesque drive that will be fully narrated.

The summit of Mount Isabela de Torres will take you 2,555 feet above sea level. You will board the Caribbean's only cable car for a 15-minute slow ride to the top. This cable car system was inaugurated in 1975, with the construction of Italian origin, and can carry 17 people. It is moved by an electric hydraulic system, conducted by a central operator situated in the base station. This small train is welcoming, with protective glass walls, and offers the visitor a panoramic view of the city descending from the hill including a garden with 215 features. You will have time at the top to explore a bit with your guide. See the beautifully kept gardens and a representation of the Christ the Redeemer Statue, which is an exact replica of the one in Rio de Janeiro, although a bit smaller. Then you will enjoy the scenic ride back down.

Next, you'll take a 20-minute drive to Fort San Felipe, which is a historic Spanish fortress that was built in 1577 to protect the city of Puerto Plata from pirates and other marauders. Here at the oldest surviving structure, your knowledgeable guide will provide historical facts and its interesting background. You'll enjoy a short photo op.

Your transportation will with continue for a 10-minute ride to Parque Independencia where you will receive information about Victorian architecture. Enter the impressive Cathedral and enjoy more photo opportunities. Your total time at Parque Independencia will be 30 minutes. At this point, you'll board your transportation for a 10-minute drive back to Taino Bay, Puerto Plata, and your cruise ship terminal.

Please note that the cable car descent will depend upon the weather. If there are high winds a van, or bus, will bring you back down to the base. Finally, the order of visits may change due to crowds.
