If you’re looking for something different, take a sightseeing excursion that lets you see the Caribbean from a cable car, enjoy mountaintop gardens and explore the city of Puerto Plata.

You’ll meet your guide outside of your Taino Bay cruise terminal gates. As you’re driven to the base of Mount Isabel de Torres, the looming mountain with its iconic statue, your guide will give you the history of the country and the city. The mountain is about 2.5 miles from the city within the Isabel de Torres National Park. Here you’ll be taking the Caribbean’s only cable car up the mountain. As you wait to board, you’ll be treated to the music of the Dominicans to get you in the island spirit.

As you ascend the 2,600 feet (793 meters) to the top, you’ll have spectacular views of the green jungle, the sparkling Atlantic Ocean with its white sandy beaches and the city below. Dominating the mountain top is the statue of Christ the Redeemer, a smaller version of the famous one in Rio de Janeiro. The mountain top is also home to botanical gardens where you’ll have a chance to stroll among the local flora, past the many caves, and enjoy the natural biodiversity of the area.  The gardens have a variety of animals and birds such as the palmchat, woodpecker and Cuban kite. You’ll then take the cable car back down.

Your next stop is in the historic center of town also known as San Felipe de Puerto Plata. There will be time to take some quick photos outside the fortress, Fort de Felipe, which was built by the Spaniards to protect the city from pirates. You will also have a photo stop at Long Beach, where the statue of Neptune, situated on a small island just off the shore, protects the sea. The city was completely burned to the ground in 1863 and 2 years later they started to rebuild. There’s a strong Victorian influence as the country had diplomatic ties to England and Queen Victoria.

In the Victorian district of town, you’ll have time to view the Puerto Plata cathedral, which has a great religious value to the Dominicans. Built with 2 large towers, 12 huge columns inside and beautiful stained-glass windows it’s an impressive building. You’ll then have free time afterward to wander the district and maybe have some food and drink, take a walk in Central Park with its gingerbread Victorian gazebo or people-watch from a bench in the shade.

At the end of your day, you'll board again your air-conditioned transportation and return to your Taino Bay cruise terminal.
