Puerto Plata is the largest coastal town on the north coast of The Dominican Republic and is instantly recognizable by the dramatic 2,600 ft high Peak of Mount Isabel de Torres which can be seen for miles around.
History: Puerto Plata was officially founded and named in 1496 by order of Christopher Columbus, and the name of the city literally translates to port of silver, aptly chosen for the silvery hues of its natural harbor. Puerto Plata’s turn-of-the-century charm is evident in its Victorian architecture. Many of its gracious gingerbread homes date back to the republican period.
Playa Dorada, where Casa Colonial is located, is a 250 acre self-contained resort complex offering travelers the choice of things to do including a shopping mall, discos, casinos, restaurants, and of course the 13 mile beautiful sandy beach of Playa Dorada.
