A panoramic drive through San Marcos Village leads past pretty countryside and up Isabel de Torres Mountain. On the way to the summit, admire the beautiful forest that carpets the landscape below. In fact, this vegetation is known as the Botanical Sanctuary.
The mountain is crowned with the Statue of Christ and is the perfect place to take in a sweeping vista of the whole town. Inhale the fresh, natural air and enjoy the change of temperature -- it's noticeably cooler at the top. Commune with nature on a stroll through the sanctuary to admire diverse flowers and plants from the tropics.
An interesting sightseeing tour takes you into the historical city center. Watch for the Plaza Independencia, San Felipe Cathedral and the colorful Victorian houses around the Plaza and don’t miss the umbrellas street and the Pink Sidewalk for beautiful pictures. Also take a moment to browse into the souvenir shop for nice memories to take back home.
On the way back to the pier, admire the San Felipe Fortress, built in 1564 to protect Puerto Plata from pirates and corsairs.
