In the Dominican Republic, everything has a silver lining, especially in Puerto Plata. The port town that was once plagued by pirates now shines as a destination with rhythm, color and soul. Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie or beach bum, Puerto Plata has something in store for you — even if you prefer to look at bugs trapped in ancient amber (yes, seriously, visit the Amber Museum). The flavors of Dominican coffee, rum and mamajuana — the D.R.’s sweet rum and wine concoction will linger on your taste buds until you return to the lush mountain tops and snow-like powdered beaches to experience it all over again.
