i did the monkey jungle tour it was a long ride but well worth it my son had monkeys jumping off his head! but at the end we found out that the proceeds go the an open dental/health clinic every Saturday for residence for FREE that made it all worth it !

My family and I had so much fun at this port. We went to ocean world, we were able to pet dolphins because we bought the excursion, they wanted to take us on a tour to see all their exhibits but we declined and went to get something to eat, I don't really remember the food, but my fiancé said he had the best hot sauce from there. We ended up checking out their pool which was pretty cool. Then we found their bird exhibit and this was the highlight of our whole trip. We had so much fun there. We were allowed to go in the bird cages and hold the birds, we had parrots put on our shoulders, my 7 year old son and 6 year old nephew held toucans, then we went to a parakeet cage and the workers kept throwing bird seed at us which was awesome because the birds kept flying on to us and just hanging out all over our heads, arms, hands, shoes, 😂 it was so cool!


This was my 2nd time in Amber Cove and I choose not to do an excursion. There is a huge pool with water slides and all sorts of activities to do for free. There is food and beverages available for purchase. The shopping in this port was nothign like the other ports I have been to. I believe only one major store was there and the rest were smaller local products.

The port was nice, friendly people. We paid $80 USD and had a dedicated taxi driver for the day (for a family of four - not bad!). He took us to the Cable Car, to lunch, Central Park, San Felipe Fort, some shopping and an ice cream cone on the way back! This was a great way to actually see Peurto Plata - which was only about a 20 minute drive from the port.
