My cruise stopped at the Amber cove port, but I'm glad we took a little bit of time to do something fun within the city of Puerta Plata. We got a taxi (van) very easily to the Teleferico Cable Car. It was about 15 minutes away and cost the 3 of us $60 round trip. It was worth it, the driver was very nice and waited for us to finish whenever and drove us back. It was an organized operation with drivers all in the same outfits. You didn't feel like you were getting ripped off. The cable car was a really neat thing to do and only $10. It went up this gorgeous Green Mountain where you had views of the coast and ocean. Once you get up to the top of the mountain there were so many paths you could spend a couple hours walking around if you wanted. It was definitely a workout with lots of hills and steps. There was a snack bar and a sit down restaurant if you wanted to eat, we did not. The shop was a little bit annoying because it was all local people trying to pull you into their place and sell you. Still I recommend going here.
