– Local Attractions
Cabarete Caves: Tucked inside the forest of El Choco National Park, Cabarete’s caves reveal an underground network dating back millions of years. Cueva de Cristal rests underground with a fresh water pool, while other caves above ground are filled with stalactites and stalagmites.
El Choco National Park: is located less than 15-minute drive from the beach and the heart of Cabarete. It offers a world of nature for hikes, mountain biking, swimming in fresh water lagoons as well as cave exploration. Stretching 78 square kilometers (30 square miles), numerous hiking trails take you through a lush tropical forest along cacao and coffee trees, medicinal plants, and into partly dry, partly water-filled caves dating millions of years back. Along the way you will find over 30 species of birds, lizards, and bats. There are bilingual guides at the entrance of the park in case you head to the park solo, or you can sign up for organized hike or biking tour with one of the companies in the area providing tours and excursions.
27 Charcos de Damajagua: is Puerto Plata’s crown jewel attraction. It offers a day of hiking through thick forest, crossing footbridges and passing numerous flora before eventually reaching a rocky hilltop where you’ll begin making your way down by jumping or sliding down a series of waterfalls!
