UPDATE: Amber Cove is Open, OCTOBER 6th
The Caribbean’s newest cruise port opens on a beautiful day with the arrival of Carnival Victory!
Located just outside the historical town of Puerto Plata, on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, this expansive project is expected to provide a significant boost to tourism in the region.Tourism currently drives seventy percent of the local economy and the area last saw cruise ships in the mid-1980s, when a nearby Puerto Plata cargo port hosted the 460-passenger Boheme.
The winter Sunseekers are long gone, Spring Break too, but if you thought we rolled up the sidewalks in the Caribbean summer heat and humidity, think again! Our North Coast tradewinds freshen the air all summer long in Cabarete and Sosua, where European visitors especially escape the oppressive heat and humidity of Europe's summer.
UPDATES!! See updates in blue-- several new Summer Camps for Kids ... and more.
1-July-15 NEW JULY UPDATES: in green
April 23 – May 4, 2015brings a Bohemian, free-spirited, and open-minded event, where any type of artist can bare his or her soul among thousands of people. The 18th Int’l Book Fair, XVIII Feria Internacional del Libro (FILRD15), is a great place for poets, playwrights, pianists, essayists, painters, anyone and everyone inspired by artistry.
In the Dominican Republic you won't find only bats flying around, but also Batman. The actor, Christian Bale, who plays Batman, enjoys the North Coast. What a joy to have such a successful actor, who has won an Oscar, Golden Global Award, and a SAG, visit the adventure park, Laguna Dudu. The day Batman was ziplining, everyone was excited to have him there, maybe thinking: "if Batman can do it, so can I." And if not, like the superhero he is, Batman would be there to save the day.

Due to the fall you must take into the lagoon, there is only a large triangular area in which you can land safely; if you forget to let go in this designated area there's a strong chance of hitting solid rock. We would call this extreme ziplining! However, Batman was in good hands...
