Puerta Plata in the Dominican Republic

Decided to actually go to the Caribbean for an all inclusive vacation and picked the Senator Spa Resort in Puerta Plata and it was gorgeous. We went in late October and it was the perfect weather and in the low tourist season so it wasn't too busy at all. The umbrella alley is pictured above.
We took a guided city tour of Puerta Plata and we got to see a lot of the attractions in the town, famous for bars, gates and barbed wire along with plenty of police, army and navy in the downtown area. From the Amber Museum (above), to the pink alley and the town square all the way up the mountain to the smaller version of Christ the Redeemer statue.

A donkey waits for you to take photos so the owner can ask you for cash

You can see photos of the resort and more of the city after the jump.

The resort really was beautiful, plus you got privileges to the adjacent resort Playabachata Spa Resort. Air Transat is who we used to purchase the all inclusive package, which with one excursion and extra trip protections and upgrades ended up costing approximately $2800 for two people, including all transportation, taxes and transfers.

The cruise port is right beside the edge of the resort and some big ships parked along the dock
There are tiny wildlife on the island, mostly small lizards and little hermit crabs

You can also do excursions like horse riding on the beach (five minutes from the resort)

Part of the city tour at Macorix for rum samples. Bottles in the store are around $10US!
The top cable station at Mount Isabel de Torres for the view and to see the Christ the Redeemer statue
