We also visit the Cable Car (teleferico) Located on the top of Mount Isabel (2555 feet or 855 meters above sea), this cable car offers you the beautiful panoramic ocean view and surrounding areas of Puerto Plata.
On top of the mountain you will find botanical gardens, a statue of Christ (similar to the one in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), in addition, of course, to the breathtaking views of Puerto Plata and the surrounding ocean.
The Fuerte San Felipe (San Felipe Fort) is located on a small peninsula on the Bahia de Puerto Plata, the bay Columbus once had such high hopes for. The Fort is, in fact, the only vestige of Puerto Plata's colonial past. You’ll be able to look in on a small historical museum, and the tiny cell in which the hero of the Independence movement, Juan Pablo Duarte, was briefly confined.
