Restaurant Options in Puerto Plata

All-inclusive properties in Puerto Plata offer their guests several restaurants apiece to dine at during their stay, but this doesn't tie guests to only a set limit of options. In fact, it is recommended that guests strike out on their own for at least one meal a day in search of the country's famed comida criolla. The recommended course of action is to travel just a bit outside of "resort row," moving inland from the beach, and there you will find the best locally-owned, authentic cuisine around.

Caribbean and Local

Lucia is a pleasant place you might like. Make a reservation before heading to Lucia, the gourmet Caribbean Fusion spot at Boutique Casa Colonial, where fine fare is a top priority. If you want to call ahead of time, you can do so at (809) 320-3232.
