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.
