About This Trip

Puerto Plata is a true paradise retreat. Surrounded by swaying palms and fringed by a white powder beach, you will think your break to the Dominican Republic could not be more beautiful, and then we turn it up to 11!

 

The Playabachata Resort and Spa is a little slice of heaven on earth. The immaculately designed 5-star resort is spread over a large stretch of beachfront property, separated by lush vegetation and verdant trees. Take to a four-poster beach bed to laze in front of the sparkling Caribbean Sea, a freshly created cocktail discreetly placed on the table beside you by the incredible staff. With the option to party the night away at beachside merengue parties, or escape to a quiet corner, the Playabachata is the resort of your dreams. 

 

And then the beauty amps up. We whisk you off on a couple of outstanding activities, allowing you to explore beneath the surface, to discover places where most visitors don’t venture. You will hike through deep rainforest to discover the extreme beauty of the Damajagua Waterfalls, a series of 12 waterfalls, with a stunning natural pool at the final one. We take you to Cayo, where you escape to a tiny island ‘La Isla Bonita’ where you can snorkel in the shallow waters and be surrounded by a dazzling array of colourful fish. You will also enjoy a day of local artisan culture, exploring the delightful cigars, chocolate, cheese, coffee and sugar created by the local communities. 

 

Every day you wake in paradise, every night you go to sleep to the sound of the gentle sea, thinking about the beauty that has packed your day.

highlights

The Dominican Republic is absolutely packed with places to see and things to do, however, there is definitely some that are more popular than others. With this trip, we wanted to get off the beaten track a little and explore some of the more hidden natural and cultural wonders of this spectacular island. And, of course, we wanted it all to be enveloped in 5-star luxury, because, you know, why not!

 

We focus on natural beauty for the first couple of days because there is such an abundance of it on this stunning island that we wanted to show it off. Again, we don’t just opt for the tourist favourites, we have scoured the Dominican Republic for the local’s favourite getaways and found that the Damajagua Waterfalls and Cayo region rank so highly. Incredibly beautiful, quieter than most other places and you do get that feeling that you have discovered a little secret paradise.


location

One of the many joys of this trip is the location. Based in one place, you are returning to your spectacular all-inclusive resort every day to soak in the magic of paradise. Arriving at Puerto Plata Airport, we will collect you from the arrivals hall and transfer you straight to the resort. Each day we will collect you and take you on your excursions and your driver will return at the end of the trip to match up with your onward flight. 


facilities

We have chosen the Playabachata 5-star Resort and Spa for many reasons. Its incredible beauty and impeccable level of service are only slightly overshadowed by the sheer amount of facilities in the resort.
