Dominican Republic- Puerto Plata

Puerto Plata’s Lifestyles Holiday Resort in Dominican Republic is like a small city in and of itself. People live there. They retire in paradise and never leave. Personally, I could never handle staying in one place. When I retire it will be to travel and expand my mind to new places constantly. Dominican Republic was an experience I will never forget on my journey traveling the world

Although some towns celebrate it during March, Holy Week, and August, the Carnival in the Dominican Republic is celebrated throughout the entire month of February. The festival usually climaxes around February 27th, which is the Dominican Independence Day.

Fortaleza San Felipe is a historic Spanish fortress located in the north of Dominican Republic in the province of Puerto Plata. Is also known as El Morro de San Felipe and was used to protect the City of Puerto Plata from pirates and corsairs.[1] It is located on a hill at the Puntilla Del Malecón, overlooking theAtlantic Ocean; its strategic location protected the entrance to the city’s seaport. The construction of the fort was commissioned by King Felipe II of Spain in 1564, and it was completed in 1577 by Don Rengifo de Angulo, the fort’s mayor.
