"Don't worry - be happy" - that could well be your motto when you take a Dominican Republic holiday from The Co-operative Travel.
And by coming to Puerto Plata, you're stepping off the daily drudge train at relaxation central, with a night-time excursion to fun town thrown in.
Golden sands, clear azure waters and tall palm trees characterise this chilled-out resort. But don't get the idea that it's all about lying back and catching the rays
After a day of some serious sun-catching, you might well be up for some excitement, and Puerto Plata will oblige on that score too, as at night it goes from chill-a-minute to thrill-a-minute.
Many of the residents in the resort's gated complex of quality hotels come out to play in the assortment of bars and nightclubs, which add extra flava to a cocktail that's as full of life and zest as the real things.
Puerto Plata is also a great base for exploring the Dominican Republic's inland cornucopia of verdant mountains threaded with rushing rivers, where you can try your hand at whitewater rafting.
Here you'll also find acres of sugar cane fields which merge into the mangroves and then rise to spectacular mountain peaks. It's the unexpected side of the Dominican Republic, which manages to delight and inspire in equal measure.
Puerto Plata has been called the Dominican Republic's Costa Del Sol. But that means that if you're looking for a package holiday, all-inclusive holiday, or a last-minute holiday deal which will show you all sides of this multi-faceted destination, you'll find it all here.
