Has anyone been to Puerta Plata? Are the beaches nice? Is there any kind of nightlife there?

It's extremely 'local'. The beaches are totally different to the resorts. They are generally awash with litter and usually used by locals for fishing and cleaning the moto taxis.

Puerta Plata is a great location for night life, the Playa Dora complex itself is also great for partying.

However the beaches aren't as nice as Punta Cana or other parts of the Dominican, the beach is a golden colour rather then the white fine sand found in Punta Cana!

just to avoid confusion, yes Playa Dorada complex has plenty nightlife.

I'm referring to the Town itself, which is a couple of km south of the complex.

And yes the beaches in other areas are better as PP & PD are on the Atlantic coast. Still excellent though.

But please be aware of the difference between the town and the holiday complex.

We are going to staying at the Gran Ventana in April do you know if there is lots of night life at this resort or if we have to go far to go out?
