Self-guided taxi tour

Self-guided taxi tour

Hi,

I'm travelling to Puerto Plata on the 17th of Dec. Looking to hire a taxi for a "tour" of Puerto Plata. Been many times, never off the resort though. As I've seen in this forum, I've contacted the driver Elias about this.

Looking to do/see a few things around the city including the cable car, the Brugal factory, the Central Park, Fort San Felipe, and walk the Malecon and stop at a couple Casetta's for a few drinks. I'm looking for any suggestions of other things to see/do. Not too interested in the Amber museum.

I'm thinking if I can hire Elias to take us from Lifestyles to cable car and Brugal factory (and any other spots you guys might suggest), then drop us off at the Fort and walk to Central Park and along Malecon from there. Whenever we're done, I imagine it's pretty easy to find another taxi to take us back to Lifestyles???

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Matt

Elias will drop you off wherever you want, he's flexible. Haitian Market is worth a stop in addition to your other choices

We fly from Toronto next Sunday (17th) and return home on xmas eve.

I have contacted Elias, and set up a taxi tour. I imagine that on top of paying Elias for our tour, we will have to pay cable car & rum factory admission on our own. Is it better to pay in Dominican Pesos or USD???
