Family All Inclusive Puerto Plata Resorts

There are lots of great Puerto Plata resorts that cater to families. The north coast of the Dominican Republic is a perfect choice for a family friendly holiday in the sun. Most resorts are all-inclusive and include your meals, drinks and entertainment.

Your whole family will enjoy hanging out on the beach or at the pool! Many resorts offer kid's clubs with organized activities as well. My kids wanted to go almost everyday they were having so much fun!   Most of the resorts are a bit cheaper than in Punta Cana. The beaches aren`t quite as nice but you will also find more excursions here and at a cheaper rate!
