Nice building right in the middle of the plaza. The tour group I was with went by this building, while the vendors were upon us trying to sell their wares. Got to walk around it and take pictures in the town square.

We went to Peurto Plata to see colonial square. Victorian Times is in the middle, around nice buildings and cathedral. Good to see the square but it's not something wow. A lot of tour guids who want to sell a tour. In total something different,...More

The square is ok and sometimes an event will be going on. However take a walk around it and then around the surrounding streets to get a feel for the place.

Beautiful little downtown area with impressive architecture and small town feel! Take time to walk around the shops and check out the cigar factory for live demonstrations on how cigars are made!

Right in the middle of the "downtown" area. Not much to do right at this landmark, but a great spot to walk to plenty of shops, restaurants, and other attractions. Statues nearby, coconut vendors, and right next to a beautiful church. We had about 30...More
