    Long Views and Flowers
    Amazing views and plenty of flowers to spend the whole day viewing. After purchasing my tickets to ride the tram a guide came up to me and tried to convince me to hire him to show me everything at the top for $35. You do not need a guide. They have maps and signage is good. The trails are a bit rough in places. Steep inclines with no rails and broken rocks. But don't let that stop you. Put on your hiking boots and take a beautiful walk thru the Jungle!

    Very cool experience
    This is a really cool experience. You get to ride a cable car up the mountain, and there is really a lot to do at the top. There’s a cave, gardens, restaurant, statue, old time house, etc. it’s a lot of walking on top and plan to spend at least an hour up there. We had a great time and highly recommend.

    Views that never get old!
    The last time I visited this place was like 8 years ago and I can tell that there are improvements to make your experience a better one. Now they have more staff to help you find your way around and answer any questions you may have. The facilities felt cleaner and better organized. The views from the top of the mountain never get old! Up there you can walk through many trails, admire the beautiful vegetation and take nice pictures of the wonderful view of the city of Puerto Plata. There's a gift shop and a small snack bar where you can sit, eat and drink. Prices are good for a tourist place. I would recommend taking a sweater before going up there. Temperatures may drop drastically at any time of the day.

    Awesome tour
    This place is beautiful, ride is terrifying and scary but worth it a warning sometimes power goes out and they have to switch to generators so car stopped and it turned a little we all freaked out and screamed whishing someone told us in advance. Once up there the views and forest, the flowers are awesome. Wear comfortable and non-slippery shoes because it is very humid.

    Amazing Hike
    We initially did not think much of the hike and did not believe we needed a guide, however, quickly realized how grateful I was that we ended up going with one, Domingo. He charged $100 which I initially thought was a bit much but actually ended up tipping him over twice that. He was fantastic 10/10, the hike was beautiful, albeit strenuous, took us about three hours, and had some very steep/overgrown sections. We did come across some beautiful avocados, ?guava?, wildlife, and a wonderfully satisfying arrival at the top. The view was beautiful, the vendors were persistent as they all are in the DR ahah, and the view coming down by the cable car was gorgeous. Best part of my vacation.

    The Teleferico Experience
    Must see when you visit Puerto Plata! Its USD10 per person to ride the cable car that takes you 2600 ft above sea level, at the peak of Isabel de Torres Mountain. You get to see a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean, the shorelines and the cityscape of Puerto Plata. On top of the mountain sits a smaller version of the Christ the Redeemer statue similar to one in Brazil. Im bad for forgetting names but there’s a guy there who owns a souvenir shop up there. He would volunteer to take ypur pics for free and his only request is for you to buy from his gift shop. He takes amazing pics its all worth it. Go to his shop after and buy a piece or two. Quick tip: make sure you know the prices of common souvenirs sold in local shops before you go there, so you know how to make bargain. For example, a bottle of Mama Juana medicinal herbs is only $12 but maybe sold for $30 up there. So if you buy it for $15 from this guy, just think that it already includes his tip for taking your beautiful pics. FYI, Teleferico is handicap accessible.

    Love this place
    Despite my fear of heights, I enjoyed the ride up the cable car, it was such a beautiful view. Once on top of the mountain, it feels like a rain forest and has beautiful scenery, caves and a nature. We enjoyed our 2nd time here just as much as the first.

    Fantastic views, fun ride to the top, and peaceful time in nature
    This was a highlight of our trip. The ride up in the cable car was stunning and the park at the top was beautiful. We could have taken much more time there having and admiring the peaceful scenery. The wait to go on the cable car took a little while due to tour groups and cruise ships but there was musical entrainment and a friendly vibe. Definitely go early to avoid crowds and catch a clear view

    It's a MUST!
    Definitely a must do when in POP - views were amazing. We enjoyed the botanical gardens and lunch at the restaurant onsite. You can even drive up which is a nice option. Be prepared for long wait to get on the cable car.

    A must do!
    A wonderful ride to the top. Very inexpensive, great views, and seemed safe. I just wish they didn't pack as many people in each car. It is very tight shoulder to shoulder which is uncomfortable these days with illnesses abound. Other than that, have fun but allow at least 1 1/2 hours from the time you arrive to the time you get back to the bottom; you may have to wait for a car with room for the return trip.

The ride to the top of the mountain is wonderful, great views of the harbor. You could spend a couple of hours at the top, the botanical gardens are lovely, with more great views. Even on a misty day we enjoyed it!. There was an official looking person next to the ticket sales kiosk ($10 for RT ticket on the cable car) who pitched us $25 tickets and said we’d be asked for more at the top and each “attraction” charged seperately, thankfully we passed on that - some kind of scam, there’s no need to pay extra to see the gardens, small cave or anything else at the top.

We loved seeing the views, the cruise ship down below, and the beautiful flowers. The weather was perfect and we found it very restful. We enjoyed the music in the visitor center and the shops at the top. It was a great trip. $10 each.

In addition to the scammy stores at the top, on my trip on it it broke down for over an hour with me on it! It is clearly poorly maintained when you look at the gondola and materials used. Ride at your own risk. And if/when you get to the top avoid the stores!
