BEACH

The Costambar gated community has over a mile of expansive white sand beach – a 10 minute walk from Casa Lóase. If you do not wish to walk, local taxis are available for a nominal price. If you want to have a real experience, locals travel around Costambar on Motoconchos (Motorcycle Taxis) For less than $1, they will take you anywhere you want to go in Costambar.

CASINOS

There are two excellent casinos in the area. The newest casin is located at Ocean World, located at Cofresi Beach about 10 minutes from the villa. In addition to regular casino facilities, they also have a weekly Texas Holdem Tournament. They have an excellent show and one of the best restaurants on the North Coast featuring an all you can eat prime rib and lobster dinner. The second recommended casino is located in the Playa Dorada complex and is about 15 minutes away.

DISCOS

Puerto Plata offers a widely varied and exciting nightlife. Mangu (an American style disco) is located in the Playa Dorada Complex about 15 minutes from the Villa. There are also several great Dominican Discos that should not be missed. This is an excellent opportunity to experience the true Dominican culture. Gringos are always welcome at these local discos.

FOOD / RESTAURANTS

Casa Loase is walking distance to convenience shopping and restaurants. Modern supermarkets in historic Puerto Plata, a bustling seaport city with its own economy – not tourist driven – are a 10 minute drive.

FISHING

Deep sea charters leave Puerto Plata harbor every morning for half days. Small boats with guide can be rented at Sosua beach, a 30 min. drive. Luperon is another place where fishermen can be hired.

GOLF

Costambar beach and Los mangos golf

Costambar has a challenging 9 hole executive course that is scenic and fun to play for approx. $10. A Robt. Trent Jones course is 15 min. drive to the Playa Dorada hotel complex; and the serious golfer also definitely will want to play the RTJ course at Playa Grande where 10 holes border the ocean cliffs. The apt reference “Caribbean Pebble Beach” says it all.

HORSEBACK RIDING / TOURS

Easily arranged by phone. All kinds include jeep ours, white water rafting, mountain bikes.

MUSEUMS / SIGHTSEEING / SHOPPING

40 million year old specimens encased in tree sap are displayed at the Amber Museum in Puerto Plata. See the old fort at the harbor and visit the place where Columbus landed to establish the first settlement – a beautiful 1 1/2 hr. drive. Consider a “Metro” bus trip to the Santo Domingo capital where Columbus era buildings are toured in the Colonial Zone. The surprisingly comfortable 4 hour trip will occupy your every moment as you get a close look at a beautiful land and villages that dot the way. Make it an overnight. A must for most shoppers is a ring, necklace or bracelet of larimar, a lovely blue stone found only in the DR. Also a favorite is the yellow DR stone, amber, set in gold or silver.

SNORKELING / SCUBA

Sosua is the place for this. You can take a catamaran excursion or drive directly to the beach or we can arrange everything for you including a bilingual dive master.
