Flights to Puerto Plata Airport
Book a flight to Puerto Plata and discover the Dominican Republic’s most popular holiday haunt.
Our flights to Puerto Plata bring you to the northern part of the Dominican Republic – and a part that’s home to the full deck of tropical cards. Think palms groaning under the weight of coconuts, talc-fine sand and luminous blue sea. It’s no surprise then, Puerto Plata tops the charts when it comes to popularity. Puerto Plata itself is a mish-mash of luxury hotels and Victorian houses, and is the biggest town in these parts. Playa Dorada is hot on its heels as a high-end hideaway – the sands are lined by more luxe All Inclusives than anywhere else on the island.
