Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

You know what I love about cruising? Your resort travels with you as you visit different ports! No unpacking and moving, it just goes with you! One of the ports during our Virgin Voyages Dominican Daze cruise was stopping at the tropical, sunny and warm Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic. Now listen I’m not complaining about tropical in the middle of winter! Virgin Voyages has a variety of shore trip excursions which you can easily book before or during your cruise on their Virgin Voyages app! We selected the jungle buggy ride!

Simply click and book! On the day of your port day make sure you get off the ship at least an hour before your scheduled adventure. Virgin Voyages reps were waiting for us as we got to the Puerto Plata.

There are plenty of signs to show you the way. And just look for the Virgin reps in the nautical V shirts.

Make sure you read the description on your excursion details so you know exactly what to wear, how long you’ll be gone and what to expect.

You’ll have a shuttle to get you there!

Our excursion took us to a cute little shop area where we got to see cigars being hand rolled.

Then we loaded up and rode through the jungle!

After our jungle ride we went to a private beach and soaked in the sun!

Once our time was up our shuttle took us back to the port and we hopped back on the ship. Super easy. The excursions are definitely a memorable part of any cruise!
