Area Information
Playa Cofresi is on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, noted for having some of the prettiest beaches in the Caribbean including Playa Cofresi, Playa Dorado, Cabrete, Sosusa & Playa Grande. Playa Cofresi is about 3 miles west of the colorful, historic city of Puerto Plata where you will find tourist sites, shopping and a large farmer's market with abundant fresh produce and lots of local crafts. We are just 15 miles west of the Puerto Plata Int'l Airport (POP) on the north coast. Service is also available from the Santiago Int'l airport (STI) which is approx. 60 miles away or a 1 1/2 hour trip.

Our charming seaside community is home to "Ocean World", the Caribbean's largest and newest interactive marine aquatic park where you swim with dolphins, snorkel in a huge salt water aquarium, watch sea lions perform, or enjoy a wide variety of other activities. "Ocean World Marina & Casino", a 35 acre complex with casino, 5 Star fine dining, full scale marina, and an entertainment club house with spectacular Las Vegas style shows is also open. All this is just a 10 minute walk from the villa.

This is a wonderful destination for any size group because there is so much to see and do, and everything is so inexpensive. Babysitters for children cost $30 for a full day. Wonderful meals at local restaurants start at $10-15 per entree. The Dominican version of 'Cheers' is just down the street at an oceanfront thatched-roof restaurant called Chris & Madys.

You'll find the Dominicans are well-deserving of their reputation for friendliness and hospitality; they go out of their way to make you feel welcome in their country. It doesn't matter if you don't speak Spanish. Guests have always managed and enjoyed the experience of being exposed to the culture of this beautiful country and its people.

So if you want to venture slightly off the beaten path; if you have an adventurous heart and truly enjoy being a part of the country you're visiting, come to Villa Vista del Mar at Playa Cofresi. Just be prepared to relax and enjoy, as you fall asleep to the sound of the ocean and wake up with the songbirds
