Iberostar Costa Dorada

Puerto Plata is home to sprawling beaches, mountains, valleys, waterfalls, and rivers. Its fertile lands grow coffee and cacao trees. 

It combines historical wonders like 16-century forts, colonial cities, vibrant nightlife clubs, and modern all-inclusive resorts!

Iberostar Costa Dorada is a luxurious family-friendly resort that offers wedding couples and their guests gourmet restaurants, sumptuous suites, live musical performances, hydro-massage pools, on-site shopping centers, and much more.

On the other hand, Costa Dorada’s beautiful sands allow you to immerse yourself in the local culture. And speaking of gold, the historic city of Puerto Plata is home to the San Felippe Fortress, a fort erected in the sixteenth century to protect its occupants from Caribbean buccaneers, otherwise known as pirates! The cultural district of Puerto Plata’s ancient alleys transports you back to the 16th century. These quaint alleyways and strips are home to boutiques, eateries, and buildings with arched halls and beautiful wrought-iron embellishments.

We recommend that wedding couples tie the knot at Puerto Plata’s Colonial Gazebo to honor this cultural duality. This stylish space is surrounded by the local flora of the Dominican Republic and incorporates colonial-style design and accents, creating a one-of-a-kind wedding experience.
