Puerto Plata Umbrella Street is part of a worldwide trend of charming, colorful promenades where visitors get an assortment of the best a city can offer, from exciting cafés (such as El Rincón del Café) where we get to taste an impressive selection of organic Dominican coffee from small local producers; or a Natural Ice Cream right next door to it, when you fancy a sweet treat.

Also places such as Vitts, a chic café bar with an exquisite bar and menu to share with best friends and family. Bar 1920 is also another interesting spot you can’t miss when you visit Puerto Plata Umbrella Street. The patio at Vitts has the classy style of the old buildings in Umbrella Street, which is part of the Puerto Plata Historic Center. It is located right across the Rincón Del Café.
