Located in the town of Imbert, Puerto Plata, the famous 27 Pools of Damajagua are a true natural wonder.

Winters in the Caribbean sun

The temperature doesn’t exceed 28 degrees Celsius, the sea is lukewarm and the waves just right for lovers of water sports to feel they have reached their paradise; the sand surrounds the bare feet of visitors who, little by little, are finding their yearned-for location of relaxation, a town which takes to the street after a period of hurricanes and storms. Fleeing the cold to the Caribbean during the winter months is all this and much more. Some Caribbean countries have practically the same temperatures all year round, but during the summer the thermometers can reach 40ºC and even 50ºC…
