Amber Cove is one of my favorite Caribbean ports of call located in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. My last visit was December 2017 with Carnival Splendor. Just off the pier you’ll find 30 acres of waterfront property complete with shopping and a sprawling pool encompassing a kiddie waterpark, beautiful waterslides, a zero entry area and many other places to swim, play or wade. There is a covered bar and grill, zip lining and kayak rentals alongside the pool. For those with a larger budget, there are lovely cabanas at the water’s edge as well as hammocks.
