A walk through the center of town (Parque Central) will take you to the resplendent white towers of the Church of San Felipe. At about 100 meters on Duarte street you’ll find The Amber Museum. An outstanding example of Victorian architecture, the museum houses a unique collection of valuable Dominican amber. Experts say this amber is known to be the most transparent in the world. Amber is classified as semiprecious and is actually tree sap that has hardened for millions of years, capturing many fossils of plant and insect life. Guided tours in several languages are given Monday through Saturday from 9am to 6pm. The Amber Museum shops offer a full selection of Dominican amber jewelry in Puerto Plata .

La Isabela was established on the northern coast of Hispanola in 1494 by Christopher Columbus and 1500 colonists.
