Read MoreShow Less
Mt. Isabel de Torres is located near Puerto Plata and overlooks the region’s coastal strip. Also called Mt. Isabel de Torres, this scenic mountain is home to the only aerial tramway in the Caribbean. The cable car, or teleférico in Spanish, brings visitors up 2,555 feet (778.8 meters) while offering spectacular views down to the city and surrounding waters. The ride takes approximately five to seven minutes. It is recommended that you visit in the morning, as early as possible; the afternoon is prone to heavy cloud cover and you might find yourself at the top of Mount Isabel de Torres with no views at all.
Mt. Isabel de Torres' peak offers impressive views of the Dominican Republic. Atop the mountain, there is a replica of the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue found in Brazil. The statue sits atop a big dome, which houses stores selling jewelry and other souvenirs.
The mountain is also home to a botanical garden. Wander the paths to admire the tropical plants and surrounding scenery. If you are hungry, there is a full-service restaurant and snack shack at the Isabel de Torres’ peak as well.
Wear proper walking shoes if you want to explore Isabel de Torres Mountain. You have the option of taking the aerial tram both ways or taking the car up and walking down. You can skip the cable car altogether and drive up one of two roads. Isabel de Torres and the aerial tramway are open for visitors daily.
