Voice of Travelers to Puerto Plata

Airfare ticket to Puerto Plata

I visited Puerto Plata last year for my friends wedding. It was a last minute decision, so I looked for a ticket to Puerto Plata first at different ticket portals, but then I went to a ticket agent who finally found the last ticket to Puerto Plata aboard Sunwing Airlines. The ticket indicated that the flight to Puerto Plata will take six hours, but in reality we arrived in Puerto Plata after five years of flight. When I wanted to return earlier and asked my ticket agent to change my ticket for a flight from Puerto Plata earlier, it was sold out. I think Sunwing is a good airline with good prices of a return ticket even if the ticket is purchased last minutes. The service aboard Sunwing was great both on the way to Puerto Plata and back.

Visiting Puerto Plata with an airfare ticket for the first class

I travelled to Puerto Plata on an incentive trip as the representative of our Miami branch of the company I work for. The visit to Puerto Plata was a working vacation. My company booked a direct ticket for me. The ticket was for the business class on the way to Puerto Plata, but for economy from Puerto Plata back home. This must have been an expensive ticket. Transportation was likewise provided in the price of this ticket, and the ticket also allowed me to visit the lounge at Miami airport. The airline service was great - I flew with American Airlines both there and back. I actually wanted to change the ticket on the way from Puerto Plata for two days later but it was not possible. I enjoyed Puerto Plata very much.
