If you prefer mountain trails, then you can reach the volcano Rincon de la Vieja by bike trhough hidden waterfalls and a dense rain forest.


You go up on the mountainside through the dense rainforest, make a brief stop to cool off in a fascinating waterfall where the pure waters spring from the volcanic rock. Ride through cattle herds in open field, cross rivers, enjoy the incredible view of the green valley and the Pampa.

The volcano downhill is so much fun guaranteed. Not too dificult even for inexperienced.

Safety recommendations

We higly recommend to have the right equipment like gloves, helmet, etc.

Maybe you need to take enough water and food in case there is nowhere on the route where you can buy them.

Keep yourself visible (safety vest, bicycle lights, etc.).

Do not travel alone. It’s better to travel in a group to avoid problems but forming a line one after another.

Check the bike before leaving.  

Maintain a safe distance from vehicles and always be careful.

It could be a good idea having an insurance.

Very soon we’re going to offer to our guests, a bike renting service. Get in touch with us if you want more information and subscribe to stay updated.

Costambar Renovated Bathroom

We want to entroduce, with this article, our modern renovated bathroom.
Renovating a room seems a simply thing, but it could become a little complicated without the right skills, and even more complicated if your apartment is in the Dominican Republic. In fact, the lack of knowledge of the majority of the professionals, in the Dominican Republic, could cause bad surprises. The suggestion is to keep always an eye on them.
We started with a project, then we looked for materials and accessories, selected professionals and finally started the work.
During the initial phase of the project, tiles should have been glass tiles and the colors gray and green. Unfortunately, when we started to look for the materials, we had difficult to find glass tiles so we had to opt for ceramic tiles in gray and violet. This is the result:

 

The reason why we wanted glass tiles is because the glass reflect objects and the room appears bigger. Anyway the ceramic tiles we bought, give almost the same effect because they are gloss tiles.

After that, we changed the toilet bowl, the shower tray as well the sink.
The toilet bowl is an all-in-one dual flush, we bought it at Ceramihogar in Santo Domingo.

The floor-level shower tray has an elegant and modern shower column and a “walk in shower” glass panel.

The shower tray and the glass panel both have been bought at Carabela in Santiago de los Caballeros.

Finally, the Italian branded Catalano ceramic sink, is equipped with led mirror, an ultra modern faucet and a handmade wood top.

Other suppliers are Ochoa for shower column, Baccessory for the sink, La Iberica for the beautiful floor.
What are you waiting for? Enjoy Puerto Plata with our modern renovated bathroom!
