“Ambar Museo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

When I traveling I love to educate myself while having fun. Before I leave New York I did some research about Puerto plata and the attraction that were located in the surronding. I was please with the visit to the Ambar Museo. It's a few minutes away from del centro you can go by walking from del centro or just take the motor bike. to vise the museo the fee is 50 pesos so I believe it's less then $4. It's not long it's a vrey small musuem and trust me you will love it.
PS: I took a lot pictures from the musuem to show to my friend they loved it.

“You get a private tour”

I've always been intrigued by amber and the displays tell you what you would want to know. Who knew that having insects caught in the amber made the piece more expensive!
