Owner description: The Cable Car Puerto Plata is located on the Mountain "Isabel de Torres", south of the beautiful city of Puerto Plata. At the top of the mountain, above a fortress is the statue of "Christ the Redeemer" with open arms gives the welcome to visitors. Take your photo with Christ, he put his hand on the head! During the visit they will enjoy wonderful views of the ocean and city, as well as beautiful gardens, since the mountain has been declared a Scientific Reserve for the wide variety of animal and plant species are found in it. And if you keep your eyes peeled, you can discover hidden caves that lead to springs and streams that flow into the mountain! While in Puerto Plata, do not miss the cable car, with its exotic natural beauty and extensive National Park.

“amazing view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

Trsm to top is only 10 minutes, but trsm is very crowded - 20 people standing shoulder to shoulder. But it is worth it. The view is amazing.

“Cable Car”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Great trip up the mountain in the cable car. A ten minute ride up the cble car and you are 800m above sea level. The scenery on the way up and also while you are there is breathtaking. Some vendors selling the same up top as well.

“Day trip to Teleferico, Puerto Plata, from Playa Dorada”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

I had been to Puerto Plata a couple years ago but did not have the opportunity to visit the Teleferico. We had a great day trip from Playa Dorada on March 1, 2014. We took a local C guagua from the Playa Dorada area and walked up the hill to the Teleferico cable car station. Guides will try to join you when entering the building but if you are not interested just say so. You sit in an air conditioned area and are entertained by local musicians while waiting for the cable car. The price is $10. US. The ten minute cable car ride over the mountainside to the summit of Pico Isabel de Torres is amazing. We had a clear morning and the views were amazing of the mountain, Puerto Plata, the coastline and the ocean!! At the top there is a large statue of Christ the Redeemer which is similar to the one in Rio de Janeiro. There is a path you can follow through the forest with great views, a cave and a pond. The gardens are beautiful and there is a gift shop and restaurant available if you are interested. It is a great place to take photos.

“Nice outing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

Go in the am as it is often cloudy in the afternoon. Pretty gardens that they are trying to get back in better order. Just a nice time for scenery and a walk in the gardens.

“Breathtaking views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

I have been coming to puerto plata for years and this was the first time I braved my way up the mountain. It is well organized and safe( which was my worry). It's a cheap outing - 16 dollars or 700 pesos to have a return trip up and down the mountain. We have a vehicle so just drive there. Once at the top it is simply beautiful. There is a cave and a lagoon up there and many photo ops. Dosent take all day so there is still time to go to the beach!! Enjoy
