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.

“Teleferico tour (cable car)”
Reviewed March 1, 2010

The Teleferico tour up to Mount Isabel de Torres summit is worth every few dollars it costs. The view over Puerto Plata and surrounding area is quite impressive. The cable car ride is spectacular and very smooth.

“Great city and ocean views.”
Reviewed February 6, 2010

If you're planning a trip when on your Puerto Plata vacation,be sure to put Teleferico on the top of the list.For a roundtrip cable car ride of $10.00 USD.It's well worth it!!Spectacular views of the entire city of Puerto Plata and surrounding areas.Many pathways through lush green forest and a large statue of Jesus overlooks it all.There are a few small gift shops and a very nice Restaurant at the peak.Be sure and take your time to explore around and don't rush yourself as there are many paths and trails.From the Playa Dorada complex I was able to get a pretty good deal in a very nice Air conditioned cab,Trip from the Playa Dorada to Teleferico then a ride to Tienda La Sirena( a store similar to Wal Mart) A total of approx.$50.00 USD for almost 5 hours of Taxi time.Amazing...Of course that didn't include the tip which I gave $20.00.Heres the information of the cabbie who I used.Taxi Playa Dorada ,Robert Cantizano Cell [--] or [--].Robert speaks both Spanish and English so communication is a breeze.He's usually stationed at or near The Blue Bay Villas Doradas in the Playa Dorada complex.I hope you all have a great time!!!!

“AWESOME EXPERIENCE! Worth the time and very cheap. GREAT VIEWS!”
Reviewed September 24, 2009

We were a little weary when we got to the teleferico because it goes sooo high up, but once we started the ride we felt very safe.
Aside of it being really cheap (like $3US) it was totally worth it! The views are spectacular! Your taken away by the beauty of the island. You really get so see how green the island is and how beautiful the beach and waters are. Pictures don’t do it justice, just go, you'll love it.
Once your up there, there’s tons of things to do. The guy told us we could spend an entire day and not see everything, and he was right. We were there about 3 hrs and we went around about half of the top. We saw plants, flowers, caves, little animals, and many more things.
I highly recommend it, even if you just go up and down the teleferico. It’s very easy to drive there. Its right off the main road. When you get out of the airport, go right, and keep going on that same road until you see a big blue sign with a girl welcoming you to the Teleferico on the right side.

“Video Clip of the Teleferico at Mt Isabel De Torres”
Reviewed November 8, 2004

If staying on the north coast, taking a cable car or "teleferico" ride to the top of My Isabel De Torres, is a great way to spend a few hours. The view is very nice from both the cable car and the top of the mountain.

I shot video of the trip and posted it online


We made a day of visiting the Old Fort, Fortaleza San Felipe and then taking the cable car ride. The line can be long at times but is definitely worth it!
