North regions of the country are: Puerto Plata, Sosua and Cabarete, Playa Grande and Cabrera.
Many years ago Puerto Plata used to be the Capital of Dominican Republic and before Punta Cana, it was the most popular tourist destination in the country.
It features many all-inclusive resorts, which are older than the ones in Punta Cana region, however prices for stay in them are much lower + the nature of the Northern region is much more vast and note-worthy.
Having an international airport in Puerto Plata with many scheduled flights from USA and Canada daily arriving, makes travel easy and affordable for you and your guests.
Puerto Plata region is full of attractions, which include snorkeling, sailing, site-seeing, golfing, nature exploration and enjoying nightlife.
We are able to decorate weddings in most hotels in the Puerto Plata region, however the travel costs for our team should be kept in mind, when choosing only the decor package, or a small elopement package with us. Puerto Plata is 5 hours away from Punta Cana, where Val's Weddings headquarters are located.
Cabarete is a small, laid-back beach village, neighboring Sosua, located only 20 minutes away from the Puerto Plata International Airport. It's a perfect combination of relaxed and adventurous lifestyles. Most popular activities are kiteboarding and windsurfing, mountain-biking, cascading and just about any other active sport. Cabarete nightlife including bars, clubs, restaurants and lounges is truly legendary.
Sosua and Cabarete offer many options for villas and restaurants, as well as stunning beaches where the wedding ceremony and the reception can take place.
Playa Grande and Cabrera are located 1,5 hours away from Puerto Plata all-inclusive hotels and the international airport. Playa Grande features one of the most amazing golf courses in the entire Caribbean, as well as some magazine-worthy luxury villas. Cabrera is one of the most exclusive areas with an enormous variety of large luxury villas, suitable for any size of wedding.
For groups with large number of guests, who don't want to travel far, the guests can stay in the Grand Bahia Playa Grande Resort.
