Mundo King Art Museum is a five-story castle built by an eccentric German artist who called the place home until his death in 2018. Today, the building acts as a museum as the artist spent the later years of his life filling the castle with art pieces themed around aliens and UFOs as well as many pieces of authentic Haitian works.
Puerto Plata is the capitol city of the province with the same name and is very close to Cabarete. The city has an abundance of resorts and beaches which is what the area is famous for, but it also has a lot of historical sights to see as well. You can head to Fortress of San Felipe to see an authentic defensive fortress built in the late 1500s to help defend the city from pirates. You can also pay a visit to Plaza de Independencia, a park built in the 1800s when Puerto Plata was the acting capitol of the Dominican Republic.
Sosua has a fascinating landscape that should be seen and admired by everyone who visits the area, and what better way to do just that than by horseback?
