A Warm Welcome at Taino Bay Cruise Terminal


Formerly a cargo pier, the Taino Bay Cruise Terminal was expanded to simultaneously accommodate two of the largest cruise ships in operation plus one smaller ship. The first cruise ship passengers were officially welcomed to phase one of the port in mid-December 2021. Future phases planned for the terminal include street entertainment, a theme park, water park, lazy river and zip line.

Social Media Description

What cruise ports/terminals have you been the most impressed with?

We were impressed with all that Puerto Plata's new Taino Bay Cruise Terminal has to offer. A stroll through the nicely landscaped complex took us past a duty free shop and a Diamonds International (of course) plus numerous other retail shops, restaurants and bars. Shops were housed in glass buildings with straw roofs and were all new and very clean. Many are owned by island locals, some with handcrafted items, and the prices were quite reasonable.

What looks like a nicely landscaped beach resort with a large pool, swim-up bar, pool-side loungers and umbrellas is a beach club. We searched for the club entrance or signage with the day-use fee to no avail. We finally asked and were quite surprised to learn that entrance to the club was free!

Is there a cruise terminal that you have been amazed by?
