Umbrella Street, Where It Won't Rain on your Parade


If you are in search of colorful shots to post to your social media accounts, Calle San Felipe in Puerto Plata is your place. Between Calle Beller and Calle Duarte (just two blocks from Independence Square), San Felipe has been transformed into another of the world's picturesque Umbrella Streets. If you want to take a break, you can buy a cigar or souvenir, sip on a coffee or beer or enjoy an ice cream treat or other snack on this block long street.

Social Media Description

When you visit a downtown area, do you seek out the past or the present?

We knew that we would see some historical buildings in downtown Puerto Plata, also known as the historic district. The street art and Umbrella Street were pleasant surprises.

After exiting the cruise port, the historic center is a 3/4 mile walk. The most difficult part is getting to the sidewalk while being hounded by taxi drivers and "guides". We almost turned back, but asked a gentleman who appeared to be a port supervisor if we could walk. Once he said that it was "no problem" to go on our own, everyone left us alone and we were on our way.

Would you favor the art and handmade crafts market or the historic church, square and lodge?
