Martin Espinal, multitasking dependable tour guide – Explore the Caribbean with Debbie

Destination:  Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

After hearing so many good stories about Martin Espinal of Isaira Tours in Puerto Plata, I decide to ask Martin to be my chauffeur and guide during my exploration of the Northern part of the Dominican Republic.

Before I arrive at my destination, I have regular contact with Martin, his daughter Mairaobi and employee Jami. I am amazed that he always answers my emails within 24 hours, which is very unusual for a Caribbean company. This adds to my all ready high level of confidence in Isaira Tours. My first personal encounter with Martin takes place at the time he picks me up at the Grand Paradise Playa Dorada Resort for a personal tour, passing by all neighborhoods and attractions of Puerto Plata. Martin likes to talk and is very interested in what happens outside his country. There is no moment of silence. Martin takes me from the poorest to the richest parts of town, the market, the Fuerte de San Filipe fortress, the town center with the wonderful central square, Parque Central, and the recently renovated church of San Filipe with Italian stain glassed windows. It is also Martin who has taken me in the following days from Puerto Plata to Sosua, Cabarete and finally to Las Terrenas. Along the way we made all kinds of interesting stops. In Sosua, Martin shows me his latest project: a 3-story apartment complex in a side street near the beach, surrounded by gardens and beautiful villas. The apartments are being rented out by the week and feature video security systems, wireless Internet and some house rules. A very nice alternative to a hotel for those who are looking for an independent place to stay. Martin Espinal is a driven, dependable and entertaining personality who I can recommend to everyone.
