Puerto Plata: Dominican Republic – Ron Macorix Rum, Cigars, and Mofongo The Dominican Republic is known for great beaches, resorts, and golf courses. So when the weather in New York City turned cold, I decided to head down to the small city of Puerto Plata on its north coast. There are forts and museums to explore, but what I wanted was to try the cusine and of course some local rum. So after some coffee at a local museum, I made my way to the Ron Macorix Rum Factory. I had never had this brand, so I made sure to tried all their flavors. For lunch I had to go for Mofongo at Dona Pula, which is one of my favorite dishes. And I ended my day with some more rum and also some cigars at Vivonte. I cant wait to return to the Dominican Republic and make more videos!
