The Los Mangos Golf club is a nice place to play golf and is not open to the public. For those who want sunshine, inexpensive real-estate, and a decent golf course: this could be the option for you.
One of the benefits of Puerto Plata is also the fact that you can get service-level personnel at a very reasonable rate. Whether you need someone to clean your pool, or move some things around in your backyard: you’ve got a good chance of finding someone to do that here at an amazingly low-rate as compared to the US or Canada.
