Our next destination was the Ocean World marina at Cofresi just to the west of Puerto Plata. It had mixed reviews but we had nothing to complain about.
The casino pictured had a brilliant light show each night and we sometimes heard the crowd noise at the aquarium but only during the day.
Our fellow marina users were good fun, especially Fernando in the old US Coast Guard cutter next to us. He was trying to sell it, living aboard with no power and working on it during the day. But a good neighbour and a great help with translations.
