Our All-Inclusive Vacations to Puerto Plata - February 2020

Howard Travel has more than 60 years' experience putting together amazing all-inclusive vacations for Brockville residents and one of our best trips yet is right around the corner!  We're proud to announce that we're now taking reservations for a week-long trip to the amazing and beautiful Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.  

The trip will be from February 14-21, 2020 - so now is the time to make your reservations and prepare for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Experience Puerto Plata With Howard Travel

Puerto Plata is a beautiful stretch on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic, loved by tourists around the world for its beaches and other natural attractions.  We'll be putting you up in the Sunscape Puerto Plata, a stunning 585-room resort that's only about 20 minutes from the airport.  You'll have views of the Atlantic Ocean and plenty to do without even leaving the resort!  It features nine restaurants, seven bars, and an 18-hole golf course.

You could spend your week at the resort and never get bored.

But then, you'd probably be missing out, because the Dominican Republic is gorgeous, filled with culture and history.  There are far too many attractions to list, but some of the most popular destinations include:

  • Fortaleza San Felipe:  This historic Spanish fort was constructed on the main bay in the 1560s, very early in the Colonial period.  It served in numerous battles over the centuries and is now a military museum full of fascinating artifacts.  Today, it's the only piece of original 16th Century construction left in the area.
  • Cristo Redentor:  You don't need to travel to Rio to see Christ The Redeemer.  This replica was constructed on top of Mount Isabel de Torres and is every bit as spectacular as the original.  Plus, the cable car up the mountain offers truly stunning views of the surrounding lands.
  • Charcos de Damajagua:  Also known as the 27 Waterfalls, this is one of the most spectacular natural water features you're likely to find anywhere in the world.  It's a bit of an adventure -and a hike- to get there, but it's almost certainly the most awesome thing you'll do during your time in Puerto Plata!

That's not to speak of the food, the shopping, the people, the music, and all the other amazing local culture.  Your trip to Puerto Plata will be one you'll remember for the rest of your life.

Howard Travel Offers the Best in All-Inclusive Vacations

We put in the hard work, so you don't have to. Howard Travel arranges everything on your behalf including airfare, ground transportation, and even paying your local tourist duties.  But don't forget your passport!  We also provide a representative who knows the area well and can help you arrange most activities.

Why pass up this amazing opportunity?  Contact us today to reserve your own Puerto Plato all-inclusive vacation in February 2020.

Amazing August Vacations from Brockville’s Leading Travel Agency

For families, August is a great time to take a quick vacation!  After all, the kids still have a few weeks before school starts up again and, chances are, they're getting a bit restless.  You can get them out of the house (and maybe even off their smartphones) by taking an affordable vacation from your local Brockville travel agency and have a great time too!

Here are just a few of the August vacation packages Howard Travel has lined up that would be perfect for a quick family vacation or a private little getaway for two.

Granby Zoo Tour - August 10-11

How can you spend an entire weekend just at a zoo?  It's easy when it's Quebec's world-famous Granby Zoo - because it's a zoo, amusement park, and water park all in one!  They have over 1,500 animals - from 225 species - in their massive zoological park.  There's also a full dinosaur exhibit and kids always love dinosaurs.

However, you could also spend time with classic carnival games and rides at their full amusement park or chill out in their "Amazoo" water park with a full selection of thrilling water attractions.  There's truly something at the Granby Zoo for everyone - and a full weekend is only barely enough time to take it all in.

Prince Edward Island Tour - August 22-31

Want to get away from it all?  We're proud to offer a massive 10-day extended trip to beautiful Prince Edward Island.  PEI is one of the most impressive island experiences in all of Canada.  The beaches are beautiful, the seafood is unbelievable, and the golfing is among the best in the world.

You get a spacious room equipped with a kitchenette and, largely, your time is your own.  From coastal drives to the Celtic performing arts troupe, PEI is full of beauty and culture.  It's the perfect antidote to the hectic pace of city life.

Howard Travel Is Your Family-Owned Brockville Travel Agency

We've been a beloved Brockville travel agency since 1955, with a sterling reputation for putting together amazing and affordable vacation packages.  We make things as easy as possible for you, handling all the details so you can just kick back and relax.
