Things to do

Play, Party, Playa

Maybe you like vacations where every day offers a new experience. Or perhaps you like to get in the groove and turn your vacation into one long party that’s interrupted each day only for a little sleep. Adults-only Viva Wyndham V Heavens is ready to help you play your way.

If you like to turn it up when the sun goes down, we’ve got you covered, with fine dining, drinking, live music and dancing to the latest sounds. Visit one of the nearby Playa Dorada nightspots for some live music. Or get your blood pumping gaming at one of the Puerto Plata casinos just minutes away.

When the sun is shining you can chill all day on the beach, where our waiters will attend to your every need and whim. Or hit the links at the Playa Dorada Golf Course, designed by renowned Robert Trent Jones, Sr. Take off for a day trip excursion, or sharpen your kitchen skills with an on-site cooking or cocktail class.

Challenge the surf in one of our kayaks or boogie boards. Hit the fitness center or round up some friends for a game of beach volleyball. There’s so much to do right here, you might never want to leave the security of the beautiful, chic Viva Wyndham V Heavens grounds.

But that’d be a shame. Because in addition to all we’ve just mentioned, our unique excursion desk can hook you up with exciting day trip adventures, many of which bring you up close to the history and natural wonder of the Dominican Republic’s north coast:
