Puerto Plata fastest growing tourist destination

According to the Minister of Tourism Francisco Javier García, Puerto Plata is the fastest growing tourist destination over the last year in the country. It concerns travelers who use the airports. The minister said that over the last eight months Las Américas International Airport (Santo Domingo) received 1.9% more passengers, Punta Cana 8% more, but Gregorio Luperón (Puerto Plata) saw an increase of 15%. Puerto Plata has been working hard to make the city more attractive to tourists.

The historic town with houses and buildings in Victorian style, has been completely renovated. There is an amphitheater at which regularly nationally known bands and artists perform. There are also interesting excursions to the Amber Museum, Brugal Rum factory and cigar factories. Caused by problems in the Middle East destinations like Turkey, Egypt and Tunisia are less attractive for tourists from Europe. So therefore, the Dominican Republic is now considered as an alternative holiday destination. Because there are also beautiful beaches, clear blue water for water sports and good and affordable dining facilities. Most tourists visiting the country via the airport of Puerto Plata, stay in luxury hotels in Playa Dorada. Sosúa has far less benefit from it. Sosúa urgently needs a major makeover. The desolate street Pedro Clisante with half demolished Rumba Bar and Latin Bar are uninviting.
