AA increases flights for December

AA has 5 customer service locations in the country, and operates from five international airports: Puerto Plata, Punta Cana, La Romana, Santo Domingo and Santiago.
World Travel Market hailed as success
Yesterday the World Travel Market came to a close and 17 Dominican hotels that took part came home happy. According to Diario Libre, the United Kingdom's main tourism fair was a success for Dominican businesses that made contacts with some of the major European tour operators. The 17 companies representing the Dominican Republic included hotels, tour operators, tourist service providers and travel agents. According to the vice president of sales for Casa de Campo in La Romana, they reached agreements with more than 15 tour operators, including a golf tournament in 2011. Punta Cana Group executive Alberto Abreu said that operators from Denmark and Sweden were among the tourists from non-traditional countries who made plans to visit the DR. The golf courses in the east were a big draw, according to the newspaper. Representatives from 187 countries took part in the World Travel Fair.
Adrian Tropical Christmas
It's a Green Christmas at Adrian Tropical restaurants with the launch of a booklet on Latin American and Dominican Christmas traditions. Visitors to the restaurant this week and especially on weekends in the Christmas season may receive a "Green Christmas" collection of poems on Christmas by Salome Urena, Fabio Fiallo and Ruben Dario, among others. The booklet also includes Dominican recipes and a coloring book section for the children. Marketing director Pedro Amoros says that the initiative seeks to tell Dominicans and visitors what is different about the Dominican celebration of Christmas. Christmas music plays at the Dominican food restaurant and special combos of "pollo a la puya" and "cerdo a la puya" are served on Fridays. But there will also be Christmas specials every day: stewed pheasant, grilled pork chops and tropical conch, all served with a Presidente beer.
Kin Sanchez, editor of the booklet, said their aim is for Dominicans to value their own culture. He explained the collection of traditional songs. "Before being global, we have to be national and not lose our own identity," he said. In the process of researching the booklet they discovered that many great Latin American writers had covered the story of Christmas, "the most beautiful story in the world."
If you do not get a complimentary booklet with your menu, ask the waiter for a copy.
