Remodeling at SDQ and POP airports
Dominican airport management authority Aerodom has announced plans for the total remodeling of the south terminal of Las Americas in Santo Domingo and of Puerto Plata international airports.
General Manager Raul Berroeta said that the works, which will begin in May, would not affect operations. He said that the remodeling process is expected to take 18-24 months.
At Las Americas the south terminal will receive a new facade, new airline counters, duty free area, and new offices for government entities and private and security organizations. The contract for the remodeling program was awarded to Constructora Frank Ortega y Asociados and Armenteros y Asociados.
Marina Casa de Campo gets an A
The Marina at Casa de Campo has received an excellent review from a user who chanced by the south coast. In his experience, the La Romana marina excels in price and customer service compared to many others in the Caribbean.
Captain Don Montgomery and The Admiral Lana Nelson are on a Caribbean tour that included a stopover at La Romana.
