Apple Vacations adds Michigan flights
Apple Vacations has added weekly nonstop flights to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, from Lansing Capital Regional International Airport in Michigan starting 23 December 2011. The seasonal flight will end 6 April 2012. The Friday morning flights are on Sun Country Airlines.
Punta Cana's appeal to mid-western travelers is in its beaches, modern and luxurious resorts, its golf courses and water sports, and the charms of Dominican culture.
Apple Vacations is the world's largest vacation company serving the Dominican Republic, operating 850 exclusive vacation flights annually from US cities throughout the East, Midwest and Texas, in addition to nationwide scheduled airline service.
Belize & DR tourism agreement
The tourism ministers of the Dominican Republic and Belize have signed an agreement to exchange experiences in tourism, strengthen bilateral agreements, technical and economic cooperation, joint implementation of eco-touristic projects and sustainable tourism. The agreement was signed by Tourism Minister Francisco Javier Garcia Fernandez for the Dominican Republic and Tourism, Aviation and Culture Minister Lindsay Garbet for Belize. Garcia said that the agreement was of importance to both countries. He said that Belize has valuable experience in the handling of cruise ship traffic as the DR has in resort tourism.
Wellness at Viva Dominicus
The new EcoWellness Program at Viva Wyndham Dominicus in La Romana is getting good reviews. A report in a New York newspaper praises that an all-inclusive resort offer directed exercise inside and outside of the pool and a separate healthy food station at a low additional cost. "You can have your vacation, and eat well and exercise, too," says writer Charlene Peters of the GateHouse News Service.
The review concludes that "you'll leave your vacation with less carry-on baggage in your tummy. No fried plantains here, nor bread or dessert, but lots of fresh vegetables, steamed vegetables and proteins that are rationed out by use of a specially-designed plate that illustrates where and how much of the plate is designated for raw, cooked vegetables and protein. You'll be satiated, for sure, but on sauteed white fish, calamari, broccoli, carrots and salad - all deliciously prepared."
At the start of the program, participants are given a fat percentage and weight evaluation program, and then Boot Camp begins. There are exercise programs in the morning and afternoon. The second one is held in the pool.
Gol to increase flights
Gol, the largest low-fare and low-cost airline in Latin America, is adding two more frequencies to its three-times a week flight using the Varig brand from Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo in Brazil via Caracas, Venezuela to Punta Cana for the summer. The Punta Cana resort market is becoming increasingly popular with Brazilians. So far, 22,435 Brazilians visited in the first four months of the year, up 125% compared to 2010. Passenger demand both from Brazil as from Venezuela has kept strong for this route leading to the increase in service.
Santo Domingo rated tops on MasterCard Index
Santo Domingo is the second top 10 Destination City by International Visitors (2011) on the MasterCard Index of Global Destination Cities released June 2011. Mexico City is first. The others are San Jose, Caracas, Bogota, Quito, Lima, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paolo and Buenos Aires. SD is also second to Mexico City in visitor spending.
