Focus on tourism in Haiti
Haiti is the special guest at the Caribbean Tourism Bourse this year, which is being held at the Dominican Fiesta Hotel in Santo Domingo from 28 to 30 June. The event showcases travel from all around the world for the Dominican market, and this year tour operators, hoteliers and businesspeople from Haiti will be presenting the neighboring country's attractions at the travel trade show that is open to the general public.
National Geographic calls Samana one of the world's most scenic drives
In its June edition, National Geographic includes Samana's roads among the most scenic drives in the world. The magazine's cover story mentions the route that travels round Samana's Cordillera.
"Just west of town you'll see the junction for El Limon. Head that way, snaking uphill and back and you take in the first fine views of the trip. Los Haitises National Park will appear to be afloat on the hazy horizon, and the coast tantalizes.
"Be on guard for potholes as you head down toward El Limon, where you head north on a dirt road to Playa Moron, an orange-sand beach. Head back to El Limon on your way to Playa Punta Popy, a magnet for kiteboarders. Playa Las Ballenas is the next stunning beach on the route. Park your vehicle, don a snorkel and hit the surf. Stop for grilled seafood at Playa Bonita.
"The final stretch of the trip is a southwest drive that takes you around switchbacks... and over potholes. At Vivero Las Colinas a plant nursery clings to the mountainside. The landscape beyond the village of Los Puentes includes isolated, rounded hills called mogotes. It is downhill - steeply in sections - from here to Sanchez".
