Orchid exhibition at the Botanical Gardens
The National Botanical Garden of Santo Domingo, the largest of its kind in the Caribbean, is one of the city's leading tourist attractions. This month's annual orchids contest makes the timing even better for a visit. The Dominican Orchidology Society presents its 41st exhibition "Orchids in the Enchanted Forest" and the 31st National Orchids Contest on 7, 8, 9, 10 March at the National Botanical Garden. Open every day, 8am to 6pm.
Wind farm becomes tourist attraction
Generating enough power to keep a million light bulbs alight, or to illuminate 100,000 households, the 40 giant turbines at the Parque Eolico Los Cocos have become the latest tourism attraction in the southwest. The park is open for organized visits, where guides provide an explanation about the operation of the wind farm in a one-hour tour.
Using creativity, the wind farm has opened new opportunities for the community, in creating arts and crafts souvenirs with wind farm motifs including wooden models of the windmills.
On 6 April, the Second Mountain Bike Tour Juancho-Los Cocos will take place, organized by EGE Haina and the Dominican Cycling Federation (Fedoci). The tour will go through the wind farm, Juancho and Playa Los Cocos. To participate, call 809 565-5209, or email them at [email protected]

Successful sustainable tourism fair
Hundreds of people enjoyed the weekend of "Adventurate 2013," the first sustainable tourism fair held in the Dominican Republic, on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 March. The event was organized by the Dominican Tourist Competitiveness Consortium (CDCT) as a way of providing a space for small and medium-sized Dominican tourism companies to show off what they offer. The fair was held in the grounds of the National Botanical Garden in Santo Domingo. Exhibitors included boutique hotels, eco-lodges, rural housing, cultural excursions and adventure trips. The event also featured gastronomy and crafts from several parts of the country like San Jose de Ocoa and Bonao.
The fair also provided networking opportunities for participating business owners.
The event was supported in part by USAID funding and over 50 organizations were represented.
