The Ministry of Culture wants culture to play more of a role in the Dominican tourism industry. Minister of Culture Jose Antonio Rodriguez will be speaking on "Culture in Sustainable Tourism in Santo Domingo" this coming Tuesday, 6 August at 6pm in the Colonial City. The Santo Domingo Tourism Cluster is inviting to the talk that will take place at the Palacio Consistorial, Calle Arzobispo Merino, Calle El Conde, Colonial City. Those interested in attending should call 809 687-8217.
Delta to add flights to Punta Cana from Pittsburgh
Delta Air Lines plans to add weekly flights from Pittsburgh International Airport to Punta Cana International in the Dominican Republic starting 21 December.
Delta currently offers 33 daily flights to seven US destinations from Pittsburgh, as well as flights to Paris, Pittsburgh's only nonstop trans-Atlantic service.
Fishing on the new Malecon piers
Plaza Juan Baron, Plaza Guibia, Paseo Maritimo 30 de Mayo (opening in two months) and Parque Eugenio Maria de Hostos (opening 2013) are part of major urban renewal efforts for the city's sea-fronting boulevard.
Mayor of Santo Domingo Roberto Salcedo announced last week that the first phase of the Paseo Maritimo 30 de Mayo would be ready in two months time. The new city walkway is under construction on a 4.5 km stretch on the Malecon between Abraham Lincoln and Nunez de Caceres avenues. Six piers now extend into the Caribbean Sea for use by recreational fishing during the day and even at night is the novelty of the renewed public space. These will also serve as miradors and there will be security by municipal police during the day and night. The works are costing RD$175 million said the mayor.
The city government is working to improve the sea-bordering protected area that stretches around 15 kms from west to east at the south side of Santo Domingo.
The Executive Branch also sent to Congress last week changes to the Tourism Incentives Law 158-01 to include the area of the Malecon. Hotels and tourism projects that qualify can enjoy 10 years of tax exemptions.
Cabrera's Malecon lit up for strolls
The people of Cabrera can now enjoy day and evening strolls on the town's Malecon. President Danilo Medina visited the town on one of his unannounced Sunday outings and promised to pave the Malecon that runs alongside the Atlantic Ocean. He came through with the promise and the townspeople now enjoy a brand new, perfectly paved, sidewalk framed and well-lit boulevard.
Cabrera is a north coast community best known for its upscale home properties.
