|Santo Domingo's Christmas attraction
Try and go early to avoid the crowds and the traffic. The city government has set up the Bright Christmas attraction at the Parque Iberoamerica of the Avenida Bolivar and Tiradentes. Live entertainment is provided at night.
The city government has installed 27 million lights in 400 trees over a one-kilometer stretch. It expects three million visitors to enjoy the Disneyworld-like experience.
|Air Europa starts flights to La Romana (LRM)
Air Europa began its flights to Madrid from the La Romana International Airport this week. The airline has scheduled two weekly flights into the La Romana Airport. The airline has a daily flight to Madrid from Santo Domingo's Las Americas International (SDQ), three weekly flights to Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ) and now two weekly flights into La Romana International. The La Romana flight departs at 10pm, making it possible to enjoy a full day prior to taking the evening flight and sleeping most of the way to Madrid.
The new La Romana bypass and express highway both to Santo Domingo and to Punta Cana mean that the airport is strategically located for travelers.
|Marc Anthony at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana
Now is the time to book into the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and enjoy a great show with Marc Anthony & Prince Royce plus all the pleasures of a beach vacation. The Puerto Rican salsa and ballad singer is booked for a 15 December concert. Anthony, described as the top selling salsa artist of all time, has won two Grammys and four Latin Grammys.
