Chicago Tribune recommends travel to DR
The leading Chicago newspaper has picked up the Smarter Travel list that includes the Dominican Republic as one of 10 places to “get’em while they’re cheap.”
Smarter Travel’s 10 places to go list is: Riga, Latvia; Greece; Bucharest, Romania; Portugal; Sofia, Bulgaria; Mexico City; India; Philippines; Nicaragua; and the Dominican Republic.
Smarter Travel comments on the DR:
“Can you afford azure waters and silky white-sand beaches? In the Dominican Republic, you can. While the Caribbean isn't known for its affordability (we recently wrote an entire story on the region's most expensive islands), the Dominican Republic remains—at least for now—a bastion of value in a sea of high prices. With service from low-cost carriers including AirTran, Frontier, and JetBlue, and air-and-hotel vacation packages from not only a slew of airlines but also discount providers like, the Dominican Republic seems to have an endless supply of affordable options.”,0,1093141.photogallery
New rules posted for Sosua Beach
As part of efforts coordinated by the City Government of Sosua and the Ministry of Tourism, Sosua Beach now has posted rules. Banned are ambulant vendors, motorcycles or bicycles, loud music, garbage throwing, glass bottles, BBQs or bonfires, domestic animals, firearms, sleeping on the beach after 7pm, parking boats on the beach.
Zoetry Agua now has more rooms
Zoetry Agua, one of the first boutique hotels in Punta Cana, has added 45 new luxury suites with wooden floors and cane-thatched roofs in its most recent remodeling and expansion. The hotel now offers stays at 96 rooms. New with the remodeling is the Piragua restaurant, where Latin American and creole gourmet food will be offered to guests.

Repairs to Bahia de las Aguilas beach road not enough
The Ministry of Public Works reported it repaired the seven kilometer land stretch that leads to Bahia de las Aguilas beach in Pedernales. But early reports from Pedernales say that the road over the hill to Bahia de las Aguilas should only be tackled by those with SUVs. The alternative to the road is to go by boat. The Ministry of Public Works had used heavy road construction equipment in an attempt to level out the treacherous access road to the beach. The works were carried out in time for the Easter Week, the peak domestic travel holiday.
Super Dance to close Jaragua Renaissance
The Jaragua Renaissance Hotel will be celebrating a mega dance-show with Fernando Villalona and Sergio Vargas on 26 April to mark the closing of the hotel and the start of a year-long major renovation. Some US$30 million will be invested in hotel areas and another US$10 million when the renovation of the La Fiesta Theater is also considered. The decorators will incorporate the bohemian style of the original Jaragua Hotel days in the redesign. The hotel was last remodeled in 1998. It boasts the largest rooms in the city. The hotel seeks to attract meetings, conventions, incentives and events when it reopens in 2015.
The closing of the Jaragua will coincide with the opening of the new remodeled Santo Domingo Sheraton sections also on the Malecon and the JW Marriott on Av. Winston Churchill.
Fernando Villalona and Sergio Vargas are two of the best merengue orchestras in the Dominican Republic. The winner of the Salsa music of the year, Yiyo Sarante, will also be entertaining the audience with his unique brand of salsa. And Joe Veras, of El Chuchicheo-fame, will be the bachata representative. Urban music will be on the stage too with Los Teke Teke. Tickets for the dance are RD$1,200, RD$700 (balcony), RD$2,000 platinum. For reservations and to book tickets, call 809 221-1414.
