Punta Cana preps new terminal for more US tourists
The new terminal under construction at the Punta Cana International Airport, a US$100 million investment, is scheduled to go into operation in time for the winter season traffic. The Punta Cana International Airport mainly serves tourists headed to the over 40,000 hotel rooms located in the 75 km Punta Cana beach stretch.
The new terminal is scheduled for opening in November 2014. It will add 33,000 square meters to the airport that handles the highest traveler numbers in the Dominican Republic. It will have two levels and a mezzanine. The terminal will have the capacity to move 3,000 passengers per hour.
The Punta Cana International Airport is the largest airport in the Caribbean. It will have 23 ramp positions and 50 passenger check-in points. The airport will have two terminals for serving traffic mainly from the Americas, another for traffic from Europe, and a fourth for private flights, VIP travel and small airplane traffic.
While the airport mainly serves tourists headed to the east coast resorts, the excellent road connections also make the airport a practical option for travelers from Santo Domingo to travel there to catch a flight or comfortably return to the capital city on the same day.
The airport has the largest number of connections in the country, with flights to around 80 countries. In 2013, the airport served 2,597,086 arriving passengers.
BwaKore of Martinique to perform in Sosua on 11 October
Listen to the beats of Martinique this Saturday, 11 October 2014 when the Caribbean jazz ensemble BwaKore of Martinique takes the stage at the Parque Mirador in Sosua, Puerto Plata at 7:30pm. The event is presented by the Dominican Republic Jazz Festival's Foundation (Fedujazz), Sosua City Council, the French Embassy in the Dominican Republic, the Alliance Francaise and the Martinique Region.
The BwaKore band members are Claude Cesaire, Alwin Lowenski, Jose Marie-Rose, Max Telephe and Jose Zebina.
BwaKore is known for maintaining their cultural island identity as they blend the improvisational spirit of jazz and textural trimmings of world music, with indigenous mazurka, Creole waltz and salsa beats. Their music is recognized for being "exceptional, progressive music rooted in French/World music culture".
In addition to the concert, BwaKore will lead music workshops at the Casa de Arte in Sosua for children in the Strings program, in conjunction with Fedujazz and Sosua City Council. The general public is welcome to attend.
Parque Mirador Sosua is in front of Playa Alicia, next to the Waterfront Restaurant. Seating is available, on a first come-first served basis.
A bus will depart from the Alliance Francaise in Santiago, Dominican Republic for the event. To reserve a seat, call 809 582-4998.
The presentation of BwaKore is a warm-up for the Dominican Republic Jazz Festival, which will celebrate its 18th year (6-9 Nov 2014) with four nights of concerts in the north coast towns of Puerto Plata, Sosua and Cabarete.
