Punta Cana-Miches road opens on Thursday
The newest 72km stretch of the Eastern Roadway Corridor (Corredor Vial del Este) from the Uvero Alto resort area to the town and emerging destination of Miches has been open to traffic for some months now and President Danilo Medina is scheduled to attend the formal opening on Thursday, 16 April 2015. The road, which was built by Brazilian company Odebrecht has 30 bridge access points and average driving speed is 80 km.
The 258km Eastern Roadway Corridor links all the main tourist destinations from the southeast to the east coast. It consists of the completed expressways from San Pedro de Macoris to La Romana, the La Romana Bypass, the Coral Highway and the new Boulevard Turistico de Miches.
The Boulevard Turistico de Miches crosses three provinces - La Altagracia, El Seibo and Hato Mayor. It starts in Bavaro and passes through Macao, Uvero Alto and Miches. The final stretch, once completed, will end in Sabana de la Mar, the gateway to Los Haitises National Park.
The new road access opens up the beaches of Playa La Vacama, Playa Limon, Laguna Limon, Playa Esmeralda, Laguna Redonda and Playa Arriba in Miches for tourism development.
Jaragua booking from 15 June 2015
The Jaragua Renaissance Santo Domingo is scheduled to reopen for business in June. The hotel booking system is taking reservations online from 15 June 2015.
Hotel Jaragua Renaissance marketing and sales manager Jose Castillo said that the US$42 million remodeling program that the hotel is undergoing will improve its facilities with a view to attracting the conventions and congresses market.
Marriott operates three hotels in Santo Domingo - the Jaragua, the JW Marriott and the Courtyard Marriott. Santo Domingo also has a range of other accommodation options including the remodeled Santo Domingo Sheraton and the brand new Embassy Suites hotel.
In an interview with El Dinero, Castillo said: "Santo Domingo cannot claim to be like Punta Cana. But we have to show tourists that while we are not a sun and sand destination, we are a cultural destination." He praised the Colonial City restoration program.
The Jaragua hotel was originally built in 1942, but the original building was demolished and the new Jaragua Renaissance was built on the site, opening in 1989. This is the hotel's first major renovation.
DATE readies for 28-30 April event
This year's Dominican Annual Tourism Exchange is being held at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort convention center from 28-30 April. A group of 50 buyers specialized in the MICE have been invited.
