Boom year for Dominican tourism
Central Bank Governor Hector Valdez Albizu says that July 2015 was a record month for non-resident travel to the Dominican Republic. A record 568,323 visitors, including foreigners and non-resident Dominicans (10.4% annual growth) arrived in the country in July 2015. Travel in August 2015 is also showing a strong increase of 9.7%. Based on the strong summer month figures, Valdez is forecasting a record year for Dominican tourism. It is also worth mentioning that tourism will receive an additional boost later this year with the maritime arrivals via the Carnival Amber Cove port in Puerto Plata, scheduled to open on 6 October 2015.
