The president of the Destination Puerto Plata Tourism Cluster (CTDPP), César José De los Santos, said that thanks to the efforts made by the Government, the private sector and all the tourism sub sectors, the important line of cruises begins to reactivate, after the arrival of several cruise ships at the Amber Cove terminal in Maimon.
He pointed out that Puerto Plata is heading towards progress and repositioning as a world tourist destination since it has a number of natural, architectural and cultural resources that make it a destination with great potential.
He recalled that before the start of the pandemic, Puerto Plata was at the moment of the great takeoff in the tourist relaunch in terms of capital as the main headquarters of cruise tourism in the Dominican Republic.
He said that before the Covid-19, in Puerto Plata there was a growth in the complementary offer of the hotel sector, but that the pandemic is already passing and work is being done on the repositioning of this destination located in the Atlantic part of the country.
“Puerto Plata has all the conditions to carry a dynamic tourism, every day more diverse and rich, due to the advances in the hotel sector, security and the various natural, historical and cultural attractions that it has,” he said.
De los Santos, said that all sectors are contributing their grain of sand to make Puerto Plata’s tourist rebirth a reality and announced that one of the symbols of local tourism such as the cable car will reactivate its operation in a few days.
