The Puerto Plata Report: news and travel info from the Dominican Republic's north coast

Tourism ministry launches know-your-own-country campaign

Dominicans will be encouraged to get to know their own country via a Tourism Ministry project “Tourism for All” to begin in the next few days and includes massive excursions by families, students and employees of various companies to natural attractions in the north, east and northeastern tourism zones.

Tourism minister Francisco Javier Garcia, interviewed by newspaper Listin Diario, said the project includes a national ad campaign and logistics so Dominicans can travel on weekends in as many as 80 buses to know and enjoy tourism spots such as Samaná (northeast), Bavaro (east) and Puerto Plata (north).

He said tourists from Russia, Germany, Canada or the United States often know and enjoy the Dominican Republic more than the natives.

Garcia said there’s a need to create areas of penetration in the national parks, with the Environment Ministry’s approval, to add these attractions to the national tourism.
