Tourism sector float proves a major attraction at the closing Carnival parade

  • Puerto Plata.- An example of the important role of the tourism and hospitality sector in the province of Puerto Plata was the sector’s participation in the closing parade of the Carnival, which took place on the Malecon in Puerto Plata last Saturday.
  • To the surprise and amazement of the thousands of local and international spectators who witnessed the extravagance and colors of the Carnival, the sector’s float featured the hoteliers and other leaders in the tourism business appearing on top of an impressive float with the slogan "Discover Puerto Plata"  -- a slogan inspired by the variety of attractions of Puerto Plata province as a destination. All the way along the waterfront of the city, the float sent out its enthusiastic, positive message and it was accompanied by the contagious rhythms and movements of the Bravissimo Show dancers of Ocean World.
  • In a show of unity, managers and CEOs of various tourism associations of the area are working together and cooperating in supporting events and traditions that make Puerto Plata such a beautiful and unique destination.
  • The participation in this last closing event of  Carnival 2013 in Puerto Plata was the perfect moment to herald the tourism sector’s increasingly close contact with the community, to encourage the preservation of our natural, cultural and social resources, and to enhance the population’s enjoyment of the leisure and recreation the Amber Coast has to offer.
