Ceiztur has to make the public beach arrangements public visitor friendly.

When Playa Macao was improved by the government the seaside parking was replaced by parking away from the beach. The change made beach access inconvenient for people, especially those with mobility problems. The beach restaurants dispersed along the beach were moved and compressed into a area close to the parking tract foot bridge. Some of the restauranteurs were put off by this alteration. The result of this change pressured the beach goers to camp near the bridge and away from the eastern end of the beach thus leaving that location sparsely occupied. The Dreams Resort gobbled up beach front on the west end, making it private. There is a public dread it could come to pass the eastern end of the beach will be consumed by another resort or private enterprise.

Sometimes government would be better off to maintain things as they are for the sake of keeping Dominicanos content with what they know and simply enjoy.

Good luck to Miches.
