Minister of Tourism visits beaches and resorts for Easter Week
The Minister of Tourism, David Collado, toured the main beaches and resorts of the country as has been the custom during the Holy Week holiday.
This Holy Saturday, he visited the beaches of La Romana and then the southern resorts, such as Las Marías, in Neiba, Bahoruco province, where vacationers applauded him upon his arrival.
Collado also went to Los Patos and El Quemaíto beaches in Barahona, which the Ministry of Tourism recently refurbished.
During this Holy Week, the minister has also visited the Guayacanes beaches, in San Pedro de Macorís, Macao, La Altagracia province, which were refurbished by the institution so that they would be ready for this holiday.
The result of MITUR’s work at Playa Pescador in Guayacanes is 50% less business vs before their year long project. This is because MITUR removed the parking lot so there is now only limited street parking. Over 100 cars were on the street Saturday but had no place to park so they left the area. MITUR also did not have enough tables and chairs. The private beach operators did better business.
