Abinader announces daily Caribbean Ferries route connecting San Pedro de Macorís to Puerto Rico

Santo Domingo.- President Luis Abinader has announced the launch of a new Caribbean Ferries route, connecting San Pedro de Macorís in the Dominican Republic to Mayagüez, Puerto Rico, on a daily basis starting from July of this year.

This initiative, spanning 133 nautical miles and lasting six hours, is expected to have a profound impact on the tourism and economy of the Eastern Sultanate. The route will be capable of transporting around 1,000 passengers, 350 vehicles, and 300 containers to the Dominican soil.

The collaboration between the Dominican Port Authority (Apordom) and the Spanish company Balearia, presented at the recent International Tourism Fair (Fitur 2024), aims to transform the Port of San Pedro de Macorís into a hub where cargo and tourism seamlessly coexist between the Dominican Republic and Mayagüez.

Currently, there is an existing ferry route between the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, with fixed departures on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays at 6:00 in the evening. Operated by Ferries del Caribe, these routes travel from San Juan, the Puerto Rican capital, to Santo Domingo on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Sundays at the same specified times.
