Puerto Plata—The Puerto Plata Cable Car will close its operations for 18 to 24 months for remodeling and modernization, according to Vladimir Santana, a Cable Car Shop Owners Association representative.

He indicated that after meeting via Zoom with President Luis Abinader, the Minister of Tourism, David Collado, and the members of the Patronato del Teleférico, it was explained to them that the tourist destination would be “completely” rebuilt.

He said that the projected investment is US$20 million and that compensation for the time and losses was discussed during the dialogue, “the amount of which has not yet been established.”
