The Association of Hotels, Restaurants and Tourist Companies of the North (Ashonorte), the Tourist Cluster of the Puerto Plata Destination, and the Association of Merchants and Industrialists of Santiago (ACIS) began a collaborative process to management strategies that can integrate Santiago and Puerto Plata as a macro destination.

The meeting, with the motto “Puerto Plata-Santiago: Two cities, one destination”, was held at the Senator Spa Resort hotel and was attended by the Senator and President of the Senate Tourism Commission, Ginette Bournigal; the Mayor of Luperón, Douglas Pichardo; the presidents of Ashonorte and the Cluster, Carlos Rodolí and Birgitt Heinsen, respectively, and the president of the ACIS, Sandy Filpo, among others.

Rodolí highlighted the importance of being able to join forces so that relations between the Puerto Plata destination and Santiago are strengthened through support alliances, where both provinces benefit.

“Union, integration and cooperation are three words that should define this exchange of the best practices of our institutions, taking advantage of the characteristics and benefits that complement us as the most diverse and complete region in the country”,  he said.
