The Ministry of Tourism (Mitur), Dominican Port Authority and the company Puerto Plata Port Investment, announced that for November 2020, Puerto Plata will already be receiving the first cruise ships in that tourism destiny.

The press conference was led by the Vice Minister of Tourism, Julio Almonte, the director of the Dominican Port Authority, Víctor Gómez Casanova and Mauricio Hamui of the Puerto Plata Port Investment company and the Taíno Bay Cruise Terminal.

Gómez Casanova said that cruise companies are already selling Puerto Plata as a destination from November 2020, because they usually prepare and promote their travel and reservation calendars two years in advance, for sales and marketing purposes.

“From the first moment that this project was discussed, President Danilo Medina’s first condition to investors was that the contracts and operations of the cargo area in the Port of Puerto Plata had to be respected, and the construction of a new area of operations for fishermen, which was accepted by the company that finally won the tender and is thus committed to doing so in the concession contract,” he said.
