DATE 2022: tourism returns strongly in Punta Cana


Little by little, hope and optimism are recovering after the pandemic. And we celebrate it in style, resuming DATE 2022, DATE 2022which took place between May 11 and 13, after two years of pandemic in which it had been cancelled. The closing ceremony took place in the Caribbean Lake Park, which for us was an exciting experience, where we could enjoy live music, dancers, and fun. 

El The Dominican Annual Tourism Exchange (DATE) is the flagship event for the marketing of tourism in the Dominican Republic. It is a time for authorities and companies in the tourism sector to meet up, which was attended by the President of the Dominican Republic, Luis Abinader, and the Minister of Tourism, David Collado. During this event, important negotiations are carried out between travel agents, tour operators and the main suppliers of the sector at a national level.

DATE was organised by the ASONAHORES (Dominican Republic Hotel and Tourism Association in its Spanish initials) at the Barceló Bávaro Convention Center, Punta Cana, located a short distance from our water park.



Enjoy DATE 2022 and tourism in the Dominican Republic again

El DATE 2022 serves as a catalyst to boost the tourism market in the Dominican Republic, and particularly in Punta Cana, after two years of a pandemic in which it has not been possible to celebrate. During the days that the event has lasted, wholesalers and tour operators had an opportunity to meet with more than 100 suppliers of tourism products and services in the Dominican Republic.

The Dominican Republic is once again an open place for tourism. Since last February 17, there are no travel restrictions, nor the obligation to present vaccination certificates, or wear a mask, to travel to the Dominican Republic, however, its use is still recommended in closed and crowded places.

In DATE 2022, the Minister of Tourism David Collado also signed several agreements in order to promote the recovery of the tourism market from Canada and facilitate the promotion of the Dominican Republic as a tourist destination. This event also took place at El Palazo for the start of the construction of Secret Tides Punta Cana, a space that will have 700 rooms and create more than 3,000 direct and indirect jobs. 

These advances fill us with hope to continue promoting tourism in Punta Cana , one of the most beautiful areas of the Caribbean, where it is possible to enjoy the best water and sports activities, such as boat tours, snorkeling, windsurfing, diving, fishing, and wakeboarding.
