DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. THE BEST INVESTMENT DESTINATION FOR HOTEL RENTAL PROPERTIES.



PUNTA CANA, ONE OF THE WORLD'S TOP TOURIST DESTINATIONS



Punta Cana is among the top five most sought-after vacation destinations in the world for 2021, according to leading travel publication Condé Nast Traveler. It was also found that more travelers than ever want to vacation in Punta Cana in 2021, and it is no wonder that the priority of travelers at this time is "seclusion, sun and sand". And Punta Cana has it all!


The data comes from the Travel Trends 2021 report of the leading travel website Expedia. It precedes another report that shows the Dominican Republic leading the way in the Caribbean and Central America, attracting one in six (17%) of all visitors to the region in 2019.



Magaly Toribio, marketing consultant for the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism, says, "The Dominican Republic continues to take some of the strictest security measures in the Caribbean during the COVID-19 pandemic; travelers looking for a safe getaway will find it on the shores of Punta Cana and the rest of the country."


Since the summer of 2020, when the Dominican Republic opened its airports, the country has attracted more than one million tourists.


As COVID restrictions begin to ease in 2021, the Dominican Republic is looking to capitalize on increased online interest from vacationers. American Airlines, for example, just reaffirmed its commitment to the Dominican Republic by announcing more flights beginning in April. In January, Bulgaria's new airline, GullivAir, launched weekly flights to Punta Cana, and from South America, low-cost carriers such as Wingo and Ultra Air are planning more routes, particularly from Colombia.


Punta Cana is the country's number one tourist destination thanks to its nearly 50 kilometers of coastline, world-class attractions and entertainment, and championship golf courses. It is also well connected, thanks to its international airport. In a typical year, nearly 8 million passengers pass through Punta Cana International Airport, two-thirds of all tourists to the Dominican Republic.
