Polo Challenge 2016
The Polo Challenge 2016 continues at the polo fields of Casa de Campo and Los Establos in Cap Cana, Punta Cana. While the DR has hosted polo since the 1930s, this year was the first high-goal season. The event has brought together some of the world's top polo players.
The final of the Silver Cup "Banco del Progreso American Express" will take place on Sunday 27 March in Casa de Campo from 2:30pm. The semi-finalists during the qualifying stages were Undefeated Lechuza, Agualinda, Test Drive and La Carbuccia.

Good year for La Romana hotels
La Romana-Bayahibe Hotels Association president Daniel Hernandez says that 2015 was another good year for the destination. He told the press that La Romana-Bayahibe hotels had posted an 84.86% average occupancy rate for the year, which is 0.5% higher than 2014. He mentioned events organized by the Association such as the Bayahibe 10K run and the La Romana-Bayahibe golf tournament. He listed the weather, strategic location, environmental conservation and maintenance of high security standards as the main reasons for the destination's good performance. Hernandez was recently re-elected to chair the regional tourism sector organization whose member hotels include Casa de Campo, Be Live Collection Canoa, Catalonia Gran Dominicus, Dreams La Romana, Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus, Viva Wyndham Dominicus and Cadaques Bayahibe.
Arturo Villanueva retires from Asonahores
Arturo Villanueva recently announced his retirement from the helm of the National Hotel & Tourism Association (Asonahores) after more than 25 years. Villanueva has held the post of executive vice president since 1990. He said he would maintain his links with the sector and with Asonahores. Villanueva's retirement becomes effective in May 2016, after the hosting of the annual DATE travel event in Punta Cana in mid April. It is reported that Villanueva will be staying on as an advisor to the Asonahores board. Asonahores has yet to announce his replacement.
Air Mexico arrives in DR
Mexico's largest airline, Aeromexico began direct flights to Santo Domingo on 16 March 2016. The airline is starting with a frequency of four times a week from Santo Domingo to Mexico City. Aeromexico's senior vice president for global sales, Jorge Goytortua said that the increase in commercial interaction between the Dominican Republic and Mexico over the past few years was behind the expansion of the airline's international routes to Santo Domingo. In the past, passengers had to fly to Panama or to Miami to connect to Mexico. The direct flight reduces travel time by at least six hours.
Pointing out that the DR is the most visited country in the Caribbean, Goytortua says the Aeromexico route will now provide even more connectivity. Aeromexico flies to 46 cities in Mexico, 16 in the United States, three in Canada and two in Asia.
Monika Infante, director general of Aerodom, which manages the Santo Domingo Las Americas International Airport said that the flight was secured thanks to ongoing efforts by the Ministry of Tourism, the private business sector, and the Dominican-Mexican Chamber of Commerce with the strong support of Aeromexico and Aerodom to connect the two cities.
Air Century to fly to Port-au-Prince
Air Century has announced it will start flights to Haiti on 28 March 2016.
The company recently complained that red tape imposed by the Haitian aviation authorities had prevented the flight from being approved. At present, the Santo Domingo-Port-au-Prince route is only served by the Haitian airline Sunrise. Air Century says it has invested US$4.5 million in a new fleet of two Saab 340B airplanes, each with a capacity for 34 passengers, for the service. Flights are from Santo Domingo's La Isabela International Airport to Port-au-Prince International Airport.
