    Default New Theme Park

    Does anybody have information where in Punta Cana this new "Extreme Park Punta Cana" is going to be constructed; IE: near the airport, along the new Coral Highway, Uvero Alto, Cabeza de Toro ?

    Lot's of media information about El Presidente being there for the ground breaking but no info on exact location and cannot rely on the locals for same as they are also sometimes kept in the dark.

    Regards,

    PJT

    Note: PJT is out of country for a while and missed receiving his invite to ground breaking.

    I saw a large tent set up the other day on the Bulevar Turistico close to the entrance to Cabeza de Toro (right-hand side, about 300m further along heading towards Bavaro). I believe that's where it'll be...

    That could be where it will be set up, just off the highway, If you were facing towards the sea on the Bulevar at the access road to Cabeza de Toro, you are saying the tent was on the Bulevar to the Bavaro side, the left of the access road? Most of the land on that side has been undeveloped, although there are few existing dwellings set back in the tract. The land to the right of the access road is open mine land with a few small settlements within it and on its parameter.

    Is That a "Pile-of-$hit" that Danilo is shoveling???????????
    180 million dollar "Theme Park", and a family in Santo Domingo asking for donations in today's "Diario Libre", so their son can get treated here for leukemia.
    Does the word "Priorities" translate to Spanish????

    So... In the developed first world where you come from, there are NO parents begging for MONEY so their son can get treated for Leukemia???? Or are private developers held accountable for public health in the health care system there?


    ???????????????????????????????????

    So in your statement above, the 'private" developers should instead invest the money into providing free care to leukemia sufferers in the DR and the President not supposed to break ground on the project, which will bring "less" money to the state coffers in the long term to help pay for future leukemia sufferers like that boy in the front page?

    I see your "reasoning" clear as water... NOT!

    That's called talking Batata...
