    Friends of mine have booked in Punta Cana for a wedding; another group of Free Masons have also booked a group into PC for the same month.
    WHen asked ,they did not seem frizzled about the past bad press.
    Interesting for sure.

    It would be nice if they rolled back the ridiculous taxes and fees from airfares there.

    Looked into a round trip from DCA/BWI/IAD to SDQ. $600+

    Mombasa R/T from IAD = $720

    No brainer...

    Totally agree with you, ther are tones of tourist that want to visit the country out of All Inclusive packages and go another places because of hight taxes in airfares, its time to review those rates now that every year we receive more and more visitors.

    My niece and her husband just returned from their vacation at Hard Rock, Punta Cana. They met a group of 40 other people there. No problems for any of them. They had all booked this vacation before all the bad publicity but all went despite the bad press. Of course they had some doubts before hand.
    No regrets about going!

    According to the Dominican view of life and business, the fact that we are receiving more and more visitors is ample reason to maintain the high taxes, or even increase them if people are willing to pay!

    The view I see is as better price more will come to visit with and without packages.

    Hell. Even Anna Wintour just said on Vogue's instagram that coming to D.R is her favorite holiday tradition. We been getting good press lately. Ashley Brokaw was at Amanera last week (Prada/Louis Vuitton Casting Director), and that's just big players from the fashion industry lol, there's been many ball players/Formula 1/celebrities here lately.
