Yes, construction is well under way. Fingers crossed that the rumour about La Bolera becoming a cultural centre is true!

Last trip to the Blue Mall in April, there was infrastructure work on the space to be occupied by National. Looks like there will be MUCH better parking at Blue Mall than there was at the current location. It's always a thorn in my side to have to scout a space to park the little KIA when shopping there.

I know that our Jumbo is not the "Jumboest" on the Island. Sometimes semantics can mislead observers to the wrong conclusion. Let's hope that it is the "superest" National in the Dominican Republic. We need something to brag about around here! :pirate:

It looks like Blue Mall is introducing a shuttle service to and from Punta Cana and Cap Cana. I saw it on the billboard as we drove past so no exact details yet.

Think you weren't there recently, the Fishing Lodge is not isolated and there are businesses doing well in the area.It is only 10 min from Blue Mall, so not isolated at all!

Any updates on progress?

Last trip to the Blue Mall in April, there was infrastructure work on the space to be occupied by National. Looks like there will be MUCH better parking at Blue Mall than there was at the current location. It's always a thorn in my side to have to scout a space to park the little KIA when shopping there.
Wondering if any update news? How is Punta Cana Village faring. I understand not many, if any, tourists around. Sargassum, noxious odors etc etc. Word on the streets...PC in big tourist trouble. Hotel cancellations, people who were here with massive complaints about lack of service, lack of comprehension re staffs, foodborne illnesses. What to do.
But for me I am interested in Nacional. Thanks for any info.

Fishing Lodge is isolated. No one is there! It is close to Blue Mall ... But not many are around to go there either. Bottom line Fishing Lodge like everywhere else in Cap Cana now. empty

Construction continues on Nacional. 3 stories high, looks like it'll be a good size. I was told they're aiming to open in December.

If we are talking about Blu Mall in Cap Cana I was just there and the project is still a shell with virtually no work going on.

We rented an air bnb and the sargassum was so bad we couldn't stay in it. Got a full refund though which was nice. No airbnb service fee either.

Every time I go by there are workers there. Original opening date was December but that obviously won't happen. That said, what's left is all the inside installations, doors and windows and the outside.

So basically the entire build is still to come. Inside, outside, top bottom and sides[emoji39]

Maybe December 2020?

Here's what it looks like today. Windows are being installed and I think I saw freezers inside.
