Two Restored Dominican Republic Beaches to Re-open

The grand opening of the first two restored beaches involved in an overall $20 million project in the Dominican Republic will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. July 29 in Puerto Plata. Hosting the event is Dominican Republic President Leonel Fernandez and Secretary of Tourism Felix Jimenez. The Dominican Republic announced a $20 million investment in the cleaning and regenerating of several of its beaches. The comprehensive program started earlier this year and includes the restoration of Puerto Plata, Long Beach and Cabarete on the North Coast, and Boca Chica and Juan Dolio in the South. The first to be completed is the Puerto Plata Beach and Long Beach (completed in July). The remaining beaches are scheduled to be completed by the winter tourism season.
