The CEO of Grupo Piñero, Encarna Piñero, does not rule out landing in Pedernales with a hotel project; on the contrary, she has revealed to arecoa.com that the emerging destination, which has strong support from the Dominican government for its tourism development, “is on her roadmap”.
“Investing in Pedernales is one of the objectives we have set for ourselves. We believe very much in this country and it is part of our life. We do not rule out continuing to invest and position ourselves in other destinations that can also be leaders in tourism in the DR,” he said.
He said that they are currently focused on the renovation of the Bahía Príncipe Cayo Levantado hotel, the “star project” of the chain in the country, which is taking shape with the help of local companies and talent in the bay of Samaná.
Compared to other tourist destinations in the Dominican Republic, Pedernales will have the advantage of starting out with a well-conceived development plan, in addition to integrating top-level hotels with luxury cruise ships.
Not to mention the essential international airport that will be built in Cabo Rojo, a completion that, like the other tourist infrastructures, will be executed through a public-private alliance.
