The Minister of Tourism, David Collado, began work on the improvement of the surroundings of the Boca de Cachón beach resort, in Jimaní, at a cost of over 83 million pesos.
The project consists of the intervention of a total area of 9,720 square meters, which includes 59 parking lots for vehicles, another 21 motorcycles and two booths for the Tourist Police (Politur).
The work also includes 2 sales modules with pergolas, 2 restroom modules and 4 pergolas for temporary sales.
Collado said that the work will give a radical change to the resort and will have an extraordinary impact on the commercial activity of its surroundings.
“I assure you that this intervention, here in Boca de Cachón, will mark a before and after in this area, where visitors will be able to fully enjoy themselves,” he said.
He emphasized that the work was designed taking into account its topography, adapting it by means of stairs and ramps for better accessibility, as well as the construction of recreational platforms in the vicinity of the spa for the enjoyment of its cold and crystalline waters.
The intervention will be carried out through the Comité Ejecutor de Infraestructuras en Zonas Turísticas (Ceiztur), at a cost of DR$83,212,495.03 and will be divided into 2 recreational areas.
The first zone contemplates a viewpoint – stairway, this being the pedestrian access area to the resort from the main road.
Zone two includes the recreational plazas, children’s playgrounds, main restroom module, showers, pergola and access from the main parking lot.
The work also includes landscaping throughout the resort, equipment, playground equipment, lighting, signage, universal access ramp, concrete benches, picnic tables and trash cans, among others.
This project is part of the program for the recovery of marine coasts, public spaces, boardwalks, beaches and seaside resorts, which is being developed by the Ministry of Tourism (Mitur).
