July 5. The Ministry of Tourism (Mitur) reported on 4 July 2022 a new record in tourist arrivals for the month of June. Tourism Minister David Collado announced that 644,861 foreigners arrived in June 2022. This is 9.9% more than in June 2018 and 9.8% higher than in June 2019, the two pre-pandemic years. He attributed the increase to the total recovery of the industry due to the efforts of the public and private sectors.

Collado announced that 3,547,142 tourists have visited the country in the first half of the year. He said average hotel occupancy is at 71% with an average stay of 10 days. Punta Cana and Las Americas (Santo Domingo) airports have received the most visitors.

Collado said that there has been a sustained increase in visitors by sea. He revealed that 72,689 cruise passengers visited in June, which represents 25% more than those arriving in the same period of 2019.

Collado forecast the year will close with more than seven million visitors, “a historic figure in tourist arrivals to the Dominican Republic.”
