September 3. The country’s tourism sector currently has 73,000 rooms in operation, which averages an occupancy of 69% and shows the recovery that the industry continues to register little by little.
The addition of more rooms will depend on how the countries that emit tourists are opening their market to the Dominican Republic.
The information was offered by the Minister of Tourism, David Collado, and the president of the National Association of Hotels and Restaurants(Asonahores), Rafael Blanco Tejera, after announcing the start of a vaccination program to apply the third dose against covid-19 to employees of the country’s tourism sector.
“The north coast of the country depends mainly on European markets that were closed, not by the Dominican Republic, but by their own decision,” he added.
