TOP NEWS IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC NOW (JULY 2020)
CAN’T WAIT FOR RESORTS TO OPEN? RENT A CONDO ON OR BY THE BEACH!
During this Worldwide COVID-19 Pandemic Crisis, our Agency wanted to extend our sincere condolences to those families around the world who have lost love ones to this terrible virus.
We are watching the world events, and our prayers continue to go out to all those struggling during this time of challenge, including Americans during the current days of political unrest, riots, and violence.
The novel coronavirus is dying, but still at the forefront of everyone’s mind. Countries, States, Provinces, and Cities worldwide continue to work together on the best ways to respond to these COVID-19 outbreaks and finding creative ways to help everyone get through these long and trying days. Of course, not without some opposition. This is normal human and political behavior. See our THANK YOU'S BELOW!

With these life-changing events, many frequent Tropical Vacationers have already booked flights!
AND... We have still been making virtual REAL ESTATE SALES even during the pandemic. With several new property showings scheduled from July 15 to September (so far)!

… "We would “rather be riding this situation out there… on the beach, in a safe and friendly country where Covid-19 deaths are low, and where the government cares about safety ,and its people. A place where it’s always sunny and warm with abounding tropical views, ocean breezes, and plenty to eat and a drink”

So what IS going on over there in Punta Cana? Glad you asked. DOMINICAN TODAY is a great online resource (in English and Spanish) so you can read firsthand what’s going in the Dominican Republic.. This is a great resource for getting the daily news as to what's happening DAILY in the Dominican Republic.
Keep in mind, some articles talk about the larger amount of covid-19 cases in the bigger cities like the captial of Santo Domingo, where the population there alone is nearly 6 million people. Santo Domingo is still a 2.5 hour drive away. Coronavirus cases in Bavaro & Punta Cana are so low, and I don't believe we have had 1 death in Bavaro. Punta Cana/ Bavaro are the two touristic zones where over 52 all-inclusive resorts are. Road checks for those coming off the highway are still in place. If visitors from other cities do not have a reservation, or family here, they are not permitted to enter the touristic areas yet.
COVID-19 - THE MINISTRY OF ECONOMY PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT (*TENTATIVE) STAGES OF BUSINESS RE-OPENING. Note, due to the covid-19 cases being so low in the touristic zones, some dates for Punta Cana/ Bavaro were moved up from the original estimate.
