Advancements in Cabo Rojo: Construction of First Three Hotels and Cruise Terminal Picks up Pace

Cabo Rojo.- The Cabo Rojo Tourism Development project in the Pedernales province of the Dominican Republic is making significant progress in its first phase. This phase involves constructing buildings for three hotels, a cruise terminal, road infrastructure, hydrosanitary and electrical works. Preparations for the international airport in the community of Oviedo are also underway.

Several renowned hotel chains, including Iberostar, Hilton, Marriott, Sunwing, Inclusive Collection (part of World of Hyatt), and Karisma Hotels & Resorts, have expressed interest in being part of this development. The goal of this project is to establish a distinctive tourist destination known for ecotourism, pristine beaches, and its appeal to adventure tourism.

President Luis Abinader is strongly committed to the tourism development in Cabo Rojo. The plan is to receive the first cruise passengers at Puerto Cabo Rojo on December 18. The first hotels are expected to be operational by the end of 2024, while construction of the airport will have commenced.

The government’s support for this project includes granting property titles to previous occupants of the land where the airport will be built in Oviedo. This ensures legal ownership and access to credit. Spanish hotel groups have also indicated interest in bringing their brands to Cabo Rojo, with Iberostar being selected for the first phase and the possibility of involvement from the Meli├í hotel chain in a second phase.

The development of Cabo Rojo as a tourist destination holds tremendous potential for the Dominican Republic and the region, attracting the attention of national and international stakeholders alike.
