Some 168 beaches and resorts close for Easter

Santo Domingo.– Some 168 beaches and resorts nationwide were shut down by the authorities, so that they are not used by vacationers during the Easter holiday.

According to the Emergency Operations Center (COE), the preventive measure is part of the “Easter Plan 2013,” aimed at reducing the number of unfortunate events during Holy Week.

COE director Juan Manuel Mendez said the closure of the resorts and beaches was done because these places represent a danger for vacationers and residents in those areas.

Most closed beaches and resorts are located in Santo Domingo (24) and San Pedro de Macoris (23). But other provinces are included in the measure, such as Peravia, Santiago, Monte Plata, Monseñor Nouel, San Cristóbal, Barahona and Samaná.

    Who dreamed up that one? Let’s punish the tourists because we have no idea how to deal with the criminals.
