Little known Dominican retreat prepares for the Caribbean big league
Miches, Dominican Republic.- Few places can boast as many features as the town of Miches; on Samana bay: prairies, mountains, lakes, waterfalls, beautiful sand, rivers, streams, mines and even Taino Indian burial sites, attraction which in addition to being unrivaled, reveals its great potential.
Forests, strategic location close to the Bavaro-Punta Cana resort region, a pristine beach as yet untapped.
It boasts the charm of Cayo Levantado, dubbed Bacardi Island, Los Haitises National Park and the spectacle put on by the humpback whales from January to March every year.
Many wage on Miches’ future and it it’s not a whim: Deep pocket investors such as Venezuelan-Dominican mogul Gustavo Cisneros already announced a major project expected to make the town one of the most attractive destinations with a bright future in tourism.
On Thursday the Cisneros’s Tropicalia group broke ground for the construction of an “ecologically sustainable” luxury tourism project whose first phase will be built at a cost of more than US$300 million.
Also favoring Miches’ chances are the more than 62 hotels in adjacent La Altagracia province, where space for new resorts is getting scarce.
Tropicalia’s real estate and resort project, despite its over 10 years in the making, mark a before and after that could position Miches among the Caribbean’s upscale tourism destinations.
