Martin Ordeñana – Dominican Republic

The intent is to tell and make known the lifestyle of the hinterland of one of the terrestrial paradises known almost exclusively for its splendid views.  The crowded streets, the markets. The conditions in which the locals live, their smiles and their hopes in a country where tourism is lived exclusively.

Punta Cana is part of the Punta Cana-Bávaro-Veron-Macao district, in the municipality of Higüey in the province of La Altagracia (the easternmost province of the Dominican Republic).

The area has beaches overlooking both the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean and has been a tourist resort since the 70s of the twentieth century.

The name Punta Cana refers to the cane palms present in the region, and literally means “tip of the white palm stick”.

Higüey, with its 251,243 inhabitants, is 45 km away and about an hour’s drive away. Several European hotel chains, mostly Spanish, own all but two of the 50 and more megaresorts of this tourist destination.

Tourism is the main economic resource of the island, of fundamental importance are agriculture with sugar cane plantations. Rum and cigars are the perfect match in the Dominican Republic, whose fertile soils produce tobacco of the highest quality and fine sugar cane inland are the coffee and cocoa plantations
