The third annual Discover Puerto Plata MarketPlace will be held October 2-3 at the Iberostar Costa Dorada, one of the region’s finest hotels and situated just 10 minutes from Puerto Plata, the Dominican Republic’s most important north coast city. The annual event is organized by the Tourism and Cultural Cluster of Puerto Plata and sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism with the support of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
This year’s event will feature a yacht segment. Organizers want to highlight the region’s impressive yacht facilities and exceptional water conditions for sailing, fishing and water sports.
Another important aspect of the fair is to strengthen trade relations with tour operators who want to promote Puerto Plata and the country’s north coast.
Last year’s event was attended by representatives from Puerto Rico, the United States, Argentina, Canada, Mexico, Peru, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, France, Italy, United Kingdom, Colombia, Venezuela, Panama, Costa Rica and Chile.
