What are we talking about this week? What aren’t we talking about this week? Unlike our normal posts in which we explore a single topic in depth, this week we are talking about all the adventures big and small you can find in the ocean at the resort. As you can see from the video, there are a lot of them, so we better get started.
Back in October, we discussed some of the sustainable farming techniques that go into producing some of the fruits, vegetables, and herbs we use in our hotels. To recap: it is rather challenging to grow large amounts of sustainable, organic produce in Puntacana, but we have found a few clever ways to make it work. As part of our commitment to sustainability, we have a composting initiative that has worked wonders to make the soil capable of handling the organic produce we cultivate. What we left out of that last post, however, are the many different plants we grow and why we grow them.
Remember a few months ago when we talked about Carnival in Dominican Republic? Carnival is almost upon us, and as of this blog post being published we are only about 28 hours away from the festivities. I’m sure that you are all asking the same question: what do we have in store for you this year?
For those of you who haven’t visited us in a little while, last week we discussed sustainable tourism and went into a little bit of detail as to why it’s so important to us. In that blog post, I made a comment that we are lucky to be located in paradise, and that it was up to us to keep it beautiful. I wanted to spend a little more time today elaborating on that idea, and all of the different ways that it applies. As you will soon see, sustainability is not only about preserving the flora and fauna in the area but also enriching the community as well.
