World’s Best Hotels Named in 15th Year of Awards
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.- Tortuga Bay Puntacana Resort & Club has been recognized as a winner in the top 25 hotels in the Caribbean of the 2017 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards for Hotels, ranking 16 out of 25. In the 15th year of the awards, TripAdvisor has highlighted the world’s top properties based on the millions of reviews and opinions collected in a single year from travelers around the globe. Winners were identified in the categories of Top Hotels, Luxury, Bargain, Small, Service, B&Bs and Inns, Romance and Family. The hallmarks of Travelers’ Choice hotels winners are remarkable service, value and quality.
In the last several decades, the Caribbean has experienced widespread coral reef degradation. However, the work of Fundación Grupo Puntacana and its partners has helped create a “Hope Spot” in the eastern Dominican Republic. In 2016, for example, biologists documented sexual spawning of staghorn corals off the coast of Punta Cana for the first time ever. These corals had been transplanted as part of the Partnership for Ecologically Sustainable Coastal Areas (PESCA), a comprehensive program for the protection and restoration of the region’s coastal areas, which includes the Foundations’ coral restoration program that has spanned over a decade.

El Grupo Puntacana hundió un barco antiguo frente al litoral del Puntacana Resort & Club con el objetivo de crear un ambiente marino atractivo para los amantes del buceo.
Otro de los objetivos de la inmersión de este barco es crear un hábitat para la reproducción y conservación de diversas especies marinas, con lo que contribuirá al mejoramiento ecológico de la zona de Punta Cana.
Recognizing What We Offer
On September 9, 2016, Desire Suero Mateo—who I first met as a 13-year-old girl in my Peace Corps youth group—graduated high school an award-winning, self-assured young woman. The next day, she walked with me to the wetland I was afraid to visit.
El programa “Descarga Cero” iniciado por el Grupo Puntacana en 2007, ha logrado grandes avances en una sociedad donde no existía la cultura de reciclaje.
The daily uniform of workers at the "Fundación Grupo Puntacana" mainly comprises neoprene. It may sound like unlikely workwear, especially given the hot Dominican Republic sun, but this is no ordinary workplace. Victor Galván, a marine biologist, coordinates the association's revolutionary
Sellarés and the rest of the team - Báez, Yulisa Reyes and volunteers like Brianda Santana - have put their hearts and souls into this project. They all have the special diving certificate. 'We're like a family; there's a very strong bond among the team and also with the community; that's why this programme has been so successful. Even at the worst moments, when we ran out of money, every one pitched in and kept the programmed alive. And, thanks to that collective effort, it's still alive,' Sellarés says, proudly. Currently, six local hotels help out financially, and the staff in their diving centers handles the nursery maintenance under FUNDEMAR's supervision. Báez, affectionately nicknamed "Aladdin", is usually in charge of this task and also monitors the reefs. Having loved the sea and fished since he was eight, he's one of their most valuable collaborators, and divides his time between his working the foundation and the small-scale, sustainable fishing he does with his father. 'We've managed to get the fishermen of Bayahíbe to understand that they have to protect the reefs. The coral project is priceless; it's a privilege to work on bringing balance.
The vision continues to grow. There are currently 52 transplanted areas, and restoration projects continue to spread to other parts of the island: there are already 13 points in the Dominican Republic and two in Haiti where the coral nurseries have been replicated, projects that were started with the support of the Fundación Grupo Puntacana. Many depend heavily on volunteers. But just like Aladdin, they too dream of creating a better world, this time under the sea.
