I keep seeing various topics or statements being made that various resorts have sold out at varying times for the fall of 2013 and into the high season for 2014.
The vast number of new tourists seem to be, by the reports I have been reading, coming from Europe and in particular, from Russia, whereby Punta Cana airport receives 12 direct weekly flights from that country alone which represents a 33% increase in the first quarter of 2013 alone !
Punta Cana has become the Russians’ top destination in the Caribbean in just five years - along with Russia becoming the Dominican Republic’s 5th largest market for visitors - Punta Cana is now rated as the top Caribbean destination for the Russia's tourists.
Now that is a market to tap into !
It is no wonder that so many resorts are near or at a sellout point so early for this apparent "off season" and certainly going into the 2014 high season, notwithstanding the on going construction of additional rooms and facilities at various resorts and the new resorts under construction.
The world knows about the beauty and the value of the Punta Cana region !
Was checking with the Bahia resorts on potential sell outs for one of their 5 resorts in Punta Cana - the Luxury Bahia Ambar - or as they refer to it as "stop selling" dates and there are a number for this year and into 2014 already.
November 28/13 to December 6/13
January 13/14 to January 21/14
January 26/14 to February 1/14
February 17/14 to February/23
If anyone is planning a trip to Punta Cana, it does sound like it would be wise to make the decision to do so, rather quickly.
