Santo Domingo.- The head of the new maritime and tourist services companies grouped in ADOEMASTUR on Tuesday deplored the state of sprawl and disorder posed by the peddlers at the Bávaro and Punta Cana tourism regions.

ADOEMASTUR president Ariel Carreras also criticized the services that he calls deficient, provided to visitors on the beaches and "other key places for the sustained growth which that demarcation is capable of generating."

The business leader took the association’s reigns in a ceremony at Bavaro’s Hotel Meliá Caribe, attended by dozens of representatives from various areas of the tourism sector, including Hotels and Tourism Association (ASONAHORES) vice president Arturo Villanueva, who lauded the recently created organization.

"We’re confident that this guild will help develop this area increasingly appreciated and valued by national and foreign visitors," said Villanueva.

Among ADOEMASTUR’s objectives, Carreras cited the supply services companies, especially those described as complementary offers for the tourism sector.

"This new Guild is committed and determined to contribute its grain of sand for the solution of so many shortcomings which hobble this tourist region, despite the effort by Tourism Ministry authorities and other government agencies that we acknowledge," Carreras said in a statement.

Translation: "We have ours now we are going to pay off the politicians to keep the competition away"

I think they want to keep Punta Cana as a premium destination, the sprawl has ruined all our beach towns.

This is a backdoor attempt to rid the area of local merchants to secure the zone for select outsider merchants that in turn will market for the foreign tourist trade to produce revenue for their sponsors. Dominican families seeking to spend a weekend day at the few remaining public beaches in the zone would be hostage to the costs of the new ample services provided visitors by the ADOEMASTUR groups rather than the deficient services they are content with.

This is a part of a steady intrusion of outside groups and authorities to limit and/or deny locals of the fruits of the tourism sector. Less locals mean more tourists to gouge. It is setting its own order to cash in on the tourist trade by denying tourists economic choice.

Just wondering how many of these maritime and tourist services companies that make up the group have concession stations within the resorts. It seems to me they are demanding exclusive rights to all the beach areas. They want to hobble the little guy.
