Since Green Living Guy is adding more green travel content, we thought it best to set it off with a trip to the Dominican Republic. This event was fully sponsored and we thank them for it.
The North Coast region, which includes Samaná, Cabarete and Puerto Plata, is comprised of pristine beaches, lush green valleys and palm-covered mountains. The beautiful landscape provides a wide-range of sustainable attractions unique to Dominican Republic. From nature trekking to snorkeling, this was an ideal trip for travelers with a passion for exploration, adventure and supporting the local economy.
We were able to:
Slide down waterfalls at the 27 Waterfalls of Damajagua
Snorkel the coral reefs of Sosua Bay
Experience the ultimate in watersports in Cabarete, the Kite Surf Capital of the World
Learn about sustainable and aquaponic farming practices of area resorts
Participate in a surf lesson
Tour the Amber Mine
Go for a swim and hike at Blue Lagoon Cenote
Took in the sites from the Teleférico Cable Car in Puerto Plata
Not only is sustainable tourism an incredibly important component of any economy, but the United Nations has declared 2017 “The Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development,” which adds another interesting angle to share with your readers, who are so passionate about sustainability.
