Significantly, the opening of the resort will be accompanied by two sustainability projects, intended to strengthen ecological development in the region, certain to attract the interest of diving enthusiasts.

The ‘Reef Project’ with the Maguá Ecological Foundation will also be implemented, which aims to increase the biological diversity of the area through the development of ecosystems such as coral reefs and mangroves.

The properties can also be rented for a longer-term stay or bought as a second home in the Dominican Republic.
