A New Push to Regrow Caribbean Reefs

By the Caribbean Journal staff

Recent years have seen the growth of a number of initiatives aimed at regrowing coral reef in the Caribbean — most notably the Coral Restoration Foundation in Bonaire.

Now, another drive has launched to help rebuild coral reefs.

The nonprofit Tourism Cares, the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA), and the Grupo Puntacana Foundation in the Dominican Republic have partnered on a Coral Restoration Capacity Building Project to assist three Caribbean destinations whose reefs suffered serious damage during last year’s hurricanes.

Two individuals each from Dominica, the British Virgin Islands and the US Virgin Islands recently spent a week in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, completing a Coral First Aid Certification training program. Additional individuals from the affected territories will now be trained by these graduates to assist with major restoration efforts.

Coral reefs have declined by as much as 50 to 80 percent in the last 30 years.

“CHTA, through our affiliate Caribbean Alliance for Sustainable Tourism (CAST), has a longstanding working relationship with the Grupo Puntacana Foundation and we’re delighted to be able to draw upon the Foundation’s expertise to provide this training,” said Frank Comito, CHTA’s CEO and Director General.

Grupo Puntacana Foundation’s President, Frank Rainieri, was a founder of CAST.

“We have an environmental responsibility to regenerate these natural treasures because without reefs, there would be fewer beautiful beaches and without our beaches fewer tourists would visit, so coral gardening is both an ecological imperative as well as a significant economic driver for our region,” Comito said.

Upon completion of the Coral First Aid Certification these graduates are now able to, among other skills, identify, construct and prepare at least two different types of nursery propagation platforms; set up new nurseries; properly attach coral fragments for propagation; perform regular maintenance; collect performance data using established standardized procedures; and properly harvest and transport coral fragments and colonies.

A New Beach Hotel Opens in Puerto Rico

By the Caribbean Journal staff

While much of Puerto Rico’s tourism industry is, unsurprisingly, concentrated in San Juan, the island is starting to see smaller, harder-to-reach destinations growing, too.

That includes the southwestern beach town of Cabo Rojo, which is now home to a new place to stay: the Boho Beach Club.

The new 61-room hotel has opened its doors after an investment of $4.5 million, according to officials from the Puerto Rico Tourism Company.

“It is gratifying to note that, in keeping with the objective of the CTPR, to improve the offer and expand it throughout the Island, Puerto Rican entrepreneurs are showing an enthusiastic awakening in the tourism industry, as members of the Boho Beach Club Group are doing with the establishment of the first boutique hotel in the Cabo Rojo area,” said Carla Campos, executive director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company. “This, undoubtedly, expands the offer in an innovative way in that region that enjoys excellent demand.”

The hotel represents the transformation of a former hostel into a chic beach hotel, with 61 well-appointed rooms along with an on-site eatery and a “brunch all day” menu concept.
