The Dominican Republic is considered a green country, endowed with beautiful vegetation and wildlife in its forests, rivers and beaches. However, because of the steady reduction of natural vegetation in rivers, caused by improper handling of forest products and as a consequence of the effects of climate change, the flora has been severely affected over the years.

Because of the vegetation reduction in the Dominican Republic, and in order to make this world a greener place, Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa joined up with the Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales of the Dominican Republic in order to support their mission of promoting and stimulating the activities of preservation, protection, restoration and sustainable use of our natural resources.
In July a team of 30 staff members from Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa teamed up with 10 representatives from the Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales and visited the wildlife refuge known as Rio Maimón located in the La Altagracia Province of the city of Higüey. Together, the group was able to plant 250 Mahogany (Swietenia mahagoni) trees, which is native to the Dominican Republic and considered the national tree.
This is just one of many ways in which Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa continues to reaffirm its sustainable commitment to the preservation of our natural areas, which has made us a Rainforest Alliance Certified ™ resort.
Secluded in a lush tropical paradise, Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa raises the bar on the all-inclusive experience and provides stunning ocean views and palm-studded beaches surrounded by flourishing vegetation.
