Sustainable Development in the Dominican Republic
In 1994, we created the Puntacana Ecological Foundation to protect and preserve the natural resources of the Punta Cana region, while contributing to the sustainable development of the Dominican Republic. We later complimented our commitment to environmental stewardship with the creation of the Puntacana Foundation, a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to improving conditions in the local communities of the Punta Cana region, primarily through programs in health, education, and cultural activities. Since the beginning, both foundations have taken into account their past experiences in different projects to improve the conditions at a regional level and in a diversity of areas with environmental programs and community activities. In 2016 they were unified under one single identity, Grupo Puntacana Foundation. We invite you to visit www.puntacana.org to learn more about our diverse environmental and social programs. We also invite you to visit Grupo Puntacana Foundation Facebook page.
At Tortuga Bay, we treat our environment with the utmost respect as we help you make the most of your time spent here at paradise. From our Responsible Luxury practices of the Grupo Puntacana Foundation to the golf course watering preservation system we are committed to making the world a better place.
