We have the pleasure to invite you to be part of the first “Caribbean Wellness Tourism Challenges and Opportunities“ conference to be held at the Hotel Sanctuary Cap Cana, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, May 14-15, 2020. Punta Cana Wellness is the first wellness tourism directory in the Caribbean.

Our goal is to promote wellness tourism worldwide and increase wellness travelers’ visits by listing and offering wellness services within the Dominican Republic plus exclusive wellness vacation packages.

Punta Cana Wellness has taken the initiative to organize this conference with the support of Global Advertising official Marketing Partner. The Wellness Tourism Association and The Global Wellness Institute and many more institutions.

Our primary goal is to engage all participants in a conversation that will lead to the development of a “Caribbean wellness tourism model— offer.” A model that will generate year—round tourist visits, leading to a steady growth of our local communities, and the preservation of our natural resources.
