A hot sun and the very refreshing sea breeze were the perfect natural contrast, so that thousands of people enjoyed the color and creativity of the Puerto Plata Carnival to the fullest.
Hundreds of tourists of different nationalities were at the said event where the customs and traditions of the Dominican people are exhibited, evoking ancestral roots and everyday issues. The presence of the provincial Governor, Claritza Rochtte Peralta de Senior, congressman Emíl Durán, the regional director of the Ministry of Tourism, Carlos Atahualpa Paulino, the municipal mayor, Roquelito García, the president of UCAPPLATA, Yanco Souffront, among others, was notorious.
