Saona Island: A Beacon of Sustainable Tourism

The Dominican Republic is renowned for its stunning landscapes and vibrant culture, but did you know that it’s also on the forefront of sustainable tourism? Saona Island, a gem in the nation’s crown, is transforming into a model of eco-friendly travel.

Recently, a significant agreement was signed to ensure Saona Island’s sustainable development. This pact, a collaboration between the Ministry of Tourism and various organizations, marks a pivotal step towards harmonizing tourism with environmental stewardship.

 

A Community’s Journey Towards Sustainability

The heart of this transformation lies in Mano Juan, Saona’s local community. With the support of the Fundación Sostenibilidad 3Rs, the project, named “Saona, Paraíso Sostenible,” began in late 20221. It’s a testament to the community’s commitment to change, already evident in their evolving waste management practices.

 

Alliances for a Greener Tomorrow

Key players like Cervecería Nacional Dominicana and Grupo Industrial de Fibras KP have joined forces to foster an eco-friendly environment, improving the quality of life for over 350 residents and enhancing the visitor experience1. The project aims to mitigate environmental impacts, promote sustainable practices, and encourage community-led financial self-management.

 

The Impact on Tourism

Saona Island, attracting over a million visitors annually, is poised to become a sustainable tourism haven. This initiative not only benefits Mano Juan but also significantly influences the national tourism industry.
