Punta Cana Food and Wine Festival is back for its second straight year. Amstar Data Maintenance Specialist and Dominican hospitality ambassador Luicewil Ramirez tells us about this celebration of the fine arts of food & wine.
Punta Cana is a true Caribbean oasis. It possesses the same breathtaking beauty that often seems like if it were only a dream; a kaleidoscope of blue and green hues, crystalline waters, soft white sand beaches, and an explosion of tropical colors all in a blissfully, otherworldly tranquility.
But this is just one aspect of what makes Punta Cana such a beloved vacation hot spot in the Caribbean.
For the second consecutive year, the Punta Cana Food and Wine Festival returns to the Dominican Republic. From the creators of Taste of Santo Domingo, this world-class celebration of culinary genius and the benefits of fermented grapes will be held on June 6 and 7 at the Paradisus Punta Cana and Paradisus Palma Real resorts in Punta Cana.
