Iberostar Hotels & Resorts was present once again at the FIT with an innovative proposal for professionals in the sector and consumers, inviting them to enjoy new products in the Caribbean and a plastic-free and environmentally responsible experience in their resorts.
During the fair, Iberostar, in the hands of its Marketing Director for LATAM and the Dominican Republic, Yoanki Jesus Nieves Rodriguez, presented all the news of the hotel chain and highlighted the new differentials of its resorts in the Dominican Republic with the opening of the Coral Level at Iberostar Selection Bávaro and the renewal of Iberostar Selection Bávaro.

Laboratory of corals at Iberostar Selection Bávaro
In line with its leadership in responsible tourism, Iberostar consolidates its commitment to the environment and the oceans through Wave of Change, a genuine movement with three lines of action: elimination of single-use plastics, responsible consumption of fish and health Coastal By the end of 2019, the chain will have eliminated those of single-use plastics from the rooms of its hotels and in 2020 it undertakes to remove them from all areas of the hotels, as far as the law allows.
In relation to coastal health initiatives, its recently opened coral laboratory, located in the Iberostar Selection Bávaro, in the Dominican Republic is striking. It is a genetic coral bank designed to contribute to the protection of marine life against the global increase in temperatures and the pandemic that is devastating coral reefs by leaps and bounds. But this is not the only feature that makes it exceptional, but also has facilities on land that house 12 species and 180 individual corals. Following its commitment to promote a change of mentality regarding the oceans, Iberostar provides hotel guests and other visitors with access to the laboratory and turns these learning visits into fun moments for its younger guests through its children’s entertainment program and youthful Star Camp.
