Women in tourism – Sublime Samana bringing opportunities to the local communities in Las Terrenas

The Centre Stage Project aims to put a focus on women’s empowerment within the tourism sector, including the involvement of public institutions and businesses, with the active support of civil society.

Our Spa Manager, Azucena Montes, reflects on the impact of creating opportunities to the local communities and how Sublime Samaná is proudly committed to it. 

This UNWTO project is being implemented in the Dominican Republic during 2022 in close cooperation with the Ministry of Tourism (MITUR) and different tourism businesses that have committed to improving the professional situation of women in tourism, leading efforts towards gender equality in the sector.
