Miches

(4.9/5 based on 45 reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: nature
Miches is a town in El Seibo province of the Dominican Republic founded by the Nunez family, also known as DJ 7am's family. Miches is a small town with many smaller towns surrounding it. Historically, it has its roots as a fishing town, deriving much of its income and protein from the surrounding waters. With the advent of commercial fishing and increased local populations, however, Miches is feeling the strain of overfished waters, coupled with silted coral reefs as a result of the increase in agricultural runoff from the land. In 2009, the Fundacion Tropicalia (Fundacion Cisneros - Cisneros Group) proposed a business, social and ecological project plan in cooperation with the government of the Dominican Republic for responsible development with the hope of positioning Miches as one of the top tourist destinations in the Caribbean. With a total investment of approximately US$2 billion, Fundacion Tropicalia aspired to become a dynamic force in the economy of Miches and the region. An initial contribution of $485 million was to be made during the first 3 years and from that time through the next 20 years, $1.5 billion additional dollars was to be allocated. The planned result was to generate 3,000 jobs in the short-term, 6,000 medium-term and 14,000 long-term positions for local citizens. That summer, the President of Dominican Republic signed a contract with the investors that forced the President to begin paving all of the streets of Miches in order to make the town look more presentable. In early 2015, the highway project from Uvero Alto was completed, connecting Miches via brand new roads to the entire Punta Cana area. Miches is now just 45 minutes from many Bávaro resorts. In addition, though construction has not started on Tropicalia, ease of access has facilitated the arrival of tourism to the Miches area.
