Origin of the name: Cap Cana – The name derives from the French word “cap”, meaning “cape”, due to its location in the chain of capes known as “La Majagua”, between Cabo Engaño and Cabo San Rafael. The word “cana” is due to a large number of this type of palm in the Project. Thus, the name Cap Cana.
Why is it the new Caribbean destination? CAP CANA has all the necessary elements to be the luxury destination of the region: climate, Caribbean charm, the possibility of owning a property facing the beach, and enjoying the best golfing. In order to achieve this, it relies on a team of the best professionals (architects, designers, engineers, etc.) who put their knowledge and expertise at the service of the client. In the midst of nature and washed by crystal blue waters, the seal of exclusivity is engraved in all and each of the services offered by CAP CANA. CAP CANA is a way of indulging in the Caribbean lifestyle in a luxurious environment.
Cap Cana Marina – An International Destination For Yachting & Scuba Diving
One of the pillars of the project, is designed to be the most important marina in the Caribbean. The Grand Canal (almost sixty meters wide and five meters deep) will be the central axis, surrounded by luxury stores, exclusive restaurants, and five-star hotels. Transportation through these water thoroughfares will be by environment-friendly “Vaporetto” shuttles, an innovative system exclusively for transporting guests and visitors. The CAP CANA Marina will be built in three stages, representing a 96 million dollar investment. Once the third stage is completed, the marina will be able to birth 500 yachts. It will be the only full-service marina in a 400-kilometer radius between the Turks and Caicos and Puerto Rico, accommodating all types of yachts, including 150+ ft (50 m). In addition, it will offer maintenance services and port and customs authorities. Its privileged location in the Caribbean, close to the Mona Channel, one of the five main fishing destinations of the world, is enviable due to its proximity to the coast and its extended fishing season (March to October).
An unforgettable experience: Live golf in the hands of Jack Nicklaus. One of the best golf players of all times, Jack Nicklaus, known as the “Golden Bear”, winner of 20 of the main world golf tournaments and currently one of the most prominent golf course designers, has completed the design of one of three CAP CANA’s golf courses under Jack Nicklaus signature, for a total investment of 42 million dollars. With the most golf courses than any other country in the Caribbean, Dominican Republic has a privileged position in the world of golf. CAP CANA reinforces this prestigious reputation by having three Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses, becoming a unique destination to enjoy this sport. Punta Espada Golf Course is the first of the three golf courses and is destined to become the most spectacular of all three, considering that 8 of its 18 holes are by the sea, and 9 of the remaining 10 have a view of the Caribbean. Its topography incorporates the natural characteristics of the environment: coast, beach, coves, and greens, guaranteeing the enjoyment of golfers at all levels, including participants in world tournaments. Jack Nicklaus himself played the first round of golf at Punta Espada during the Grand Opening this past November 2006.
