Now here is a way to extend that vacation!
Thanks to a planned pool at the Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana airport — which serves as the gateway to a strip of beachfront resorts and has direct flights to NYC via JetBlue, United and Delta — fliers can cling to those last precious moments of vacation.
The under-construction swimming hole, designed by local architect Antonio Segundo Imbert to overlook an airstrip and parked planes, is slated to open in December as part of a VIP lounge.
Who gets to take a dip? First- and business-class passengers, to start with. Certain homeowners, club members and elite traveler pass-holders also gain access.
Plebes can join the fun with a $125-per-person entry for the day. (The price drops to $100 each if your group has three or more people.)
Despite the region’s hurricanes, the pool’s still on track.
