Love Is Blind S6 Has Turbocharged Interest In Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Season 6 of "Love Is Blind" has audiences enamored with couples like Johnny and Amy and Jimmy and Chelsea, to name a few. In a nutshell, contestants on the hit Netflix series try their luck at finding love without seeing the physical appearance of their potential match. If all goes well, the couples get engaged and honeymoon. In season 6, the couples were sent off to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. As a result, Islands found that Google searches for the Dominican Republic are up a whopping 700% and Punta Cana 300%.


This might not be surprising, given the show's popularity. For example, Season 2 of the "White Lotus" drastically increased Google searches for Sicily and ultimately had travelers wanting to stay at San Domenico Palace in Taormina, as featured in the series.

Punta Cana is under three hours from Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic's Capital. The stunning Caribbean destination has everything you want for an island vacation, including palm tree-lined beaches with white sand. As for where the love birds from "Love is Blind" honeymooned in Punta Cana, that honor goes to the TRS Turquesa Hotel.
