Plans For The Outdoor Swimming Pool

For a traveler such as myself, I get to the airport with enough time to get through security and get to the plane. Once I land, I’m through the airport as fast as possible. It’s not a place I would consider hanging out. It’s just not my thing to take in the pool at the airport.

But I can sympathize with people who live their lives on the road. The more amenities an airport can offer, the better the travel experience is and I can relate to that. So, what’s the purpose of a pool though?

The elite travelers who like VIP everything would now have a pool to sit around and brag about. They can even change over real quick if they have time and jump in for a few seconds.

But the video makes a very good point. If you are a traveler, you have to deal with different traveling issues all the time. An airport pool is one way to deal, and other airports have already figured that out. So, the Punta Cana International Airport is not the first to have a pool.
