“We’re definitely excited to host the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders in our hotel,” said Mariam Suarez, marketing manager for Barceló Bávaro Beach Resort. “Our resort encompasses the essence of Punta Cana – white-sand beaches, calm Caribbean waters, plush accommodations, gourmet dining and endless entertainment options. We know the cheerleaders will have a wonderful time shooting their 2013 calendar.”

During their stay, the cheerleaders enjoyed sumptuous pampering, authentic Dominican gastronomy, pristine beaches, glamorous rooms with panoramic views, and easy accessibility to Punta Cana’s unique recreational offerings.

The swimsuit calendar will be unveiled in August during the famous cheerleaders’ annual swimsuit fashion show in Miami. Fans will be able to follow the cheerleaders’ experiences in Dominican Republic through a television special and “Cheerleader of the Week” web features, which will run from August 2012 to January 2013.
