Now it is confirmed: Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic will see scheduled VH services from 25 may.
Schedule is as follows and available in GDS already:
Thursdays and Sundays
Aircraft is a MD82.
Fares from CCS start at 190 US$ oneway.
Finally a new destination. I hope it will be used a lot by venezuelan tour operator in order to bring some more tourists to the Dominican north coast.
Aeropostal is already operating 10 weekly MD services to Santo Domingo.

It seems the Dominican Republic - Venezuela market is a very profitable one.
Since Venezuela grants Panamá 5th rights to only one destination and PTY-SDQ do quite well, there were some talks about a possible PTY-MAR-SDQ; but I really doubt CM will add another flight to SDQ via Venezuela or add MAR anytime soon.
One market Aeropostal should study is CCS-PTY late evenning / PTY-CCS early morning, even thrice weekly it could work.

Quoting 2travel2know (Reply 3): One market Aeropostal should study is CCS-PTY late evenning / PTY-CCS early morning, even thrice weekly it could work.
I am quite sure that PTY is the next new destination announcement we are going to read here. And as it will have to connect to intercontinental traffic I a sure it will leave CCS in the late afternoon, around 17:00. The only question then is, if it returns the next day in the morning or the same evening.
Maybe they go CCS-PTY-SJO, returning next morning to again connect to european flights in CCS.
