Health and Wellness
At Casa de Campo Resort and Villas, your safety and wellbeing is always a top priority. We work closely with the Ministry of Public Health and Social Assistance of the Dominican Republic (SESPAS), the Ministry of Tourism in the Dominican Republic (MITUR), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States to ensure we are always up-to-date on current and ongoing health concerns. In addition, in the event of a medical emergency while staying with us, we have a state-of-the-art private hospital on site, staffed with medical professionals available 24/7.
We continue to monitor the Zika virus alerts and are working closely with local and international organizations to follow all precautionary measures. Casa de Campo has specific protocols in place including daily resort-wide insecticide spraying and year-round pest control inspections to proactively protect against mosquitoes. Additional preventative measures have been implemented including the removal of plants that attract mosquitoes as well as intensified fumigation treatments to all bodies of water, including lakes and fountains.
The Centers for Disease Control recommends ensuring you are up-to-date on routine vaccines before any foreign travel. Hepatitis A and B and typhoid vaccines are recommended for travel to the Caribbean.
There is a risk of mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue fever and Zika virus in the Dominican Republic. There are antimalarial medications available but there are no medications or vaccinations available for dengue fever and Zika virus. Casa de Campo has strict protocols in place including daily resort-wide insecticide spraying and year-round pest control inspections to proactively protect against mosquitoes. We also recommend that guests use insect repellent and wear long sleeves and pants when possible.
