9 Reasons Why Casa de Campo Is the Perfect Summer Destination
In the Dominican Republic, summer really has no end. But when the rest of the world catches up with us from June to September, we still have the advantage of hosting the best summer activities, events, and sports to indulge in. We give you nine reasons to plan a Casa de Campo summer getaway before this season is over.
9. Staying in is as cool as going out.
In a resort as big and fascinating as Casa de Campo, staying indoors might seem like a crazy proposal, but let us explain: even though 30°C / 86 F is considered a perfect temperature, some days the Caribbean summer can be too hot to handle. Plus, when you book an air-conditioned hotel room or a villa that features shaded pools and hot tubs, expansive movie theaters, modern game rooms, a personal chef, and cozy lounging areas, it’s hard to leave all that behind for more than half a day. So go ahead, don’t feel guilty about spending a lazy day at your home away from home.
8. Try your luck with outdoor sports.
After a day of resting in your Dominican villa or room, you will feel energized enough to give your all with some outdoor sports. Choose between tennis, shooting, or polo to test your skills with the aid of certified trainers.Spend a nice time competing with others or just playing solo!
7. Golf around the clock.
Golf is the king of sports at Casa de Campo. Whether you’re taking part in a tournament or just playing a friendly match, gratifying challenges wait ahead. On Saturdays, our Night Golf Party is the perfect option to keep playing with friends and family even after the sun goes down.
6. Activities for the whole family.
Summertime means your children are still enjoying their vacation days. Our resort welcomes all family members with open arms and with a range of entertainment options suited for their age. Choose between our specialized programs for toddlers, kids, tweens, and teens where they will engage in games, arts and crafts, pool time, contests, and sports with the new friends they make during their stay.
5. Sip on our signature cocktails.
Enough of the boring drinks you’ve tried before: the bartenders and mixologists at our bars and lounges are experts on creating the best tropical cocktails, inspired by our fresh fruits and our lush surroundings. First, relax with a cold beer at The 19th Hole after a round at Teeth of the Dog. Afterward, head to Coco Mar at Minitas Beach to taste the ultimate Piña Colada. Finally, try more of our rum-based cocktails while waiting for the most amazing sunsets on this side of the island at Minitas Beach Club & Restaurant.
4. Wander around Altos de Chavón.
Chavón’s immaculate cliffside setting lets the wind flow all day long through its streets, plazas, and corners. Discover the secrets of this gorgeous Mediterranean village with a leisurely afternoon stroll. Take time to appreciate the architecture, the artisanal shops, and the quaint bars and restaurants you will find along the way.
3. Take pleasure in al fresco dining.
Caribbean nights are warm but they tend to be breezier and fresher than daytime. Book your next Casa de Campo dinner under the stars at any of our signature restaurants. Enjoy a candlelit dinner overlooking the river at La Piazzetta, share Mediterranean appetizers near the Marina yachts at SBG, or dip your feet in the sand of Minitas Beach Club while the waves crash a few meters away.
2. Host your own yacht party.
Have you ever dreamt of spending a day at sea with your squad on the deck of a yacht? We’re all about making your dreams come true. Get to know two of the most crystalline and secluded beaches of the DR, Catalina Island or Palmilla Beach, by boat. Spend a day soaking up the sun, having fun with your friends, and enjoying a delicious on-the-go lunch. After mooring the yacht, take a walk through the beautiful alleys and shops of the Marina while deciding where to spend the rest of your perfect day.
1. Don’t leave the water!
Without a doubt, everyone will agree on one thing: Summer is best spend on the water. Get creative with our range of water sports, see different angles of La Romana province with our kayak tours and fishing excursions, or literally go under the sea in a snorkeling trip with our expert scuba instructors. Beach water, pool water, deep sea water… it’s time to refresh and reset on your next adventure.
