Casa de Campo is two hours east of Santo Domingo on the south coast overlooking the Caribbean shore. We rented a villa that came with a maid/cook and butler, and we felt like royals!
The neighbors here drive fancy yachts!
A replica of a 16th century Mediterranean village sits on a cliff overlooking the Chavon river and Pete Dye golf courses.
Of course the village has its own Greek amphitheater.
The Dominicans think it's too cold in winter to go to the beach, but we thought mid 80's at Playa Minitas was perfect!
We also enjoyed our "beach bed" at Juan Dolio, which is halfway between Casa de Campo and Santo Domingo.
Next up, Santo Domingo!
