La Romana, Dominican Republic

One hour 45 minutes east of Santo Domingo is the city of La Romana, home to the understated elegance and graceful charm of the 7000-acre Casa de Campo resort, designed by Oscar de la Renta. Guests can relax in the luxuriant tropical setting, spending their time swimming, snorkeling, playing tennis, horseback riding, or engaging in a round of golf on one of the Caribbean’s finest courses.

Also part of the complex is Altos de Chavon, a recreation of a medieval Spanish village situated on a bluff overlooking the Rio Chavon. Its cobble stone streets are enhanced by lanterns and wrought-iron balconies, while courtyards are swathed with bougainvillea. In the village live a number of artists plying their trade, and there are handicraft shops and chic boutiques selling jewelry and fashions by such designers as Oscar de la Renta. Altos de Chavón also hosts major events in a 5000-seat Greek amphitheater, built in the traditional design of Epidaurus.
