Casa de Campo® Resort & Villas
One of the country’s top tourist destinations, La Romana is defined by sugar cane fields, golfing, beaches and diving. On the drive there, tourists pass sprawling sugar cane fields and lush tropical landscapes.
In the 1970s, the largest sugar mill in the Americas decided to venture into the hospitality industry and opened the resort of Casa de Campo. Today, Casa de Campo is famous for its world class golfing and the artists’ village of Altos de Chavón, which features galleries and quaint shops. While golf put La Romana on the tourism map, most visitors today visit it for the beaches and the comfort of its resort.
Bayahibe is the gateway to Saona Island in the National Park of the East, which is the most visited natural attraction in the country. Isla Saona is the home of of the rare Bayahibe Rose, a cactus-shrub that was named the National Flower in 2011.
