On special assignment for TheTravelBite.com, I hopped on a plane from Miami and jetted over to a charming coastal town called La Romana in the Dominican Republic. The theme for the trip: how to experience the “sporting life” at a luxury resort called Casa de Campo.
Here’s a shot of the resort’s gorgeous private beach:
The resort offered gorgeous accommodations, ranging from private suites to entire homes. And there are six restaurants on the property, including La Caña Restaurant & Lounge by Il Circo and The Beach Club by Le Cirque.
Check out this view we had at breakfast:
They don’t call it the “Sporting Life” for nothing. The resort features 90 holes of Pete Dye-designed golf courses, including the infamous Teeth of the Dog, which is ranked No. 1 in Latin America. I can’t say much about my golf game, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take a group selfie on such a well-known locale! There’s also a 245-acre skeet shooting center, tennis club and equestrian club.
When you’re ready for a little R&R and just want to spend some time soaking up that Caribbean sunshine, the pool is the place to be.
This was my first visit to the Dominican Republic and it won’t be my last. Not only is Casa de Campo a sport aficionado’s paradise, it’s a resort where the staff go out of their way to provide excellent service. Visit TheTravelBite.com for more photos and tips from my trip.

Full disclosure – my trip was hosted by Casa de Campo, but my thoughts, opinions and enthusiasm for travel are entirely my own.
