La Romana is one of the best provinces in the Dominican Republic for all inclusive vacations. The capital city of the Dominican Republic shares the La Romana name, and is actually the third largest city in the entire country.
Essentially, a visit to La Romana can be rather multidimensional, but it will definitely include images of sugar cane fields, crystal clear turquoise waters, astounding architecture and maybe a dolphin sighting or two if you’re lucky.
La Romana has one of the largest resorts in Casa de Campo that has played host as an all inclusive vacation site to many of the world’s rich and famous, including dignitaries, world leaders and many high profile business people, athletes and entertainers.
Casa de Campo is also one of the largest and most famous golf destinations in the world, featuring four internationally known golf courses. The “Tooth of the Dog” is the most famous internationally ranked golf course among Caribbean vacation enthusiasts, and also considered to be in the Top 100 worldwide. “Tooth of the Dog” was designed by internationally recognized golf course icon Pete Dye.
In addition to golfing, Casa de Campo is known as one of the best all inclusive Caribbean vacation spots in the world—Apple Vacations sells tons of all inclusive vacation packages to Caribbean travelers seeking an experience in the Dominican Republic. Bill Clinton, Elizabeth Taylor, Shakira and Alex Rodriguez are just a few of the world’s famous celebrities that have vacationed in one of Casa de Campo’s all inclusive resorts.
Another area many all inclusive vacation travelers are attracted to in La Romana is Altos de Chavon. Altos de Chavon is a hub of the arts and home to a local university—it’s a re-creation of a 15th century Mediterranean village, complete with cobblestone pathways, unique shopping districts, world-recognized exhibits of sculptures and art, and a large amphitheatre of red stone that’s built into the ground. Sting, Placido Domingo, Heart, Santana—these are just a few of the entertainers that have played the amphitheatre in Altos de Chavon.
Isla Catalina is another amazing attraction in La Romana—especially if you’re a diving or snorkeling enthusiast. Isla Catalina is only six square miles and it’s completely surrounded by a coral reef nature preserve, making it one of the finest diving landscapes in the Caribbean.
If you’re particularly adventurous, check out Fun Fun Cave, located in Hato Mayor just outside of La Romana—they’re some of the largest caves in the Caribbean and actually extent almost four miles underground!
