Minitas Beach Club

Next week, Monday, July 4th, is American Independence Day, so why not celebrate at Casa de Campo! While it’s not a holiday that is 100% celebrated in the Dominican Republic, Casa de Campo has become “home” to many American families that come to this island country to live or vacation. But our Casa Americans are no less patriotic than those in the “mainland”, and when the 4th of July, or American Independence Day, comes around, Casa de Campo gets festive as well!

The 4th of July is often filled with parades, barbecues, fireworks, watermelons, hot dog eating contests, trips to the beach, and impromptu baseball games. Families, friends, and neighbors often get together to enjoy scarfing down good food, talking, and lighting off colorful fireworks.

Given that our Casa de Campo community is always excited about celebrating with a great party, we encourage you to not miss any of the activities that Casa de Campo has prepared for next weekend starting on Friday, July 1st until Monday, July 4th!
