It’s the most wonderful time of the year! New Years Eve in Casa de Campo is PHENOMENAL!! Until you have welcomed the New Year with numerous champagne toasts, whilst boat hopping in Palmilla, then partied until sunrise over Playa Minitas – you have not truly partied!
Although there are many ways and means to celebrate the arrival of a New Year, if you are lucky enough to be in Casa de Campo, this is my suggested time-line for the day:
1. Palmilla Boat Party (10am-8pm)
Beg, borrow, steal or stow away, 10am may seem like a little early to be partying, but the party in Palmilla is simply unmissable! Literally hundreds, possibly thousands of Casa de Campo villa owners and their guests head to Palmilla – the beautiful natural swimming pool and partying hot spot! Palmilla will be over-run with boats of all sizes, and champagne swilling party animals. There will be music blaring from each and every boat, with several who may even have their own DJ – on New Years Eve, Palmilla is THE place to be seen. Click here for photos of Party Palmilla!

2. Dinner with family and friends (9pm-12:30am)
After a long hard day partying at Palmilla you will no doubt share a New Years Eve dinner with your family – whether you dine at a private villa or at one of Casa de Campo’s fine restaurants you’re bound to have a good time. At this point don’t worry about rushing off to Minitas for the stroke of midnight – spend that magical moment with your family – the next party doesn’t really get going until 12:30 – 1am anyway!
3. Praia Party and Playa Minitas (12:30am-7am)
From the high of Palmilla to the slight lull at dinner, at the Praia Beach party it’s time to kick the party back into high gear! This year’s party we predict will get started around 1am with various DJ’s, live music and fireworks. Entrance is USD$100 per person (open bar), but if you plan on partying until dawn you may want to consider buying a table – USD$3,000 includes 10 tickets and far more alcohol than 10 people can safely drink! Party until sunrise!
4. Buffet Breakfast at the Lago Grill!
The best and only way to really recover from so much excessive partying is to join the early morning golfers for breakfast at the Lago Grill – don’t worry about getting changed, just go straight there in your party clothes. Trust me you won’t be the only girl hobbling about barefoot looking slightly dishevelled – I’ll be there too!
Casa de Campo Living and CasaLife look forward to seeing you through every step of the party! I have my camera ready!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
