This post is also available in: Spanish

I love Casa de Campo! The parties and events we have here, whether in La Palapa in the Marina or at the La Romana Country Club or in Altos de Chavon are always fabulous, but with the next big event to look forward to being the Fundacion Mir family weekend in August – its time to look further afield for a little light entertainment! So here is my at-a-glance guide to everything going on in Santo Doming in June!

Whenever I go to Santo Domingo I always stay at the Hotel Santo Domingo, its centrally located, the service is good and I like the breakfast – it has an omelet bar. So, if you decide to spend the night the Hotel Santo Domingo is a good option, especially as they have extended special rates for readers. Please give them a ring on 809-221-3672 for details or reservations, just let them know we sent you and they will give you a special rate.  😉
