Casa de Campo loves cats. No, not cool cats, but the feline variety. You can find them in most areas of the resort. Being in a tropical paradise and with so many woods around, the mice population was having a real "field day". But, most pest control is also harmful to this perfect ecosystem. So, people resorted to the most "natural" pest control possible: cats. People started introducing cats into the villas and tourist areas. It worked. The cats are everywhere and the mice are controlled.

There isn't any better place to observe these feline guests than Altos de Chavon. They are everywhere. Black one, white ones, black and white ones. All kinds and sizes. Some are very friendly since they are used to the many tourists that visit this beautiful artist village. They are fed so they are happy. And they have the run of the place. They are in the shops, restaurants, amphitheater...yes, everywhere.

It is also very interesting that there are many pigeons there and they seem to have an understanding with the cats. They all tolerate each other. It isn’t unusual for the pigeons to be walking around the cats. What you won't see much of in Casa de Campo these days is mice.

Everyone traveling to the Americas had to stop here first. Some stayed adding to the cultural flavour of the island and it's fusion cuisine.

The lush tropical gardens created by the landscaping of the luxury homes, parks, golf courses and hotel, and the humidity these gardens have added to the area have changed the climate in Casa de Campo and La Romana. You could say it has created a micro-climate adding a diverse vegetation and fauna to an area that used to be semi-arid. There are more bugs, more lizards, more seed, and more nectar. All this is very attractive to the different birds that now call Casa de Campo their home. Some birds, like the Hispaniola parakeet were endangered and now are thriving in this area. On any given day you can see large flocks of them flying by making their usual ruckus. It is a beautiful and unexpected by-product of home development. Every new villa built adds more lush gardens to the tropical paradise that is Casa de Campo. The thatched roofs in the entrance to Casa de Campo are home to a very large flock of swallows ready to welcome you, a site to see in the early morning or late afternoon.

Altos de Chavón is not just a an artist village built in the style of an European medieval village. It is the artistic realization of Roberto Copa, a former movie set designer whose high standards and attention to details was unequaled. The outer wall surrounding the amphitheater was built, torn down and rebuilt because he wasn't satisfied with the rock patterns. No stone was overlooked as each stone was studied and planned as a part of the big picture. And what a big picture it is.

Jennifer Lopez (J.LO) and Alex Rodriguez (A.ROD) are both used to living the good life, which is why Casa Palma was their number one option when visiting La Romana on April 15th 2017. Joining them where Max and Emme, who also got to enjoy the tropical luxury villa for 10 exclusive days.

J.Lo's first concert in the Dominican Republic included her all-time hits, making everyone dance to her songs for an hour-long concert. The girl from the Bronx brought her latin moves and glamourous style to the Altos de Chávon amphitheater, causing electrifying emotions on her local and international fans.

The crowd erupted in excitement when guest stars 'Gente de Zona' joined stage to perform "Tu y Yo", and directly after, ex-hubbie Marc Anthony performed "Olvidame y Pega la Vuelta" with the mother of his kids. The two totally rocked the stage together, causing the crowd to go absolutely wild while continuously shouting, "¡Beso!"

Thanks for the visit J-Rod! We hope you enjoyed your lavish vacations at Casa Palma :)

Dominican Republic's gorgeous sandy beaches are the home of the colorful Parrot Fish, responsible for creating most of the white sand beaches tourists and locals enjoy. The Parrot Fish bites off algae from the coral reefs, creating up to 200 pounds of sand a year.

If you are visiting the Dominican Republic, we ask you NOT to order this dish, since over fishing is almost vanishing the parrot fish from Dominican coasts and threatening the existence of its beaches.
