Rich in Culture
A SENSE OF PLACE
The Dominican Republic is more than a stunning Caribbean destination; it is a land defined by friendly people, vibrant culture, and a unique history. With origins dating back centuries, Hispaniola was first inhabited by the Taino Indians. The arrival of Columbus in 1492 marked the beginning of European presence in the Americas. The Grand Admiral himself described the island as the most beautiful land that human eyes had ever seen. Two hours away from Playa Grande, Santo Domingo, the capital city, was founded in 1496 by Columbus’ brother, Bartholomew, and is the oldest continuously inhabited European settlement in the Americas. Today, the country’s rich history lives on through the architecture, culture, and warm, gracious people. Playa Grande Golf and Ocean Club brings together the finest of Caribbean living.

DESTINATION DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
LA COSTA VERDE
On the island’s northern shores lies La Costa Verde–the Green Coast. Home to sweeping, lush, varied landscape, La Costa Verde offers an exuberant mix of local culture and history. Centrally located between cheerful beach towns and the vibrant Samaná Peninsula, Playa Grande sits along nearly seven miles of continuous Atlantic seacoast.
Founded by Christopher Columbus in 1492, the Dominican Republic is home to many ancient sites. Scuba dive into the sparkling, turquoise blues and find famous sunken shipwrecks–the Astron and Conde de Tolosa are only two of the 16–or discover cave drawings by Taino Indians while swimming among the various marine life. The island is home to landmarks of worldwide cultural and historical significance, and its waters are a treasury of ancient history and natural wonders awaiting exploration.
As one of the top ten producers of coffee and cocoa beans, the Dominican Republic’s tropical climate provides rich and abundant agriculture, from sweeping cocoa trees to farmers markets brimful of lavish harvest. Delight in a sweet papaya, mango, coconut, or banana cut fresh from the tree, or enjoy fruit stands that line the roadside along the way to Playa Grande. Immersing in the local culinary traditions on the island is simple, and well worthwhile.
