“Vacation Like a Kardashian” Contest in the Dominican Republic
|Casa de Campo is the host of a Kardashian themed contest in the Dominican Republic.|
The Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism and Casa de Campo Resort in La Romana recently hosted the infamous Kardashian family, on two episodes of E!’s hit show “Keeping up with the Kardashians.” To celebrate, the Ministry of Tourism announced its “Vacation like a Kardashian” giveaway, where contestants can enter to win a Kardashian-style vacation mirroring the scenes and locations enjoyed by the family.
The prizewinner will receive a four-night stay for two in an Elite Balcony room in La Romana, with breakfast lunch and dinner at resort restaurants at Casa de Campo, plus unlimited horseback riding, tennis and non-motorized sports, one round of golf and a one-hour massage for each person at Casa de Campo’s spa.

That’s not the only celebrity connection this Caribbean hotspot is currently enjoying. The Samaná Peninsula and Las Terrenas are currently being featured on NBC’s series “Love in the Wild.” Hosted by model and author Jenny McCarthy, the series challenges romantic relationships with exhilarating quests on the Northeast Coast of Dominican Republic. The show airs every Tuesday at 10 EST until July 24.
