Sometimes, the hardest part about picking a vacation destination can be satisfying all the musts on your list. You want to relax and recharge but also get out of your comfort zone and have an adventure, perhaps with a side of athletics? And you want to experience a different culture, too? And fantastic food? Knock-out sunny weather and pristine white beaches? And the getaway has to be family-friendly as well?

We’re here to tell you that, yes, you can have it all. Just head to Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic, where golf, equestrian adventures, massages, skeet shooting and hunting are offered alongside kids camps, a soccer club, a luxe spa and even a marina. Those looking to travel back in time can even explore a replica of a 16th-Century Mediterranean village — complete with cobblestone streets, live musicians and star gazing.

And after you’ve burned all those calories on the court — or while exploring the endless activities that Casa de Campo has to offer — you’ll have a great excuse to expand your palate and try some of the local cuisine at Lago. Of course, if your want-it-all mentality extends to the culinary experience, the resort also has a gourmet pizza place, a sushi restaurant, an outpost of Le Cirque….
