In April 2017 Drake enjoyed some down time in the Dominican Republic. After finishing his European tour the Canadian rapper escaped to an ocean front lodge in the luxury resort of Casa de Campo. Just days earlier his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez was spotted in the same resort, it is rumoured that she even rented the same villa.
The Dominican Republic is a hidden jewel and often gets overlooked, but with its lush green rolling hills, palm-fringed secluded beaches and buzzing nightlife, this is not a destination to be ignored.
Casa de Campo, on the south east coast of the island, is the main port of entry and the luxurious resort and marina can host luxury yachts up to 76.2 metres. But if you can bear to pull yourself away from the stunning resort, the country has plenty more to offer.
Santo Domingo is the country's vibrant capital. With it’s winding, cobblestone streets, traditional shopping and plenty of drinking and dancing, it’s the perfect place to get a taste of this unspoilt corner of the Caribbean.
Punta Cana is a stunning stretch of coastline on the south west side of the island. Model turned actress Elsa Patasky was seen enjoying this idyllic part of the country in February 2017 whilst shooting for fashion magazine Glamour. Posting pictures of herself and friends relaxing in the pool and running along white sandy beaches.
