The soft, powdery sand of Casa de Campo’s Mintas Beach hugs the sea like the salt rim on a margarita glass. Here, bronzed couples and families lounge under white umbrellas; black snorkels poke through the water, the slight slap of fins the only sound against the gentle waves. This 7,000-acre resort puts you in a blissed-out state—fast—but excels in moments of excitement, too: The thwack of a golf club hitting the ball onto championship greens met directly by the sea, the gallop of a horseback ride through rolling hills, the deep horn blow of a million-dollar yacht pulling into La Marina.
