History of Casa de Campo

Casa de Campo has an intriguing history, rooted in the early days of the 20th century when it was a sugar mill town owned by the South Puerto Rico Sugar Company. It wasn't until Alvaro Carta, the sugar mill director, had the vision to transform it into a luxury resort destination, that its transformation began in the 1970s. By 1980, the illustrious Altos de Chavón, the artisanal village within Casa de Campo, was inaugurated with the help of Roberto Copa, a former Paramount Pictures set designer, and Charles Bluhdorn, a philanthropist and industrialist. The design of Altos de Chavón replicated a 16th-century Mediterranean village and was constructed primarily using local materials and techniques, which not only gave it authenticity but also sparked a renewed appreciation for the region's heritage.


The vision didn't stop there. With the addition of world-renowned golf courses designed by Pete Dye, Casa de Campo solidified its reputation as a premier golfing destination. The Teeth of the Dog course, in particular, has been consistently ranked among the top courses worldwide. Over the years, the resort has hosted an array of affluent guests and celebrities, further establishing Casa de Campo as a beacon of luxury in the Caribbean.

Moreover, the Altos de Chavón School of Design, affiliated with Parsons School of Design in New York, helps nurture future generations of artists, designers, and creatives.
