The Ministry of Tourism is to sponsor the First annual Rubirosa Ambassador Polo Cup, to be held on Sunday, June 10th, in La Romana province.
“Dominican Republic is being rediscovered as a new destination by tourists, celebrities and filmmakers alike. Having a presence in the 2012 season of the Santa Barbara Polo Club and recognizing the international success of Dominican polo icon Porfirio Rubirosa, will emphasize the equestrian lifestyle, polo players and variety of other luxury activities that Dominican Republic has to offer,” said Magaly Toribio, Vice Minister of International Promotion, Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism.
The event will celebrate the Dominican Republic’s legendary roots in polo, honors Dominican Diplomat-playboy and legendary polo player, Porfirio Rubirosa, and promotes the island nation as a destination offering luxury and sophisticated resorts.
Situated on the country’s magnificent Southeast Coast, Casa de Campo Resort in La Romana is where Porfirio Rubirosa played polo and is the regional hot spot for this sport.
