nice little village, scenic view.

Nice village with scenic view of the Chavon river. Little church - Michael Jackson married here. Great little restaurants with outside seating.

The village of Altos de Chavon was so beautiful and exotic. There really aren't any other words for it. Definitely worth checking out. Lots of interesting history about it, too. The tour guides were very informative and it was appropriately priced. We really enjoyed our visit there.

Amazed by the accuracy and detail of the architecture. Truly felt like I was walking thru a 16th century Spanish village

Overlooking the Rio Chavon, this reconstruction of an Italian medieval village is a bit bizarre at first - especially as it was very quiet when we visited. In fact, it was a bit like wandering onto a film set of a 1970s programme. The well maintained gardens lead to this charming tourist spot. With interesting museum, quaint church , little... More

To get to this beautiful village, you need to pass through hotel Casa De Campo. You arrive at the gate, you to go their welcome center and show your ID. If you do not have ID, you will be turned away. It is about a 10-15 minutes ride to the village. I forgot the entrance fee but it would be... More

We have been staying at Casa de Campo and it's a very short drive to Altos de Chavon village. We were very disappointed with the resort food. We were excited to have the best views and our best meal of the week at The Club at Altos de Chavon! Beautiful river views and excellent service.

So unusual place - a river that flow into Atlantic Ocean and you see it how it is, old town of artists on the top of a green hill... really leaves unforgettable feeling...

The views of the Chavon River below and the lush vegetation are awesome. The village itself is wonderful. It is so pretty. The architecture is very nice. Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie were married in the church there, which is quaint and quite lovely. Watch out for the cobblestones. I was pushing someone in a wheelchair and found the place... More

25 US$ entrance for a fake village with some shops. Ok, the vue on the Rio Chavon is nice, ok the place is well maintained, We mostly liked the little taino museum (about the old native indians) which was nice.

It was a nice man made village with more variety for shopping that in Romana...if you like that kind of thing. The river was nice with some sightings of local wildlife.
