This is a must see destination when visiting La Romana, Dominican Republic. What a great way to spend an afternoon exploring the historic site, shopping at the local merchants, and tasting all the great dining options available.

Altos de Chavon is definitely one of the top 5 places you need to see when in Dominican Republic. It's an amazingly beautiful place with a breathtaking scenic view. If you love History, this recreation of a medieval town will be very enjoyable.

The place is definitely not worth spending $25 per person just to be able to walk around the little village. The place looks desolate, no one lives there, there are just shops and restaurants.It may be a different story if you're there to see a concert and maybe they waive the entrance fee.

We spent a few hours in Altos de Chavon. The views were spectacular! The amphitheatre was unbelieveable- Elton John was playing there the next night. The shops and artists' boutiques were quaint. I wish that we could have spent more time there that day.

Consider a small Italian villa in the Caribbean, with awesome views , sightseeing, and great food. It is a must if you are visiting Casa de Campo, and the famous amphitheater where Frank Sinatra, Sting and others...

Me and my wife got married here and it was spectacular. The town is unforgettable with views that are worth a million dollars. We couldn't be happier.

I don't regret having visited Altos de Chavón, but there is not a lot to see and definitely you don't need more than an hour to take the tour. There a few "artist" shops when you can get hand made paintings and jewelry (not sure even it was hand made), and a chocolate store.
