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.

We were going to book a tour to see this and glad we didn't. We took the bus from the ship to Altos for $7 round trip. We were able to visit it at our leisure. It was a beautiful place and were able to stay in between the tours that arrived. The only negative was the at the restaurant... More

Went to Catalina Island and Altos De Chavon. Bad experience, booked tour through hotel. The tour company didn't speak much English. They made stops we didn't know about. Spoke mostly in Spanish but were told they would translate to English. The music on the boat ride was insanely loud and the water coming back was rough to the point we... More

Not only can you see the beauty in the hands that put it together from volcanic rock but mostly the beauty that was created by God. The place was remarkable.
