“Nice but nothing special.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

We took a boat trip from Altes De Chavon down the river, it was nice with crystal clear waters, but for us, that's all it represented.

“Great natural scenary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

The view from Altos de Chavon is breathtaking! You should try to get your picture from Altos de Chavon village with the river behind you. The river is cristal clear and surrounded by forest.
