    Altos de Chavon

    You first stop will be at the famous Altos de Chavon village - a captivating, man-made architectural wonder. The town is a 16th century replica of a Mediterranean village perched high above the Chavon River. The village was designed by Dominican architect Jose Antonio Caro and created by Italian master designer and cinematographer Roberto Coppa. Dominican artisans handcrafted the stone pathways, decorative ironwork, furniture and enchanting buildings, reviving almost forgotten crafts of metal work and stone carving. Under Coppa´s direction, each stone was hand cut, each wooden door frame was handcrafted and each wrought-iron detail was hand-forged. Construction of the village began in 1976 and the inauguration celebrated in 1982 with the concert of Frank Sinatra at the amphitheater.

    Catamaran Trip

    Feel the breeze and enjoy marvellous views of the Caribbean sea on board the catamaran that will take you to the Saona island.

    Saona Island

    Swim and snorkel in the crystal turquoise waters, chill on the white beach, drink coconut water, buy local souvenirs and feel yourself like a star on the Saona Island! Here you will find one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, that has been chosen on many occasions by filmmakers and advertisers looking for a stereotypical desert island setting for their film or advertisement.

    Traditional Dominican Lunch

    Treat yourself to the BBQ buffet lunch with typical Dominican food.

    Free Drinks

    You can enjoy a range of local beverages free of charge at our open bar.
