“Altos de Chavon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

We went on a private tour to Altos de Chavon area, not to the School of Design itself. The views of the river gorge, the gardens and the ancient-looking buildings, amphiteater and other monuments are very pretty, all very well kept. Be aware that if you are staying at a hotel in the La Romana-Bayahibe area, if your hotel requests it by email Altos the Chavon tickets will only be $5 per person, instead of the normal $25. Children are free.

“Not impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2012

We visited with a cruise ship group. There was not a lot of activity, the stay was too long and the museum presentations were not interesting.

“School of Art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

This school is for students that are from other countries that want to learn the art and cannot afford it. They survive on donations from rich people
