This is one of the most beautiful places we recommed any traveler to visit. It is marvelous, quiet, romantic! Some excursions are done along the river. Excellent for families and couple. A nice place to admire nature!

We cruised the Rio Chavon as part of a La Romana City Tour. It was a short, but fun cruise on a house boat vessel. Rio Chavon is a lazy river and it was just good to kick back and watch the river banks go...More
