Nature is amazing! Truly breathtaking. Worth venturing out to see or perhaps even kayaking early one morning.

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
