Altos de Chavón

La Romana, Dominican Republic

Well Worth the Visit

Altos de Chavón (west of Bayahibe) is a Caribbean art center built in 1976 to resemble a Mediterranean village from the 1500s. Charles Bludhorn, president of Golf & Western Corporation built the Mediterranean village as a birthday gift for his daughter. Perched atop a bluff overlooking the Chavón  River, Altos de Chavón  features an archaeological museum that is the most important Dominican museum outside the capital. The Church of San Estanislao is in the center of the village. The village of Altos de Chavón also has numerous restaurants, art galleries, a Taino art museum, stores, disco, school of design and an amphitheatre.

The amphitheatre of Stops of Chavón has seating for 5000. It was inaugurated in 1982 and many well-known celebrities (Frank Sinatra and Carlos Santana), artists and rock groups have performed at the amphitheatre.  

FYI:    Scenes from the movie Apocalypse Now were filmed at Altos de Chavón.

Altos de Chavón - well worth the visit.   One is magically transported back in time to old Europe.  Visualize dining in an open-air restaurant situated high on a bluff overlooking the Chavón River and the lush tropical vegetation of the valley below. Dine on fresh seafood, fine wine and enjoy the warm tropical breeze - an incredible experience.  Consider a helicopter flight from Punta Cana to La Romana - a once in a lifetime happening and well worth the money spent.   You will be talking about the experience for years-to-come!

Kandelá The Show!  The Amphitheater
