Saona Island Paradise From Punta Cana

221 reviews
Travel from Punta Cana to Saona Island, a showstopper among the Dominican Republic’s off-shore islands. Get there with a quick and easy speedboat and return at a more leisurely pace aboard a spacious catamaran that includes music and an open bar. Start your all-inclusive, full-day outing with pickup at your hotel.

We checked the website before leaving Santo Domingo after hiring a car for hire. Upon arriving we found out that the Altos de Chavon is not open. We were not allowed to go in. This cost us time and money. Their website didn’t advertise any restrictions.

Loved Altos de Chavon, we don't get tired of visiting this beautiful place. Stores are a little pricey.

Amazing place, hard to believe they built this from scratch. It looks very authentic, with fun shops (amazing cigar store), restaurants (we loved Chilangos), and views of the river. The crown jewel is the 5,000 seat outdoor theatre. Not in use now, but we can imagine rocking concerts here when things get back to normal.

The village of "Altos de Chavón" dates of 1976 and tries to "re-create" a 16th century Mediterranean town. It is today a popular tourist attraction to all those visiting "La Romana" and its awesome marina of "Casa de Campo". The village comprises a cultural center, a small archaeological museum, an amphitheater with 5,000 seats (known for some important historic concerts and shows), restaurants, art galleries and a few shops. At its center, a square, a fountain and a pretty chapel devoted to "San Estanislao de Cracóvia", the Patron Saint of Poland. No wonder, "Altos de Chavón" became a quite famous wedding venue in the Dominican Republic. Bring your cameras! Awesome views of the village and of the iconic "Río Chavón" await your visit. Nevertheless, the village does look quite fake. Enjoy!

We visited Altos de Chavon during Covid-19. It was beautiful, but it was like a ghost town. We actually took family pictures here that were breathtaking and it was probably a good thing there weren't the normal crowds.
