  • Brought us, like many other tourists on the bus on the way to Catalina. This place is famous for its charming architecture, which recreates the architecture of the Italian city of the XV-XVI centuries. You can make a lot of pictures and enjoy a pleasant Park and views of the old Italian town (amphitheatre, fountains, Church). As well, visit the shops in the village available for tourists. True, prices will be as usual for such places, high.

  • Beautiful concept and arquitecture. Great place to have a nice concert.
  • Be aware, Altos de Chavon is the exclusive preserve of the Dominican Tours Association. Hence the absence of any kind of road sign indicating the location of the site. We got lucky, we had a compass. Now, if you want to enter the place by your self, the entrance fee is five times dearer than through a tour operator. Furthermore, be ready for an airport style check. At least, the airport does not take copy of your ID (Compulsory for each visitor). "The reason, you see, is that we have a contract with the tour operators" confessed the desk attendant. Never mind, we would have loved to read about that on their website before getting there. Just about two dozen souvenir shops, bars and restaurants. At every corner, the inevitable beggars in disguise pretending playing music or dressed in a flamenco style dress. In the shade, some handmade souvenirs (Made in Haiti) wait for the passers-by on an improvised table. In short: twenty five bucks each gave us the right to buy crap.
  • Great place and great history of music artist
  • The only place in the caribbean that has Google street map
  • gorgeous place for concerts.
