Rio Chavon, La Romana

3.7
#3 of 8 in Parks in La Romana
Enter pure jungle with a trip along Rio Chavon, a salt water river that winds its way out to the Caribbean Sea. With a filmography nearly as long as the river itself, "Apocalypse Now", "Rambo II", "Rambo III", "Anaconda" and Steven Spielberg's "Jurassic Park" were all filmed here. Meander into the depths of the undergrowth by kayak or boat tour and keep an eye out for turkey vultures, fish hawks and freshwater turtles along the river and its gorge.

  • Best regards. I am a regular fisherman in the river chavon in the form of spinning, fish bass and snapper, I love to sail the river above all the afternoon, part of the city of high chavón artists can be seen from the river and there are a few steps (325) think , that rise from the River to altos de chavon, this river has 2 sections divided by a dam a stretch is salty and upstream is sweet with variety of fish for each water. From bauahibe they organize tours for couples fast boats and boats for groups.
