Rio Chavon, La Romana

(220+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall
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. Make Rio Chavon a centerpiece of your La Romana vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our La Romana holiday planner.
