Rio Chavon, La Romana

3.7
#2 of 8 in Parks in La Romana
Waterfall Nature / Park
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.

  • It was a course included in a package with a trip to the island of Saona and lobster for lunch. The trip along the river is quite nice for landscape adjacent to the banks. Ideal place for taking photos. Was included bar and animation.

  • I visited it as part of the excursion to isla Saona with pedrito punta cana, and not enjoyed it by the crappy from the boat, engines, and the ruckus that fostered the same operator on Board (blown engines and had to tow), if you enjoy a few drinks on Board of a boat is ideal, if you seek to connect with the jungle , nature, river or scenarios of movies (you can see local fishermen with traditional tools, families who clean freshly caught fish and recorded movies as Apocalypse now or Rambo) best to find another operator
