Rio Chavon, La Romana

(3.7/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We went to Altos de Chavón where it could see the beauty that is the River, see a church and an amphitheatre as of medieval. There are good restaurants and shops where you can buy gifts or food.
