Altos de Chavon Excursions & Tours
The Altos de Chavón excursion and tour takes you to a very popular re-creation of a Mediterranean style European village, conceived by Roberto Copa, a former Paramount Pictures set designer.
Our excursions to the Altos de Chavón village depart by boat from our pier in Bayahibe where we go west along the marvelous coastline to the river mouth of the river Chavón. Rounding the river mouth we go upriver and enjoy the sight of the lush green riverbanks and moor near the stairs that lead up to the entrance to the village.
The village is located atop the hill of the Chavón River bank giving amazing views down on to the river itself and the surrounding unspoiled countryside. The Altos de Chavón village hosts narrow, cobble-covered alleyways with very old looking houses, a church, fountains, a roman styled amphitheater, a cultural center, and archeological museum.
Our staff members will accompany you during your visit to the village center and after that you will have time (approx. 1 hour) to walk around, take some nice pictures and to buy some souvenirs. Once we are all back on board, we go upriver to the dam while we enjoy some cool drinks and music before we return cruising back downriver and along the coastline. A great tour ending.
Frequency: Tuedays and Fridays.
