By Viator, September 2014

2 4 Reviews | Add your review

The city of La Romana has just the right amount of variety when it comes to things to do and see, which makes it easy to spend three days exploring. From relaxing beaches to interesting architecture to nature both above and under the water, you’ll experience a region of vibrant scenery and culture. 

Day 1: Relaxing on the Beach
La Romana has stunning beaches with soft sand that gets lapped up by clear sea water. A visit to this city wouldn't be complete without time spent at one of the beaches, which are generally high on travelers' to-do lists. You have several choices of where to lay down your beach towel while in La Romana, though the wide, pristine coastline of Bayahibe is great for sunbathers and Playa Caleta is the spot for those looking to experience the local way of life.

Day 2: Altos de Chavón
Altos de Chavón is the recreation of a 16th-century Mediterranean village that is focused on keeping the culture of the Dominican Republic alive. Altos de Chavón has stonework that makes for a stellar backdrop to the restaurants, museums and shops that can be found within the little village. 

Day 3: Island Time
Off the coast of La Romana are two small islands perfect for a day trip: Catalina Island and Saona Island. On Catalina Island, you’ll find six square miles of lush beauty and one of the best snorkeling spots in the region. On Saona Island, you can also find good snorkeling, though most visitors choose to spend their time exploring this island's vibrant nature reserve.
