Chavón River Tours

5 reviews
Follow the same winding waterway as popular films like Jurassic Park, Rambo and Apocalypse Now along the Chavón River, arguably the most picturesque river in the country. The best way to see the river is aboard one of the river cruises that pass through steeps gorges, up to 250 feet tall in places, and offer glimpses of the unique wildlife that lives along the riverbank, including freshwater turtles and hawks. The Chavón River also passes by the interesting and beautiful Altos de Chavón, an artist’s colony perched high on a hill above the river that was designed to look like an ancient Mediterranean village, complete with cobblestone streets and an Greek-style amphitheater.

Practical Info

The Chavón River runs from the interior mountains all the way to the Caribbean Sea near the ultr-luxe Caso de Campo resort, about 6 miles east of the city of La Romana. The artist’s colony Altos de Chavon sits just a couple miles inland from the river mouth.
