“Fabulous Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

The Altos de Chavon is a beautiful replica of an Italian village. The views of the Chavon River are outstanding!
Lovely artists' shops and boutiques plus restaurants.

Want to study art? It doesn't get any better. Wonderful 1976 stone reproduction of quaint Italian village. Get creative and get inspired!

“Altos de Chavon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

We went on a private tour to Altos de Chavon area, not to the School of Design itself. The views of the river gorge, the gardens and the ancient-looking buildings, amphiteater and other monuments are very pretty, all very well kept. Be aware that if you are staying at a hotel in the La Romana-Bayahibe area, if your hotel requests it by email Altos the Chavon tickets will only be $5 per person, instead of the normal $25. Children are free.
