Visiting the Village of Altos de Chavon

There is so much to see in the Dominican Republic. Its diverse landscape and rich culture have made it one of the most visited nations in the Caribbean.

During my recent trip, I had the opportunity to visit the village of Altos de Chavon. Altos de Chavon is located in La Romana, about 70-miles from the historic city of Santo Domingo. Nestled atop a plateau, the small villa is located within the boundaries of the beautiful resort complex of Casa de Campo. Altos de Chavon was built in 1976 and is home to the Altos de Chavon Cultural Center Foundation, a non-profit educational and cultural entity dedicated to maintaining an arts community within the Dominican Republic. The village of Altos de Chavon includes cultural museums, art galleries, craft workshops, an amphitheater, a church and another campus for Chavon: The School of Design.
