About
Altos de Chavon, is an architectural wonder, a 16th century replica of a Mediterranean village perched high above the Chavón River. The village was designed by Dominican architect Jose Antonio Caro, and created by Italian master designer and cinematographer Roberto Coppa. Dominican artisans handcrafted the stone pathways, decorative ironwork, furniture and enchanting buildings, reviving almost forgotten crafts of metal work and stone carving. Under Coppa's direction, each stone was hand cut, each wooden door frame was handcrafted and each wrought-iron detail hand-forged. Construction of the village began in 1976 and the village was inaugurated in 1982 with the concert of Frank Sinatra at the amphitheater. Altos de Chavon was built as a center of culture for the Dominican people.

First time visit. The site was ok. We visited in morning and it was not busy at all. The visit passed a few hours in the area.

USD 50 per person to get in, it is your choice to pay or not; I don’t think it was worth it, specially because is not a historical site (it was built back in 1970’s)

So, we spend like 1-1.5 hours for pretty views but nothing exceptional.

I think 20-25 usd per person would be more accurate 🤷🏻‍♂️

The complex is huge but the only places to visit are the beach they have in property and the small village where they have a museum and amphitheater.

They wanted 50 dollars (only USA dollars!?! No pesos?!?!) per person and 25 dollars per child to visit this museum 150 dollars to see this little museum. The only reason for that price is to keep Dominicans out… we didn’t pay. Went to Cave of wonders which cost just less than 20 dollars all four of us. Save your money and go there instead. Shame on the owners from keeping Taino historical museum so inaccessible!

Too bad none of the websites about Altos de Chavon indicate there is a $50 USD charge for adults to enter and you need a reservation. This is a beautiful town, but when is the last time you paid $50 to enter a town! Why would I shop or dine here if it costs my family $250 just to enter? You can do better DR!

My wife and I were on a bus tour that included this as one of its 3 stops. It was fun just getting to this location, passing through the gated community just to get there. Casa de Campo. Upon arrival we were given a short tour of the grounds, then the chance to visit on our own for a bit. I was pleasantly surprised at what a nice place this was. Walking the grounds could be a bit challenging for some. Uneven surfaces, and steps, could be an issue. We did not visit any of the dining or drinking establishments. There were restrooms available. This stop was far better than I expected.

Altos de Chavon is a small village and garden over looking a beautiful river. The theater is amazing and many gardens to walk around. There are a number of shops, restaurants and bars. It's good to spend a couple of hours to walk around and then eat/drink in an establishment here.

This is my third visit to this charming magnificent place encapsulated in time, a replica of an Italian town of the 16th century! To visit you have to pay 30 usd per person that allows you to visit Altos de Chavon, Casa de Campo’s Marina and Minitas Beach.
