Things to do in La Romana

  • Getting out on the water in the Caribbean is one way to enjoy the best La Romana has to offer. Transportation from your hotel is usually included. One favourite is a catamaran cruise to nearby Saona Island. This almost an atoll bit of land is covered in white sand and framed with lazy palm trees, perfect for snorkelling and that included barbeque lunch on the beach. Tropical drinks are included.
  • Another stand-out tour is the Los Haitises National Park Sightseeing Cruise. Sail past tiny islets on San Lorenzo Bay, through a mangrove forest and then stop to visit caves filled with prehistoric petroglyphs or to do some bird watching. Brown pelicans, royal terns, and frigate birds are regular visitors. Land-based tours of the park are also available, focusing on exotic birds and plant life in the tropical rainforest. A lunch stop in the town of Savanna de la Mar is included.
  • Check out the Altos de Chavon, a recreated 16th-century Mediterranean style village overlooking the Chavon River. Wander through the cobblestone streets, past musicians and dancers giving impromptu performances, and old-fashioned shops with an assortment of food and handmade goods.
