Boat Tour On The Chavon River


  • 51/2
    hrs Estimate Duration

Enjoy a leisurely cruise on the Chavon River as it meanders through the densely forested countryside and explore the replica 16th-century Mediterranean-style village that perches on a hilltop high above the river. After settling in on the covered boat, you will head down the tranquil river, which eventually empties into the Caribbean Sea. The river cuts through a jungle that looks so primeval that it has been used as a location for movies such as “Rambo,” “Apocalypse Now” and “Jurassic Park.” You will also visit Altos de Chavon, the village that overlooks the river. While it will appear to be Old World, the village wasn’t built until the early 1980s. As you walk the cobbled streets, you will pass architectural gems such as a re-created Grecian-style amphitheater and a stone church that contains the ashes of St. Stanislaus.
