Things To Do In La Romana

Start with Altos de Chavon, a stunningly accurate Medieval village created out of stone blasted in the creation of a road and bridge over the Chavon River. A visit here is one of the most popular activities in La Romana because you'll find a painstakingly crafted collection of 16th-century buildings and the St. Stanislaus Church (site of many modern-day weddings). Spend time wandering the narrow cobblestone passages and you'll discover restaurants, shops with local crafts and even galleries featuring work by students of La Escuela de Diseno, a design school that's located within Altos de Chavon.

After exploring this charming stone village, you might be up for one of our favorite things to do in La Romana, which is to simply relax on a pristine golden beach. This Dominican Republic destination is not overrun with tourists, yet it still features the gorgeous water and soft sand for which the Caribbean is famous. That's why we love nothing better than to pass the time beachside -- in particular, on the stretches of Dominicus and Bayahibe. There are a number of hotels and resorts here, but there is also public access.

For golfers, there are undeniably alluring activities in La Romana. With wonderful weather year-round and picturesque views, golf is an understandably popular pursuit. There are three courses open to the public along with multiple private courses. If you prefer marine life to tee times, La Romana has plenty to offer you as well. It's an acclaimed dive site, with diving schools and numerous dive centers.
