La Romana features a combination of picturesque beaches, chic accommodations and desirable attractions.

Containing tropical forests, colonial history and lots of things to occupy your time, La Romana provides the perfect destination for honeymooners and couples alike that are looking for something a bit more upscale while retaining the mystery of the Island.

Altos de Chavón

Built in 1976, Altos de Chavón is a romantic cobblestone lined replica of quaint 16th century Tuscan village. High above the Chavón River this cultural center features shops, artists’ studios and a historic church in stone and coral block buildings.

Casa de Campo

Casa de Campo, a favorite getaway for celebrities, is the venerable resort and villa complex in La Romana that includes exclusive access to La Romana’s marina, a variety of gourmet and casual restaurants and three of Dominican Republic’s top golf courses.

Saona Island

With excursions departing from Bayahibe, Saona Island forms part of the National Park of the East, and its pristine beaches are the main draw. Saona Island is home to some 112 species of birds in addition to turtles, sharks, bottlenose dolphins and manatees making it a unique spot for romantic declarations.

Catalina Island

Catalina Island is a secluded and private island just off the coast of La Romana. It features one of the best dive spots in Dominican Republic. From the beach surrounding the island, a soft slope is the platform for a rich underwater garden of corals and fauna at less than 9 feet (3 m) depth, making it ideal for snorkeling. There are several well know caves and reefs in the area as well as famous shipwrecks. You can view the shipwreck of 17t century prirate Capatian William Kidd less than 20 feet below the surface.

Cueva de las Maravillas (Cave of Wonders)

The more than 100,000 year old Cueva de las Maravillas cave, is expertly lit to show off  an abundance of crystallized minerals, stalactites, stalagmites, tapestries, pisoliths and columns with some 500 petroglyphs etched into the walls by the ancient Taino Indians can be explored.
