    hrs Estimate Duration

Explore the replica 16th-century Mediterranean village Altos de Chavon and watch master artisans make premium Dominican cigars at a family-owned establishment founded in 1876. After a scenic tender ride from Catalina Island to La Romana, you will continue on to the village, which sits atop a plateau overlooking the Chavon River. The views from this elevated perch are outstanding. Altos de Chavon is just as captivating, as you will learn about the local culture by browsing the pre-Columbian artifacts in the Regional Museum of Archaeology and by visiting the St. Stanislaus Church, a beautiful stone structure made to look medieval. The 5,000-seat Grecian-style outdoor amphitheater is another exceptional highlight that makes the village appear older than it is. Cigars are synonym with the Dominican Republic and you will watch some of the finest being hand-rolled at the Tabacalera La Vega Fina factory. The cigars are known for their balanced character and rich flavor.
