Full description
Start your excursion with a trip to Las Maravillas Cave and hear about the original cave dwellers, the Taino Indians. Then spend the remainder of your day meandering through the 16th-century village replica, Altos de Chavon.

Admire the petroglyphs left inside Las Maravillas Cave by the indigenous Taino Indian population, present on the island before the arrival of Christopher Columbus. Follow your guide along the pathways telling the fateful tales of the island's previous residents.

Next, head to Altos de Chavon, named due to its location high above the Chavon River, a Mediterranean-style village with a cultural center, archaeological museum, boutiques, restaurants, a 5,000-seat amphitheater, and the St. Stanislaus Church. Stroll along the cobbled streets to admire crafts made by local artists as well as galleries containing works of design school students
