La Romana (Excursion)
We arranged a taxi though the marina office and went to La Romana to run some errants and see the town.
The taxi took us several places and waited for us and cost USD$50 for about 2-1/2 hours.Howard [ Just Imagine ] 12-Jan-2008

Alto de Chavon (Excursion)
A little bit of old world Tuscany, cut and pasted into a dramatic setting high above the river. It is hard to believe you are in the Caribbean.
Lovely reconstructed village with magnificent views complete with a full size Greek or Roman theater that has been a venue to some big artist shows.
We had lunch at a fine restaurant overlooking the river.Howard [ Just Imagine ] 12-Jan-2008
Modern Greek Theater (Point of Interest)
The restaurant looks out over the river valley way below.
There are cows grazing along the river banks. Howard [ Just Imagine ] 31-Dec-2007
