You'll find small signs pointing to and identifying the various crafts workshops bordering the winding cobblestone walkways of Altos de Chavon. You could encounter a diversity of artisans grouped together, moving from a silk-screening shop to rug weavers and then ceramicists.
Although the stores emphasize Dominican culture, the bars and restaurants favor Italian and Mexican themes. Most don’t open until late afternoon but in summer this is the most comfortable time to visit Altos, anyway.
With the local beaches, water sports and numerous other daytime activities, the restaurants and shops are fairly deserted until late afternoon and evening. Only a few restaurants usually are open for lunch.
