Altos de Chavon
A 16th century Italian village that is a popular tourist stop for its shopping and museums. One of the few areas in the giant Casa de Campo resort open to the public.

Beaches of the Dominican Republic
These fine white sands are a major reason the DR is the most-visited island. Enjoy the coastal waters from Puerto Plata to Barahona.
