Travel Around The Dominican Republic Posted by Jorge - Guest Blogger on 18th, September 2012 Did you know that now it is way easier to travel around the Dominican Republic? Although the Dominican Republic is renowned for its beautiful beaches, its crystal-clear waters and the kindness of its people, travellers usually had to deal with some uncomfortable issues. One of the main ones was the conditions of its roads. Fortunately, the government chose to roll up their sleeves and set to the task. After some time of work, now the road between La Romana and Punta Cana has become a beautiful four-lane highway, allowing travellers to reach any of its ends in a breeze-time of 35 minutes, which is a lot less compared to the almost 90-minute journey such travel took before.

Among them, we can easily mention the village of Altos De Chavon, which is a recreation of a European medieval village completed in the mid 1970s. It features an amphitheatre and a beautiful stone church named Iglesia San Estanislao de Cracovia. As a matter of fact, many couples choose this church in Altos De Chavon to get married and enjoy with their guests the beautiful attractions of the site. La Romana visitors can also enjoy some time in Saona and Catalina islands. In Santa Catalina travellers can easily meet new friends among the visitors who step down from the cruise ships that stop there.
Lastly, La Romana features La Cueva de las Maravillas (Caves of Wonders, or Cave of Miracles, in English), which is considered a must-see by every tour guide in the area. Ancient cave drawings art make them an awe-inspiring time during all the tour.

kidding!) If the group is large enough, you can even think about renting or temporarily privatizing larger areas exclusively for their events.
