With that in mind it surprises me how many people choose here to visit for long vacations. I found the majority of residents we interacted with unfriendly and not wanting to bother with tourists. Coming from a touristy town I do understand the frustration, but we are still friendly.
We still enjoyed our time, the first day at a resort being pampered on the beach. If you never left this little bit of paradise you're golden.
Luckily we have great resorts to choose from with expertly trained staff to attend your every need.
The following day we visited La Romana this area exists because of shell oil and Paramount Pictures. Several movies have been filmed here along the river , Rambo , Predator , Anaconda and more.
Also overlooking the Charon River is the Village of Altos de Chavon with many cobblestone pathways leading to the Archeological Museum, and The Famous School of Design.

Many famous movie stars have been married here as well as held there receptions in the courtyard.
