Fodor's Review

Altos de Chavón is a re-creation of a 16th-century Mediterranean village on the grounds of the Casa de Campo resort, where you can find a church, art galleries, boutiques, restaurants, and souvenir shops, and a 5,000-seat amphitheater for concerts grouped around a cobbled square. At the Altos de Chavón Art Studios you can find ceramics, weaving, and screen prints made by local and resident artists. Extra special is the Jenny Polanco Project. She, a top Dominican fashion designer, has made an outlet for Dominican, Haitian, and Caribbean craftsmen to sell their wares, from Carnavel masks to baskets and carved plates. Tienda Batey sells fine linens handcrafted by woman from the sugar plantation bateys (poor villages).
