Get your adrenaline pumping as you zipline across the forest canopy and over the banks for the Cumayasa River. Then take the wheel of a 4×4 buggy and explore the lush countryside around La Romana.

Discover Your Inner Artist
Express yourself in classes led by international painters, designers and writers during an Artists in Residence program at Altos De Chavon. Modeled after a 16th-century Mediterranean village, this cultural center is home to artists’ studios, craft workshops and galleries.

On the Rocks
View hundreds of ancient rock carvings inside the Cuevas de las Maravillas cave system. Stretching for nearly half a mile underground, Maravillas is lined with pictographs created by native Taino Indians.

Take your romance to the next level with a hot-air balloon flight over the Bavaro and Punta Cana areas. You’ll gain a whole new perspective as you float above the island’s beautiful beaches, then land in an intimate setting for a champagne toast.

Deserted Island Idyll
Spend a blissful day on Saona, a pristine island that has served as the backdrop for Pirates of the Caribbean and numerous other films. Part of the Parque Nacional del Este—one of the Caribbean’s largest marine parks—Saona Island is revered for its vibrant virgin beaches, Technicolor tides and rich biodiversity.

EVER HAD A FOOT EXFOLIATION, THEN SPENT THE DAY VIEWING TROPICAL BIRDS?

Spa Day, Island Style:  Begin your day with a foot exfoliation — performed by very special, nibbling (and toothless!) fish — that will leave your feet completely smooth, and you feeling altogether refreshed. Then board a catamaran for a class in Bio-Pilates, relaxation time on a floating mattress, indulgence in two types of therapeutic massage, and enjoyment of a delicious spa luncheon at sea.
