Holidays in La Romana, the sugar cane paradise

A Caribbean holiday with an urban twist

There is no time to get bored in this fantastic port town to the east of the capital of the Dominican Republic. La Romana is the third most important city in the country after Santo Domingo and Punta Cana, with which it shares popularity in terms of tourist offer. Beaches, history, museums and an extensive range of excursions and water activities make this area of the island a very special attraction.

Details of
La Romana

Halfway between Santo Domingo and Punta Cana, on the Caribbean coast of the Dominican Republic, is the popular tourist destination of La Romana. With an average temperature of 26°C, this city is a great alternative for leisure and outdoor fun at any time of the year. Most of the territory is dedicated to the sowing of sugar cane and is divided into 'bayetes', small colonies equipped with homes and facilities for day labourers. But this predominantly rural nature of the province has not prevented the development of La Romana from a tourist point of view.

Places of interest in La Romana


Altos de Chavón

On the top of a plateau and surrounded by vegetation stands this original replica of a Mediterranean village from the sixteenth century. The charm of its medieval architecture and its fantastic views over the river attract countless travellers from all over the world. Bars, clothes shops, jewellery and craft workshops, the iglesia de San Estanislao (church of San Estanislao) and its Greek-style amphitheatre complete the beauty of the natural landscape of this picturesque place.

Cueva de las Maravillas (Cave of Wonders)

The Parque Nacional Cueva de las Maravillas (Cueva de las Maravillas National Park) is one of the most important in the country and in the Caribbean. On its walls you can find pictographs and petroglyphs from thousands of years ago in an excellent preserved condition and easily accessible through a route of ramps and paths. Impressive samples of stalactites and stalagmites accompany this Taino art show around the spectacular artificial lake known as the Espejo del Agua (Mirror of the Water).

Isla Catalina (Catalina Island)

Despite its small size (barely 15 square kilometres), Isla Catalina is a very popular place to visit for those spending a few days on holiday in La Romana. More than two thirds of its coastline is taken up by three beaches that open up between outcrops and cliffs of extraordinary beauty. Due to the abundant riches of its seabed, it is a great place for diving.

Isla Saona (Saona Island)

Known to the Aborigines as “Adamanay”, the island ended up receiving the name of the Italian sailor who docked at it during the conquest of the New World. Together with villages of fishermen and shellfish farmers, there are beautiful heavenly beaches with coral reefs, impressive caves reminiscent of the island's indigenous past and vast palm groves that are home to more than a dozen endemic species.
