10 Things To Try For The First Time In Bavaro

Located in eastern Dominican Republic, the town of Bavaro provides a heady mix of cultural traditions and modern activities. We’ve put together a list of some of our favourite ways to spend sunny days down Bavaro ways, many of which you might never have tried before.

Make a splash in a speedboat

From Bavaro Beach, the opportunity to cruise like a rockstar over the Caribbean Sea is yours for the taking.

Take on the golf courses

Close to Bavaro are both the Cana Bay Golf Course to the north, and the larger southern Cocotal Golf & Country Club. Both venues offer fantastic opportunities for you to practice your swing or even try your hand at golfing for the first time. There’s no golfing like the kind you get on the manicured courses of the Caribbean.

Visit the town that Hollywood forgot

An hour’s drive from Bavaro is the very interesting town of Altos De Chavon. And we bet you’ve never been to a recreation of a 16th-century Mediterranean village built in the Caribbean in the 1970s before. It was constructed as a movie set by Paramount and has remained standing ever since. Go explore it for yourself to see fountain plazas and dine beside artist’s studios.
