Manati Park: There's so much to do at this family-friendly attraction including swimming with dolphins, riding horses and visiting the aquariums to see dozens of varieties of tropical fish.
Altos de Chavon: Take a trip back in time to this artist's village that looks just like a 16th century Mediterranean village. It's located on a hillside overlooking the beautiful Chavon River. Tour artist studios, attend a craft workshop and enjoy some traditional Dominican cuisine.
