River Chavon Cruise

The start of a real Jungle Adventure....

Each regular Tanama Excursion contains a fabulous river cruise on our traditional riverboat. You will experience the mighty gorge of the Chavon River, just east of La Romana, as no other. The banks are covered with dry tropical jungle and wildlife is everywhere around. No worries ... there are no crocodiles or piranhas, but we might see the freshwater Turtle, the Fish Hawk, the Turkey Vulture and numerous water birds...

But first and foremost the gorge itself is very impressive. With a tropical storm or a passing hurricane the water can rise more than 8 meters (24 ft) and that shows, in millions of years the gorge is caved out of the surrounding sandstone and at places the rivers meanders more than 80 meters (240 ft) below the top. The blockbusters Apocalypse Now, Rambo 3 and Anaconda were filmed here.... and with reason... this is pure jungle!!

The cruise takes 40 minutes and the riverboat has an open bar and a bathroom. The staff will offer you free drinks and fruit snacks, while you can enjoy the tranquility of the river and soak up the scenery. Our experienced guides (all English speaking) will show you what this beautiful place has to offer.

We offer a number of different excursions to visitors of Punta Cana, Bayahibe and La Romana. Some excursions will start with the cruise and go stream up, some excursions only go stream down and some go both ways. Check the excursion page to find the one that suits you... And you can build your own excursion by combining different activities, but the river cruise is a 'must do' and is included in each trip. All excursions are done in the most flexible manner to suit your needs. And most excursions fit the port times of the cruise ships arriving in the La Romana cruise port, which is only 10 taxi minutes away.

For those ones who want something else when visiting the area or docking with a cruise ship in La Romana: we have a number of other options available. You can rent the entire boat for your party or have one of our jungle ranches (we have two) exclusive for you and your friends.... You can include horseback riding and we can include a buggy or quad tour. Everything is possible.....
