La Romana: Discover the Antilles flair of La Romana in the Dominican Republic on a luxury cruise with MSC Cruises

Sitting on the south-eastern coast of the Dominican Republic in the Greater Antilles is the popular cruise destination of La Romana, a resort town positively made for vacations, fun and relaxation.

With La Romana boasting beautiful beaches, bags of Caribbean flair and a number of excellent golf courses, including the curiously named “Teeth of the Dog”, the visitor is truly spoilt for choice. The vibrant, party feel of the modern city promises a great day off the ship for the entire family.

A little way out of La Romana lies the charming Altos de Chavón, a meticulous recreation of a 16th-century Mediterranean village that was conceived by a former film set designer. As you stroll through the cobbled alleyways of this bustling townscape, you will find restaurants, quaint shops selling artisan-made products, art galleries and even an amphitheatre. Adding to the faux historical feel still further is the lovely little St. Stanislaus Church, along with its fountain and plaza forecourt.

Only a stone’s throw from the nearby beach resort of Bayahibe – worth a trip in itself for swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving – lies the island of Saona, a wonderful complement to your cruise holiday with MSC Cruises. Showcasing the diversity of the Dominican Republic’s landscapes, flora and fauna, this lovely Antilles island is sure to appeal to wildlife enthusiasts and beach lovers alike.

Difficulty level: moderate - May involve inclines, steps, uneven surfaces and/or extended periods of standing  This two-in-one tour begins with a scenic 45-minute drive in an air-conditioned coach through the sugarcane fields to the city of Higüey, which was founded in 1494 and whose cityscape is dominated by the famous Catholic Basilica of La Altagracia.

 LRM09 - MARAVILLAS CAVE & SAN PEDRO (4.5 hrs) - 2013/2014
Difficulty level: moderate - May involve inclines, steps, uneven surfaces and/or extended periods of standing  After leaving the port, an air-conditioned coach will first take you on a pleasant 30-minute drive to the Cueva de las Maravillas - the Cave of Miracles – which is situated roughly midway between the seaside resorts of La Romana and San Pedro de Macoris. A happy coincidence saw a group of boy scouts (re-)discover the caves in 1926, since when much development work has made a significant portion of the much larger cave complex accessible to the public. The caves are not only home to stalactites and stalagmites as well as a crystal-clear underground pool, but also – and perhaps most importantly – to a large number of ancient and almost perfectly preserved rock paintings left by the island’s native Taíno people. Neither photography nor videoing is permitted in the caves. The next leg will see you re-board the coach and head to the Cigar Factory, an internationally renowned manufacturer that is famous for its exquisite hand-rolled cigars. Prepare to be amazed at the deftness and lightning speed with which the factory workers roll these cigars. Then it’s on to the lovely seaside town of San Pedro de Macoris, which was founded in the early 19th century by European immigrants and then boomed in the early 20th century when the price of sugar soared on the market. During the 30-minute drive back to the port, a stop will be made for you to do some shopping.
