chavon casa del rio

This week’s photo was sent to us by Julia Rodriguez and is of the old Cafe del Sol restaurant in Altos de Chavon.

Cafe del Sol used to be an extremely popular pizza restaurant, with, as you can see a stunning outdoor seating area with a just gorgeous view over the Chavon river. Carol Burke, our ‘Memories of Casa de Campo’ writer recently wrote an article about the Cafe del Sol, with some fascinating photos of how it used to be in the 1990’s, to read her article, click here.

The old restaurant seating and tables have been left out on the terrace and if you follow the steps down from the Altos de Chavon main plaza you can walk around this beautiful area. It’s a really romantic spot and breathtakingly beautiful, but if you decide to sit at one of the tables – be very careful they’re very old and many are broken.
