The caves were cool. Didn't like how the guy mentioned after we were already down there that rats may be running around (I'd deathly afraid of mice and rats). Every area you walk in automatically lights up which is cool but in some areas of...More

If you like caves you'll love this. We travelled independently in our hire car from Bavaro, 1 hour 20 mins. Beautifully lit and atmospheric. Cost DP300 pp- cheaper than dollars. Waited 10 mins for English speaking guide. Lots of steps down! No photography allowed.

We took a cab from LA Romana which was $50 US. The cave tour cost $10/person. This tour was very well presented and lasted perhaps 45 minutes. There are a lot of damp steps so if you are not real mobile you may reconsider. There...More

If you have never been here you should make it a point. This Cavern is as fascinating as it should be. Is extremely deep so make sure you have good shoes to go down. The only things is that their elevator is not always working...More

This is a site to visit. There is this cave excursion walking or by elevator for accessibility. There is a iguanas creation site to visit in the park. The visit includes a guide.

My family and friends-- 16 in total visited the caves recently. We were staying in Casa de Campo which is about 20-25 minutes away. It wasn't very busy, so we had the tour guide pretty much to ourselves. Amazing caves and native drawings. The pathways...More

You will get a guided tour from a person working for Cuevas de maravillas. They wait to have a group - I was with my family and we received our own tour early morning in a pretty empty day. The COST was $10.00 American... More
