Must see! Very nice view beautiful place to take photos. Scenery is amazing and during a warm day it actually feels a bit cooler.

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.

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
