This is one of the most beautiful caverns I have ever been inside. The view is simply breathtaking! Beautiful stalactites and stalagmites. Lovely pools. There are some places where the stairs are a little steep, but don't let that stop you. You can choose to ascend or wait at the bottom while the more agile people go up. You will... More

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 is an elevator which I suppose could get a wheelchair down for a shortened tour... 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 therefore, going up is quite a climb. If you are traveling with a handicap person,... 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 are easy to navigate and the elevator was working. Easy for a 3 year old...

We went on our own. Once we arrived, we bought our tickets and we went it right away. Not busy at all. Guide comes and explains a bit...I do not understand why they do not allow people to take pictures?? even without the flash....really? Ok....Caves were nice, they did a really nice job with the lighting and ramps. They have... More

It was hot but to lay eyes on this cave system was incredible. Not for the unstable as there is lots of stairs and rock steps that can be daunting, but worth every step.

Beautiful place. Staff is very kind and professionals. The ticket is $20 so don't spend $89 for tour from hotels. The cave is unbelievable. Camera use is prohibited.
