The caves are millions of years old, and yet are one of the Dominican Republic’s best-kept secrets!

There are several dry caves that have shallow pools suitable for swimming and exploration.

The caves have beautiful and irreplaceable mineral formations called stalactites and stalagmites. The caves are very different than the rest of the world, the tunnels appear more eroded and ancient, and the colors are truly unique to the caves here. Indeed, flooded caves are geological time capsules where fossil remains and archeological artifacts have been perfectly preserved. Scientific exploration and preservation is ongoing.

When visiting the caves, you’ll be taken to an underground lake you can jump into. The water is pristine and you can see it’s over 20 feet deep to the bottom.

Again, a must-do activity, and TOUR 69 will take you here via a private tour so just ask!
