    Sunday 3 of September 2017 yesterday I was visiting the caves, I tell them that the road is super easy, you can go by car because the road is not bad, there are certain signs also. The entrance has a cost of RD$ 100 p/p more the cost of the Guide, can walk the 300 to 900 depending on if you want to explore all the caves or just one. I only visit the cave one of this travel takes approximately 30 minutes, this cave is divided by rooms and they are super dark, we were 3 people and we went with 4 light bulbs and we could hardly see but the guide was very good, some rooms have many bats (is an av entura) must be prepared to walk. I invite you to visit it until they end up destroying them.

    We went by car from Santo domingo, it's not all that far, about 45 minutes drive, well worth it :) To get to the entrance of the cave system you need to take a dirt road. It's ok with a small rental v...  more »

    These indigenous rock art caves with more than 6,000 paintings in its interior is the most important in the entire Caribbean. Located in the Bourbon section North of San Cristobal. Visited in 1849 for the first time, by the consul of Inglaterra Sir Robert Schomburgk's German origin, made a report of its finding by letter dated March 15, 1851 to Prince Albert, Queen Victoria de Inglaterra spouse, and who in turn made communication to the ethnological society of London on 11 December of the same year. For more than 150 years after the report by Sir Robert Schombur, the caves of the Pomier have been object of research and countless notable tours that attest to its value. Reference: Report of Domingo Abreu Espeologo.

    The anthropological reserve of Cuevas de Borbón or contain 55 caves with the increased diversification of petrogilifos and pictographs of the Caribbean. It is a very interesting experience, especially in the "room of silence" in Cave 1. In this part is measured the level of silence that has the cave... try this experience. From April 7, 2017, by order of the Ministry of environment the entry price will be Rd$ 200 p/p. Note: Price is per cave. And in one day it won't be to all. Cave 1 is the most large and its travel range per 30 minutes. Other caves are more adventurous because they have that it dragged and scale.
