  • I wanted to see something else after all the beach on my last day. I drove to San Cristóbal from Santo Domingo with the GuaGua and have since taken a Motoconcho. Caution, know that not all follow you but still go. So better ask whether they really know where they need to go. The cave itself is impressive. It is also not as well known, I was the only visitor there. I've paid 100 pesos entrance fee and 300 for the Guide. He has declared me nice everything and we have left us plenty of time to look at everything in peace. I would recommend the trip anyway. Best you go but not exactly to heavy rain since then water accumulates in the cave and you can at worst do not go in.

  • A dive in the history is offered in these wonderful caves. The discovery of the pictograms is enchanting. Damage Guide (very nice indeed) speak only Spanish! Fortunately, a very well done English brochure allows a rewarding visit. Difficult to understand why these caves are so difficult of access (rarely signs and little reliable) and if little highlighted!

  • The entrance fee is like another 100 pesos. But to other facilities, the staff has creative ideas for additional money. The amounts vary from 300 pesos for 30 minutes and up to over 1000 pesos. In other systems is the Guide included in the price. One is satisfied, is there love to tip. However, we did not visit. It's not about the money, but a matter of principle.

  • Great place, although it can use some improvements. Very educational, entertaining. The use of a guide is mandatory because it is a large area with many caves and nooks. Could easily get lost or injured.
  • Personalized tour. Very informative
  • Not only the caves but also the trails you can find there are great!
  • Wonderful experience for adventurers. The trails are of easy to medium difficulty, a good place for birdwatching as well as bat and herpwatching
  • Fantastic tour of cave paintings.
