  • 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 system has improved a lot in recent years. The tour guides are very nice and know a lot. It is unique to visit these caves and it's time the largest collection of Pictografen in the Caribbean from the Taino. Totally worth it!

  • They are 52 caves, it is like visiting the time of cavemen, a trip automatically to the past, and a sense of travel to the past, can carry camera and should go with sportswear. In the cave number 1 should be down and up stairs. The ride time is determined by how many want to visit caves, is an economic attraction and safety pin.

  • 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.
