  • 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.

  • History place.
