Other Nearby Places to Visit
Travelers in search of a kid-friendly excursion should check out the Fun Fun Cave for a chance to explore one of the largest caves in the Dominican Republic. The tour starts early in the morning at the ranch itself, where visitors are served a tasty breakfast of fresh fruits. After everyone has eaten their meal, there is a short ride on horseback followed by a hike on foot through the beautiful rainforests of Los Haitises National Park. Once the group reaches the entrance to the underground cave, specially-trained tour guides help travelers rappel approximately 60 feet down into the earth with only a lantern to light the way. After making the descent, tour guides lead visitors through various cave tunnels and across an underground river while bats fly overhead. Tourists are required to crawl and climb through the many rocks and walls within the cave, which reveal various petroglyphs and rock paintings from the Taino Indians who are native to the region. There is even a section of the tour that requires visitors to swim through an underwater hole in a cave wall in order to continue along. After traveling more than 2 miles underground, tour guides lead the way back to the world above where families can rest for a while before another horseback ride leading back the ranch. After arriving at the ranch, guests are served a lunch buffet consisting of a wide range of local foods. The Fun Fun Cave tour is a round-trip excursion, which means families will also be picked up and dropped off at their hotels.
