Adventure-loving kids will be in awe of the Los Tres Ojos (The Three Eyes), a 50-foot open-air limestone cave. Located near downtown Santo Domingo, The Three eyes is a collapsed cave with three lakes. The site was created centuries ago as a result of tectonic fractures when underground caves collapsed, forming a bowl-shaped depression that filled with water. Before a staircase was cut into the rock, locals used to access the cave via a rope. Today, visitors can walk down to the first cave. A boat pulls visitors across the second lake. Although swimming is not allowed, this is a fun outing for families. Kids can look for fish, turtles and bats. The vegetation is lush.
