Cueva de Las Marvillas

Cueva de Las Marvillas Review

Some of the caves in the Dominican Republic are well worth exploring, even for nonaficionados. Cueva Las Marvillas is an incredible cave with the requisite stalactites and stalagmites, but its true highlight is a series of primitive Taino cave paintings. Concrete walkway steps and ramps make exploration easy, and the ramp can accommodate visitors in wheelchairs. The state-of-the-art lighting utilizes sensors, illuminating the artwork as you approach. Everything has been done so that the cave can safely accommodate groups, which is the only way you can visit, as part of a guided tour. The grounds and semi-arid gardens are well designed and maintained, as are the restrooms, museum, shop, and cafeteria. The tour takes about one hour. Tropical Tours runs a trip there out of Casa de Campo for US$30 per person (min. 6 persons); in addition to reliable transportation, they make a stopover in the town of La Romana and give visitors a slice of real Dominican life.
