Cueva de Las Marvillas

Cueva de Las Marvillas Review

Cave of the Miracles is one of the islands most incredible caves with the requisite stalactites and stalagmites, and primitive Taino cave paintings to boot. There are walkways and ramps, a tram, and even an elevator that can accommodate wheelchairs to facilitate exploration. State-of-the-art lighting utilizes sensors, illuminating the artwork as you approach. The cave can safely accommodate groups, which is the only way you can visit. If driving between, say, Santo Domingo and La Romana, make a pit stop and the multilingual staff will pair you up with others to form a group for the guided tour (one hour). The semi-arid gardens are well maintained, as are the restrooms, museum, shop, snack bar, and “herd” of oversized iguanas. Tropical Tours runs a trip here out of Casa de Campo for US$34 per person (minimum six people); they also make a stopover in the town of La Romana.
