Cave of Marvels
A mix of geology and neolithic cave art makes this cave's name completely à propos.
One of the Caribbean's most spectacular natural museums.
Located on the south coast between La Romana and San Pedro de Macorís, this museum of subterranean nature truly merits the name Cueva de las Maravillas, both because of its spectacular chambers, stalactites, and exotic rock formations, and its dramatic examples of pre-Columbian cave art created by the Taíno people. Even though the section open to visitors is a relatively small one, it’s more than enough to blow away even the most jaded visitor. The combination of the cave’s natural beauty and the truly exceptional ancient painting on its walls make this a striking experience unike any other in the Caribbean (and, some might say, the hemisphere).
