“Find out when it is blowing before going”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We were on an ATV tour, and asked the guides to make the side trip to the Boca el Diablo after reading all the reviews. There are stunning views to be had, and there were creepy sounds coming from the mouth, but there was no water shooting out. The guide described what usually happened when it was blowing, but we were very disappointed to find we should have checked the ocean conditions first. If we go back, I will definitely try to see it again, but with some planning.

Note to parents: there is nothing keeping you from going right up to the hole, and I almost fell in, because you can't see it until you are right on top of it. Watch where you step.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This place when we did find it, was one of the most amazing things we had ever seen in the Dominican Republic and we have toured the 4 corners of the island! We drove ourselves which is how we like to do things, and the ride in was also very interesting, with the stalactites and caves. We ran into a local boy who displayed some great talents when climbing a palm tree!

“Geological site seing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is just incredible. First à good experience to drive in this Virgin forest with à lot of "grotas" along the way, and to reach this unique site.
There is as well close to Fronto Beach you can reach by boat from Las Galleras

“Very nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

We visited Boca Del Diablo (Mouth of the Devil) as part of a full-day ATV tour with Razor Tours. It is basically an opening thru' the rocks from which air and spray come out at tremendous speeds depending on the underlying wave action. We have never seen anything like it, and were amazed by the blowhole as well as the beautiful view of the sea you get from the rocks at the mouth. The only thing is that it takes a while to get here on rough roads, so if you are heading on to Playa Rincon afterwards, just be prepared for plenty of ATV drive time.
