We visited the Caves of Wonders on a Sunday. It was very slow and quiet. We were a group of six with 4 adults and 2 children. The cost was relatively inexpensive with $300 pesos for adults and $100 for children. We had a tour guide for our small group. She spoke very good english. The inside of the caves... More

A brilliant place to visit, impressive entrance and well maintained safe area. Washrooms are located to the right of the entrance reception - a visit to the caves is by guided tour only - photographers are allowed but definitely no flash photography - the guides prefer that you take photo's from certain vantage points that they suggest - but contrary...

Went to La Romana as a diversion from another port on a cruise. Although this was available from the boat, we hired a private taxi for the day. The caves were nice. It is small compared other caverns I have visited but it was beautiful. Since the portion of the caves you can explore (only with a guide) this is... More

We were not even supposed to go to La Romana on this cruise but because of inclement weather in Santo Domingo, the Captain diverted us to La Romana and I'm glad he did. When you dock at La Romana, there are several ways to get to downtown: an open air trolley, a bus and taxis. It is too far to... More

Wonderful cave and iguana farm. Make certain to have Dominican pesos, price is $300 RD per person, or if you pay in US dollars, it is $10 per person. Nice savings for 2 people if you have Dominican pesos. Nice cave with Taino Indian cave paintings. On a hot day the caves are very refreshing. Guide will speak in both... More

We spent a day in Cueva de la maravilla, what an amazing place. It is considered one of San Pedro de Macoris D.R most beautiful places to visit. The history of the Taino Indian, their writings on the walls was incredible. The height of the caverns, the beauty of the natural stone is something I will remember always. The staff... More

Went here and felt like the place was trying to rip us off when it came time to pay. We picked up a book of things to do around the island at the Avis car rental. Found the beautiful caves inside the attraction book. List ed this place and showed a $5 entry cost. We cashed in our US dollar... More

We bargained with locals outside the gate for a tour for 6 people ($30 pp) around La Romana and included the caves. If you don't have many people it's $150 per taxi so try to go in a group and make sure to say you want to go here. For $10 pp, it's a great deal. 45 minute+ tour into... More

Read reviews about people being disappointed because there were sensor lights & path railings. Found this to be very useful & helped to include all types of visitors. Great for any walker, no hiking experience required. Beautiful, peaceful - a natural wonder.

Very interesting natural attraction. Ancient caves in the middle of Santo Domingo. Full of stalagmites and stalactites. Also a series of small lakes at various levels. There are many stairs, so this is not for those who have trouble with stairs. Deceptive. The stairs come in stages on the way down, but all at the same time on the way... More
