The whole walk takes around 1.5 hours and is in the shade of the trees. Our guide, Wilson, provided lots of interesting information. We saw quick sand for the first time and there is a derelict site that used to be a bar and eating place ran by Jungle Johnny. The trails and caves are very safe and well maintained. The entrance fee is US$20.00 per person, which we thought was worth it. We enjoyed spending time who grew up on the mountain close by and took is back to his childhood. Although it’s not fancy or commercialized, it is well worth visiting.

This is a must do if you have an afternoon while in Cabarete. We walked from the millennium hotel and were treated to a first class tour by John Paul. He was delightful and informative. 40% of the $20 fee goes to the farmers living on the mountain. We both jumped 3 meters into the cave and loved every moment.

Stephen was our guide for this tour. It is fairly inexpensive at 20 USD. the caves are amazing to see and the water is gorgeous. Stephen gave us a lot of information about the land, plants used to make mamajuana, old structures in the area, and the mango trees along the way. He got a fresh mango from the tree for us to take back to our resort and after the tour while waiting for our cab Stephen and the other guides spoke with us and made us feel like old friends. Thanks again for the amazing trip

these are miniature caves. guide tells a few jokes and walks you around takes about 45 minutes. TOTAL RIPOFF at $20 per person. Government should shut this sham operation down but its the only way for a foreign tourist to see them.

Steven was our guide in Las Cuevas de Cabarete. He made our trip there fun and enjoyable. Although it was heavy raining it was an unforgettable experience in the Jungle of Dominican Republic!! We paid 20 dollars per person, in case you are wondering. :)

Enjoy!

Our guide, Will, made this an exceptional experience. His knowledge of the caves and the surrounding terrain were profound and insightful. We saw amazing sites, learned a lot, and had a wonderful day that we will never forget. HIGHLY RECOMMEND visiting the caves of cabarete - ask for Will to be your guide . . . you will not regret it!

Great tour through the caves. Our guide had just Bill and I, so we had great conversations all the way through the caves. The water in the base of the caves is beautiful and you really need to jump in! Lovely walk, fun excursion away from the beach scene!

Steven was our guide through the caves and surrounding area. He made the experience very fun and interesting. He grew up in the park and knows the history intimately. We had so much fun and really enjoyed learning about the history of the buildings, the trees and plants and the caves. They are beautiful and fascinating!! Highly Recommend this stop!!!

Let me start by saying, "DO NOT PAY FOR THIS EXCURSION THROUGH A HOTEL OR ANY TOUR COMPANY." You will end up paying at least double to quadruple the regular price. A local told us about these caves and told us how to get there. From Sosua/Puerto Plata, head towards Cabarete on highway 5 (that's east), and turn right onto Callejon de la Loma. The street sign is a little hard to read, but when you see a sign on the left that says "Orange," turn right into the direction away from the ocean. Go all the way down the busy street to the end of the road. At the end, you will see a lagoon and a booth to purchase your tickets. Even if you don't have a car, taxi drivers will take you there for a fraction of the tour price. The next MUST DO is to ask for Levi. He is an amazing, friendly, and very knowledgeable tour guide who speaks better English than most people in the United States. Tickets are normally $20/person, but we haggled our way to $15/person with promise of a good tip. Levi started our tour by showing us the botanical garden and the "Canadian ruins." Lots of interesting facts and history. We then proceeded to ascend and then descend into the Voodoo cave. What a site!! The calcium rock formation was spectacular, the water, super pristine and very refreshing. If you have never swam in a pitch dark cave, this is your chance. Levi will shut off the light and let you float around in the super deep pool of water; that's gotta get your adrenaline pumping. Levi brought us to two other caves with the final cave having natural light exposure for us to swim and jump into the cave. We spent quite some time at the caves and not once did we feel rushed or get the impression that Levi was annoyed. He took tons of great pictures for us while we were swimming around exploring the cave. I will also add that if you need any advice on getting the cheapest price for excursions or places to eat, Levi is your man to ask. He saved us tons of money on other excursions and food. He also invited us back to his house for a home-cooked dinner and gifted us with the best, genuine Mamajuana in the country. For someone with so little, Levi has a heart of gold and showed us INCOMPARABLE DOMINICAN HOSPITALITY. I will definitely return for another visit and have Levi vacation with our group so we can get the best deals while seeing the best of the Dominican Republic. Btw, BIG TIP: DON'T FORGET THE INSECT REPELLENT.
