We took the Padre Nuestro route inside the national park. We paid for our entry bracelets and a guide in advance at the Medio Ambiente office near where the mass tourism buses park in bayahibe. They gave us a ride to the park entrance where we walked about a mile to where the guides are (get a motoconcho if you can, it's a long, hot walk). Just two of us and a guide walked through and learned about the environmental and cultural history of the area. There was beautiful and unique scenery (cactus amongst the tropical flowers, hiking over ancient coral), and a really cool cave at the end. We paid just 200 pesos each for park entry and the guide. It is possible to go by horse but I don't know how. Definitely do this if you can! And put on seem bug spray!

A hidden gem in Bayahibe. Hire a motoconcho/guide ($10) and get a park pass ($2.50) and spend your afternoon looking at and swimming in some cool caves. We went there and had the caves to ourselves for most of an hour before another couple showed up. Kids loved it.
