Cave Exploration & Mediterranean Town

Solicitud

Visit the interesting cave system “Cuevas de las Maravillas” in San Pedro de Macorís with subterranean courses of rivers and stalactite caves. It is the largest developed stalactite cavern in the Dominican Republic and displays several hundred pictographs created by the native Taino Indians. Afterwards, you drive through the flat land along sugar cane plantations and pastures to La Romana. The town only began developing in the 20th century, mainly due to the Cuban sugar manufacturers. Continue to “Altos de Chavón”, a Mediterranean style town situated above a river of the same name. Lunch optional (not included). The 16th century town has been rebuilt using coral limestone true to the original plans of an Andalusian settlement with Roman stylistic elements. The town consists of a church, an amphitheater and an archaeological museum with exhibits about the Taíno culture. Many artisans, painters and sculptors still live there and present their work in small boutiques. The town also has studios where carpets are woven the old-fashioned way.
