  • Went to the caves with friends. We explored several of the sites and saw the pictographs on the walls. Some entrances were natural without rails or steps. There was one cave modified with a walkway...  more »
  • These caves, have not been adapted for the visitor, which makes them an original and fantastic experience and direct contact with the Nature. Worth the visit, with no doubt.  more »
  • I live in Dominican Republic and make a Domestic tourism every weekend but Cuevas Pomier was one of the best experiences I had! It’s 55 calcium caves, a millions years old each one, with caving drawing and huge labyrinth like path. So much fun! 💙💙 Guide was so knowledgeable, worked there for over 20 years, told us a lot of stories and Taínos information. Very nicely maintained area, sculptures of Taino, gift shop, parking, security...all good. Bat’s cave is just amazingly cool. We have time just for 2 caves so we’ll be back few more times to continue our experience. Also: don’t forget to stop and buy Banilejos mango 🥭 on your way back. Your trip wouldn’t be the same 😂
  • Remarkable! Knowledgeable guides (Spanish language only); extraordinary site. Be prepared for some adventurous spelunking.
