These caves truly are like a fairy grotto. The formations are unbelievable. Tour guide was very knowledgable. The pool was stunning as it copied the image.from above. Petroglyphs go back to the Arawack Indians.

Our guide was fantastic. Her stories of growing up Dominican and uses of plants etc was interesting. We were a group of six friends so we got some kind of group rate. This is an excellent initiative for local employment. I've never jumped in fresh...More

Yes, you can walk from the main street going through town. I can't remember the exact location, but there is a sign. It is about a 15 minute walk, if I remember correctly. There are some interesting little restaurants... More
