I enjoyed this cave. the guide was well informed and easy to understand. the formations in caves are very nice.the cave art was interesting-it does appear that some touch ups were done over the years.. A small museum and gift shop are on the premises. a nice time was had-also the iguana exhibit was nice.

I am the architect who was in charge of the development of Cueva de las Maravillas Park. It is a great pleasure to read so many positive reviews of the attraction. We finished the project 12 yeasr ago and still the cave amaze myself. I am happy that it stills work well in terms of accesibility and conservation.
One thing, some travellers photos are not from Cueva de Las Maravillas, but actually from Cueva Los Tres Ojos in the Capital City of Santo Domingo. There isn't any natural lake in Cueva de las Maravillas, is not a cenote, like Cueva de los Tres Ojos ( which is also amazing bit a very different project in terms of conservation). There is only a tiny artificial pond inside Cueva de Las Maravillas, it was built to recover some of the humidity that mught be taken out in intensive touristic visits.
Anyway, thanks for your comment. Make me proud.

So these caves are really cool. The art on the walls is pretty basic but still interesting. For some reason they dont allow photography in the caves. The stilagtites and stalagmites are very impressive. Make sure to on check out the iguanas.

The caves were very nice. My son enjoyed the trek to the caves with the iguanas along the trail. The grounds were very well kept and our guide very friendly. I do wish that we would have been allowed to take photos.
