Owner description: The Pirate Rum Factory & Taino Cave Museum tour is well received as something different and unique in Punta Cana, because it is interesting and informative of the rich history that goes back 500 years before Christopher Columbus named Hispaniola. On your private tour a professional tour guide will take you and your family through a 4 million year old cave with bats, a waterfall, Tainos & Taino gods and explain the rich history of the Dominican Republic since the days of the Tainos, Christopher Columbus, Spanish conquistadors, pirates, and the Dominican Republic. You will be surprised to learn the 500-year history that brings us to the Dominican Republic today. Naturally, this ties in with the pirate rum and the hand painting of the bottles, the taste of rum infused with natural fruits, indigenous to the Dominican Republic, and is shown to be a great educational experience. We believe it would be a highlight for any visitor to the Dominican Republic. Great for all ages! Let me know if you would like to visit the Pirate Rum Factory & Taino Cave Museum. Taste the Tradition!

I spent an hour here at the Taino Museum and Mi Amor Rum Factory. The cave tour was excellent. You must don a hard hat and then you are led through the cave with a very well informed guide. It takes about 20 minutes and is not only interesting but beautiful. There is the most beautiful waterfall there. Also the roots of what I think our guide said were milk trees, are fascinating. There are many artifacts there as well as lots of information about the indigenous people of Hispaniola, the Tainos. We really enjoyed the tour. Make sure to tip your tour guide when you leave. They depend on this.
Then on to the Rum Factory where rum is infused with all sorts of flavours and then bottled in the most beautiful, hand painted, bottles. We were given samples of all the different kinds, and got quite the buzz, by the way. My favourite was the coffee rum. These hand painted bottles make great souvenirs to bring back to your friends. You can watch the artists as they paint the bottles and other glassware.
They also have a bar and snack area where you can sit and have a drink and watch the world go by. It is very picturesque and relaxing.
There is other Dominican art and souvenirs to bring home. Lots of paintings and some replicas of some of the Taino sculptures.
This is well worth the visit. I understand that they do not advertise with the resorts or tour groups as the commissions for these organizations is so high.
It would be just a short cab ride from most resorts in Punta Cana. And, best of all, the owners are Canadian!!
I recommend this tour to families with young children as your kids would love the cave!!

Something different from the rest of the typical beach and party. We took a tour today. First you take a tour through the cave, later you come up to the rum factory where you can taste all types of rums in different flavors. They also sell them in beautiful hand painted bottles.
