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!!
