Hidden from the warm Caribbean skies, tucked away inside the stunning Choco National Park in the Dominican Republic, is a large network of underground caves.

Dating back millions of years, the rocky chambers present fascinating formations and wonderful underground scenery.

It is here in the caves where you are able to see signs of the first inhabitants on the island, where humans once took refuge in the protection of the caves; where they developed creativity and performed rituals.

One of the gems of the system is Cueva de Cristal, or the Crystal Cave, hidden deep underground that we will access via a series of steps. This dark chamber provides sanctuary for a freshwater pool.

Elsewhere, hiking to other caves will reveal tunnels packed with icicle-like daggers hanging from the ceiling, as well as centuries-old rock art.

The Choco caves, and by extension the national park, are vital tourist attractions in the Dominican Republic.

There are approximately 200 caves within the system that are 5 million years old. And above ground, hike through the national park populated with forest, lush green jungle, pastures and lagoons.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the picture-perfect national park of El Choco and explore the caves of Cabarete on a half-day adventure.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
