Benefit from having a guide leading you around the cave network.
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.
