What You Can Expect

Adventure Day Trip to Fun Fun Cave

Dominican Republic Adventure Tour

Your adventurous day in the Dominican Republic’s great outdoors begins with a light snack and a guided 30-minute horseback ride to Los Haitises National Park. Upon arrival, you'll take a leisurely 40-minute walk through the park to the mouth of Fun Fun Cave.

At the cave, your guide will assist you as you repel 20 meters (65 feet) down to the base to explore the cave’s West Indian rock art and the tunnels and river that flow through it. The majority of the day trip will be spent here, exploring and learning the history of the cave. You'll marvel at the many stalactites, stalagmites and lava columns while walking through the river inside the cave. Once you're at the end of the cave, you'll come out into an area of lush vegetation and large boulders.

Enjoy a quick beverage break before riding your horse back to where you started. Here, you'll have the option to swim in the nearby river. Then, enjoy a much-deserved lunch of Dominican Republic favorites, including a national drink.

Note: Wear a swimsuit and bring a towel if you choose to get in the river.

Great time, family including 13 and 15 year old boys loved the tour. It was a long drive to the tour, but highly recommend it for any activity orientated families like mine.

Great adventure! Loved the horseback ride, hike and our journey through the cave. Carlos and Henry were terrific guides; Carmen cooked a great breakfast and lunch; Ronaldo got us to and from the cave safely.

Thanks for the fun!

We had a great trip to Fun Fun Cave. Everything was as described. It is a long day from Punta Cana hotels but well worth it. The rappel is completely safe and walking and splashing thru the cave is amazing. We especially enjoyed the guides Carlos and Andre. We would highly recommend this trip. Also, buy the DVD. It's well put together.

Exciting Adventure Tour! Things to know if you are planning to do this excursion - wear a swimsuit and bring a waterproof camera. They provide jumpsuits and boots to wear but you do swim as part of the tour. Earlier reviews made it sound optional - it's not. The guides were really knowledgeable and went out of their way to ensure everyone was comfortable. You do need to be in decent shape for this excursion - there is a bit of hiking, but the guides ensure your safety every step of the way.

This tour was awesome. The tour guides were not only informative but they made it super fun! I was amazed at everything we saw and would go on this tour again in a heartbeat. Highlight of our trip - nothing else compared to it.

This excursion was amazing!!! You begin with a fun hoseback ride into the mountain, a long hike through the mountain, then repel 4 stories into a cave, go through the cave and water, and end your trip with a horseback ride back. The physical energy level is definitely required, but the guides are super helpful and nice.... especially Gary! :) Definitely recommend this excursion... just remember to take your bug spray!

This tour was top-notch from hotel pickup to return. I am a 62 year old somewhat out of shape and at times a bit uncoordinated. However, guides Gary and Hendry made sure that all bases were covered assuring that I had a fantastic experience. My wife also was given great attention by both to assure that all safety procedures were understood and that none of the history and highlights of the tour were overlooked. The horseback ride to the cave entrance was one of the best rides I have experienced. My horse, Orlando Bloom, knew his way and always kept with the group. I was a bit apprehensive about the trek from the horse drop off to the cave entrance but all went extremely well. Even clumsy me did very well and kept up with the group with little problem. I did need one little rest but the guides made sure that I was in good hands at all times. At the cave entrance, all instructions were covered and then it was time to rappel. Wow, what a fantastic and fun experience! Down in the cave you have your helmet and headlamp that lets you see nature at its very best. After the cave walk, you come out into a refreshing water area where you can relax before your horseback ride to the food area where you are given a delicious Dominican Republic culturally oriented prepared meal. This tour should not be missed! Both Gary and Hendry spoke excellent English and like previously said always went above and beyond. Thanks to both - my wife and I had a wonderful day!!

This was an awesome excursion. It's approx a 3 hour drive from the hotels in Bavaro, Punta Cana, then 30 mins on horseback, 45 mins hike up the hills, an hour or so in the depths of the cave (after having rappelled down) then back to the horseride, lunch and drive back to the hotel. Guides (Gary and team) were excellent. Just something to be aware of - you need to be in decent physical shape especially for the hike. Total duration of the trip is close to 12 hours. Also it's pronounced Foon Foon cave.

My husband and I are a young couple, but we love to hike so we decided to book this day trip. At first based on the name we didn't expect this trip to be so amazingly adventurous! our tour guides was Gary and Hendrickson, they were absolutely fabulous!! They ensured everyone was safe and they guided the hike with such enthusiasm. they loved it and we loved it. It is quite a long ride to the ranch but you get a very good idea and scene of how some of the Dominican people live. This day trip is very adventurous but they will provide you with gear. Bring mosquito repellant for sure. This trip was well worth the buck! We will definitely come back again!

This tour is for the relatively fit. There is 45 minutes of hiking through rocky/trail terrain which is highly wooded. The horse back riding portion at the beginning and end was great. We repelled into a cave which was safe to do. The tour guides were fun, knowledgeable and funny. This is a 38 million year old cave which is more recently discovered. I was worried about the bug/spider situation in the cave, but it wasn't an issue. The bugs are relentless on the trail, so bring big spray. The cave and bats are really cool. A ham sandwich snack was offered when we got there. After the tour, the lunch was great: red beans and rice, jerk chicken, pork, coleslaw salad, fruit, potatoes, etc. Water, pop, and beer are also offered. Tip: wear a swim suit/board shorts. They give you a "prison-like" jump suit to wear for the tour along with rubber boots. They say bring extra socks. This is because the rubber boots need to be drained out several times do to the water. When done with the tour, you can wear dry socks for your shoes back home. Flip flops to change out of would also work. Bring a change of clothes (shorts/shirt) to wear over your bathing suit afterwards would also be helpful. Lockers and changing rooms are offered at the location. This was my favorite tour in Punta Cana and highly recommended. Tip: Water cameras only! They will video tape the tour for purchase of $40 U.S. currency.
