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.

One the best excursions I have ever done in my life. If you want something adventurous, active, different and away from the regular tourist trail then this is for you! Youll see out early 6:15am from your resort and have a long coach ride about 3.5 hours to the Los Haitises National Park region/Hato Mayor del Rey area, passing through several towns on the way. We had a couple of interesting comfort stops with local fayre to buy.

Once at the Ranch we were served a lovely breakfast and were kitted out with cave suits, hats, torches, harnesses, etc. and assigned our horses to trek to through the forest and to the caves. The hose riding through this terrain was amazing! The guides are excellent, funny, informative, knowledgeable and well skilled in navigating the region and the caves. They point out a lot of interesting flora and fauna along the steep rocky ascent during the on-foot part of the journey. The repelling descent into the darkness of the caves was great! Once inside youll learn all about the interior of the caves and the geology and history of the region. It was truly fascinating! After a reasonable trek through the caves, streams, crawling under boulders and through narrow openings and larger caverns we psyched ourselves up for exiting the caves through an underwater stream. Very exciting and the guides have your back! We then get reunited with the horses, enjoyed a quick refreshment and began the fairly long horse ride back to the ranch. Once back at the ranch we were served a lovely home cooked Dominican lunch. We also got to play with the pet dogs on the ranch and were shown some of the local pigs and banana plantations whilst we waited for our coach back. It was one of those trip of a lifetime kinds of experiences. Not necessarily for the faint-hearted, but we had the time of our lives on this trip. It is amazing!

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 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!
