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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

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.
