What You Can Expect

Adventure Day Trip to Fun Fun Cave

Dominican Republic Adventure Tour

Your friendly guide and driver will collect you from your Punta Cana hotel for this incredible Adventure Day Trip to Fun Fun Cave. Your experience kicks off with a light snack and a guided 30-minute ride on horseback through the epic landscapes of Los Haitises National Park. You’ll also have the chance to explore on foot, as you venture into the depths of the forest on a 40-minute walk to the mouth of Fun Fun Cave.

Upon arrival, your professional guide will help you repel 20 meters (65 feet) into the depths of the cave, where you’ll navigate the hidden chambers and dark tunnels filled with West Indian rock art and flowing rivers. Wander through the stunning stalactites and stalagmites, plus incredible lava columns and rock formations as your guide points out the cave’s dramatic features and shares history and stories about this unique destination. 

You’ll have time to enjoy a quick beverage once you make your way out of the cave, before heading back to your starting point on horseback for a traditional Dominican lunch. Cool off with a dip in the nearby river (don’t forget to wear your suit!) and then relax for the comfortable drive back to your Punta Cana hotel.

The tour guides were great and kept us entertained the whole time. Seeing the cave was worth the hike!

A fantastic trip. Everything was so well organized, and the guides were great--friendly and knowledgeable. It's a bit of a drive from Punta Cana, but well worth it. The trip provides water, a beverage after the cave exploration and at lunch, and a full lunch with vegetarian options!. The horses were in good condition and a pleasure to ride, and the cave is amazing. The guides were clearly trained in safety and caving, and the equipment was in good condition. I'd recommend being in moderate or better physical condition--it is a bit of a hike, and you'll be glad of the lunch when you get it! All equipment is provided, down to the boots. Bring socks consider knee-highs, even, to protect against rubbing from the boots and then dry socks to change into once you return to the ranch. You can change clothes at the ranch, and lockers are provided. I wore a swimsuit under the overalls they provide, and changed back into dry clothes after. If you are someone who needs sunscreen on all the time, bring waterproof sunscreen or a small tube you can re-apply.

A videographer accompanies the tour, and will sell you a DVD of the tour if you wish but there was no pressure to purchase. I chose to buy the DVD, which took 2 days to prepare and deliver to my hotel. It was quite nicely done, and I enjoyed showing it to family at home. You don't get still photographs from it. I wouldn't recommend carrying your own camera unless you are SURE it is waterproof, and you have some way to secure it while horseback riding. I brought my phone in a waterproof container, but even so, the guides looked nervous and had me add it to their drysack when we were in the river in the cave.

Best thing I did in the Dominican Republic.

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!!
