Join us on a unique journey to the heart of indigenous Taino culture and some of the most amazing caves in the Dominican Republic. Our adventure begins in the quiet fishing town of Bayahibe, where we set out on a light hike into the beautiful National Park of the East, one of the largest national parks in the country.

Our route takes us through the dry tropical forest in the region of Padre Nuestro, where a small community once existed but now works to preserve the natural beauty and resources found in this region. The settlers originally migrated here because it is an area rich in water and edible vegetation. The trail takes us to several large caves, some containing underground rivers and lagoons, the perfect opportunity to live an unforgettable experience: to actually bathe in the cool subterranean waters that were once an important part of indigenous life in the region hundreds of years ago. Here we find many pieces of Taino Indian art depicting life before Columbus on the island. A unique experience which few tourists get to live, save for scientists and true nature lovers.

We follow this up with a delicious Dominican style seafood lunch on the sands of one of the most beautiful virgin beaches around. After lunch we set out on one more short hike to one of the largest and most breathtaking caves in the area, Cueva del Puente. Parts of this cave are only accessible with flashlights, making this a truly adventurous experience for all. The rest of the day is spent enjoying the turquoise colored, warm waters of the many virgin beaches that surround the park.
