Cave Exploration & Mediterranean City
Visit the interesting cave system "Cuevas de las Maravillas" in San Pedro de Macorís with underground river courses and dripstone caves. It is the largest developed dripstone cave in the Dominican Republic and features several hundred pictographs created by the indigenous Taino Indians.
Afterwards, drive through the flat countryside along sugar cane plantations and pastures to La Romana. The city began to develop only in the 20th century, mainly due to the Cuban sugar factory owners. Continue to "Altos de Chavón", a Mediterranean style town located above the river of the same name. Lunch optional (not included).
The 16th century town was faithfully rebuilt from coral limestone according to the plans of an Andalusian settlement with Roman style elements. The city consists of a church, an amphitheater and an archaeological museum with exhibits about the Taíno culture. Many artisans, painters and sculptors still live there and present their work in small boutiques. There are also studios in town where carpets are woven the old-fashioned way.
