About this Tour

   

We will pick you up at your hotel and take you to Rancho Capote to explore the spectacular Cueva Fun Fun (cave) on this eco-friendly adventure tour. En route to Rancho Capote, you'll travel through scenic landscapes of great natural beauty.

Your unforgettable adventure begins with a delicious and plentiful breakfast of fresh tropical fruits. Then you'll receive your special clothing and a brief training session by your guides to prepare you for entering the Fun Fun cave underworld.

There's a hike through a protected rainforest where the forest and small conical mountains intermingle in an ecosystem with one of the richest biodiversities in the Antillean Caribbean. You'll finish the walk at a small crack in the ground that is one of a number of chimneys of the cave complex. Entrance to the cave is by reduction in rope rappel from a height of approximately 20 meters, assisted by your professional guide.

Once inside the cave, everyone turns off the lights on their safety helmets to experience the absolute darkness for a brief minute...truly a unique experience. Your guides lead you through the cave's tunnels and giant underground corridors. There are spectacular stalactites and stalagmites, lava, columns - the breathtaking perfection of the effect of water on the dissolution of the limestone that creates perfect crystals. You will observe how each estigmita emits a different sound, creating a veritable symphony in the bowels of the earth.

It won't be long until you begin to feel water between your feet, as you go into an underground river that includes a small tunnel to swim across. Heading back toward the surface from the depths of the cave, you'll appreciate the flutter of hundreds and thousands of bats as they become aware of your presence, observing their extraordinary role in the balance of ecology.

Soon you see the light at the end of the tunnel - the main output of Fun Fun, where the rivers run to see the light, licking the rocks. It is a spectacular place: large boulders, lush vegetation, nesting swallows, and most importantly, the legacy of Hispanic culture in the presence of petroglyphs, ancient rock art, religious magic, and the most important legacy of West Indian culture - the Taino.

You'll mount your horse to ride back to the ranch where you will enjoy a rich buffet of healthy and delicious food and native drinks before your return transfer to Punta Cana.
