One of the most accessible caves, located inside the Cotubanamá National Park—there are over 400 of them— Cueva del Puente reveals a three-level chamber with stalactites, stalagmites, pictographs from the Taino days, and numerous bats. The cave trail is located approximately three kilometers south from the entrance of the park, and it takes less than 30 minutes to reach it, hiking past a tropical rainforest inhabited with lizards and birds. The giant caverns are partly obscure, while certain sections have orifices and light flows in from the sky.

Bayahíbe

Casa Ponce de León

How often do you get to step into the home of a 16th century Spanish explorer? Juan Ponce de León’s residence continues to stand in the southeastern town of San Rafael de Yuma, close to Higüey, where he lived before heading out into the seas to conquer neighboring Puerto Rico.

Cueva del Peñón
