Fun-Fun Cave in Hato Mayor is ideal for adventure travel in the Dominican Republic, according to the Caribbean nation's Ministry of Tourism.
Holidaymakers enjoying adventure travel in the Dominican Republic, part of the island of Hispaniola, are told to consider a trip to Fun-Fun Cave in order to take in the sights of one of the world's largest natural formations.
"Descend by rope to see beautiful colourful tunnels and gigantic corridors, stalactites and stalagmites, petroglyphs, cave art and the magical whisper of an underground river," the tourism authority suggests.
Trips to the cave are likely to take a full day but can be embarked upon from a number of different locations.
Among these are Santo Domingo, Juan Dolio, Punta Cana, Boca Chica and Bavaro, providing a choice of starting point for travellers staying in different areas.
Reaching the mouth of the cave itself could prove to be an adventure, with a horse ride followed by a walk through humid woodlands in the forest Las Haitises.
