Those who believe that there can be only “seals” in the Dominican Republic, clearly did not go on a tour of “27 waterfalls” in the north in the Puerto Plata area, which is included in the top 10 best excursions in the country. If you rest in the Bavaro-Punta Cana area, then the journey to the place will take about 6 hours, but it's worth it - along the way you will see the changing landscapes and climatic zones of the country, its small towns, Caribbean life. In just one tour you will see the whole original and so different Dominican Republic, and if you order it in a group, the price will be very attractive!
This sensational institution is worth visiting even for those who do not have a special love for dancing: in addition to the disco, spectacular acrobatic studies, vocal performances of local celebrities, fascinating performances performed by doubles of popular stars, grandiose dance performances, soap bubbles and balloons show, impressive cabaret-style scenes.
La Cueva de las Maravillas, or, for short, the Miracle Cave is one of the most amazing places in the Dominican Republic. Located at a depth of almost 25 m, it stores valuable evidence of ancient culture - rock paintings left by the Taino Indians. During a short, but very memorable group walk, you can see more than five hundred ancient prints and pictograms (according to approximate calculations, “at least 500 years old”), which eloquently tell about the life and ritual rites of the extinct tribe. There is also plenty of miraculous beauty here: stalactites hanging from the ceilings form a kind of openwork lace, and stalagmites are folded into massive arches.
Another amazing place where you can touch the world of sea elements is Ocean World adventure park near the city of Puerto Plata. Tourists with children can’t ignore it for sure: there is an exclusive entertainment program for children from 4 to 12 years old, which includes a detailed acquaintance with marine animals, fascinating stories about their lives and habits, environmental education, interesting presentations, competitions and master classes.
Recently, in the capital's shopping center Sambil, you can admire the rare marine flora and fauna. The oceanarium, bearing the speaking name Aquamundo, has 72 aquariums (partly with fresh water) covering an area of 1600 square meters. For ease of orientation, it is divided into several thematic zones - habitats of reptiles, insects, tropical fish, sharks, huge corals, etc. A small fishing village is also equipped here, so that tourists get the most complete picture of the life of the local working people. Well, the glass tunnel that demonstrates underwater ocean life, as they say, from the inside - in conditions as close to natural as possible looks especially impressive.
