This park is located in the city and is beautiful. For about $2 (100 pesos), you can walk the park and caves to enjoy the serene landscape. There are stairs to go up and down into the caves and you will do a lot of walking, but it is definitely worth it. There is a small boat ride to visit the last cave, it costs about 50 cents (25 pesos). It is hot and humid, so bring bottled water. They have nice restrooms and a small concession stand inside the park to purchase drinks.

amazing place & history.. I had a tour guide ( Rose), she did very well, speaks english .. But I honestly feel it wasnt worth paying 40$ for a tour that lasts 15/ 20mins.. Nice spot for picture taking..

If you want to escape the busy (zona colonial) Santo Domingo take a short taxi ride (20-30 minutes) and visit these caves. Go early and take your time to look around. It's worth it and it's too hot to rush anyway.
From a park at street level you walk go down a few stairs (wear comfortable shoes) to the bottom of the caves. Once at the bottom the view is amazing. oh and don't skip the last cave. It's different from the other two caves.
Once back at ground level I would recommend to walk to the third cave. You get a nice view aswell and you can stop at a small restaurant for a drink and/or a snack.

It's like an underground cathedral, really unexpected and impresive beauty. An avice: DO NOT pay for a guided tour, they have almost nothing to say and you won't have time to enjoy the place. You should also cross one of the lakes using a small platform (50 pesos), it's worth it.

This is a beautiful spot; however, it is HUMID as hell down there so be prepared to sweat and have your glasses fog up. I paid $2000 dominican pesos for the guided tour which you really do not need. I knew that tourism was hit hard by Covid and I wanted to help out but I wish I hadn't because the lady then escorted me to all the vendors hawking very over priced souvenirs that I wouldn't have wanted if they were free and kept telling me that if I didn't buy something, their children wouldn't eat. I didn't appreciate that and would have preferred taking the caverns at my own pace. That being said, it is worth visiting, just be prepared for stairs, humidity and very, very aggressive vendors.

We drove a few hours out of our way to see this cave system. Absolutely worth every minute. I traveled with teenagers that enjoyed the beauty and took lots of astounding pictures. We showed up fairly early, and not many people were there yet. Well worth the couple dollars to take "boat" to fourth lake. Lots of stairs, so take your time.

The 3 eyes NP is in the eastern part of SD across the Ozama river. It takes some 15 min drive from downtown and there's a free parking lot on spot. Entry fee is pretty cheap at 200 DOP (less than 4 $).
3 eyes refers to 3 small underground lakes (cenotes). First two are nice and picturesque, while the third is very small. There's a fourth lake which you can access by a small roping boat with extra 1$ fee, or you can walk above it through the park. This fourth cenote I found the most beautiful so I suggest taking the boat (2 min ride) as the views from down there are much better than from above.
Contrary to the cenotes in Mexico, here you cannot swim in them. Count on around 1-1,5 hrs for a visit.
Combine your visit with the Columbus lighthouse which is 5 min drive from here (read that review).

The lakes are located just a short ride from downtown and it is an interesting spot. I hired a guide and it was worth the cost. It is quite touristic with boat ride and a lot of souvenir sellers. But nice view and atmosphere when you go down, You need to be in good shape to take the stairs and the humidity is heavy at the lakes,
