After being picked up at your hotel in Punta Cana we're gonna move direction Santo Domingo. Total driving time till the capital will be around 2.5 hours driving through the highway.

The first stop in the capital will be at the Three Eyes National Park with underground caverns and lagoons with gorgeous blue waters used by the Taino Indians (the Dominican Republic’s original inhabitants). There are many steps (around 60) down into the open air caverns so you have to be in good physical conditions.
