This ecological project Cueva Ni Rahú Cave (in Taino language, "ni" means water, and "rahú" means children; thus, in Spanish, Cueva de los Niños del Agua), a project designed by Dr. Lynne Guitar, Ph.D., Anthropologist and Historian of the Taino culture, from the XVI Century, for groups and individuals who want to know and share with the locals.
Ni Rahu Taino Cave project is an eco-tourism education and ecological research center will be built where Dominican students will gather from all levels (public and private schools, elementary and high schools as well as universities and institutes), more international students, church groups, youth groups, special interest groups, and also tourist groups in general, as well as scientists and other visitors who are interested in ecology, protection of the environment and fragile lands, as well as the indigenous cultural heritage of the Greater Antilles and their descendants. We will provide opportunities for educational and adventurous excursions, including guided tours by specialists in the cave's flora and fauna, and explorations of the crystalline underground pools. There will also be opportunities for researchers who wish to do extended stays.
