Padre Nuestro / Dominican Republic


Padre Nuestro in Punta Cana is jokingly called a “sport” cave as it requires full diving equipment and divers have to move along an extreme slope inside the cave, where there is a lake. Hidden inside the cave’s depth it is deprived of sunbeams. All the difficulties at the beginning of the descending are fully compensated by the mesmerizing beauty that will stand before the eyes of the divers. The diving is performed along 120m/393ft long tunnel that is 3-12m/9-39ft deep at the end of which there is an air pocket, where divers can have some rest and move backwards. Both: body and soul are captured by the nature that decided to create this mysterious and magical world of caves. Difficulty is high.
