The sign says it is the world's only grotto disco. What it doesn't say how remarkable this grotto is! If you can imagine a coral reef being lifted up from the ocean floor by some incredible force to then become part of--or the whole of--an island, perhaps you can imagine the coastline of the Dominican Republic. This grotto is 15 meters or 45 feet below ground level and is large enough for 2000 fun-seeking, rowdy, dancing Dominicaners. It is the largest of many caves along the southern coast and is located within Mirador Parque where you may also see the place where this land was dedicated to preaching the Gospel. (See earlier post)... Mirador Parque is this island's version of Central Park, a beautiful green retreat stretching for miles along the coral encrusted southern coast.
