Puerto Plata: Damajagua Waterfalls Full-Day Adventure

4. Puerto Plata: Damajagua Waterfalls Full-Day Adventure

Enjoy an unforgettable adventure at the waterfalls of Damajagua in the Dominican Republic, located at the confluence of emerald waters, deep in a tropical rainforest of the Cordillera Septentrional. 27 refreshing waterfalls have been chiseled by Mother Nature’s celestial mallet. Ideal for visitors who like to commune with nature, while experiencing an adrenaline-fuelled day, you will hop on the back of a safari-style truck, where a team of experienced guides and drivers await. Note that only 12 of the 27 waterfalls will be visited, since doing the 27 waterfalls would take greater physical preparation. After a short safety briefing, glide across the natural water springs, bathing in heavenly caves. Flanked by the whistling of exotic birdlife, and the banks of the Damajagua River, the rustling of the streams arouse a state of stillness. A labyrinth of tunnels and chutes are scattered around the waterfalls, some reaching heights of up to 13 feet. Somersault with the grace of aquatic birds, as your guide keep a watchful eye. Walk an interpretative rainforest trail to come face-to-face with Mother Earth, and wildlife waits to be greeted. Leap headfirst, swimming crossways, and sliding down natural waterslides. Explore unpredictable falls, with teasing names like “La Virgen” and “La Tinajita.” “La Virgen” holds Taino legends, where the aborigines built a statue of pebbles that paid homage to the Virgin of Altagracia, perhaps becoming the first worshippers of the Patron Saint of the Dominican people. After a typical buffet-style lunch, head towards the small town of Imbert and visit a local market where you can purchase artisan products and crafts bearing a distinct Dominican hallmark.

Following that, you will head to the zipline adventure to clip-in and follow your guide down 8 ACCT-certified ziplines. The ziplines consist of a total of more than 7,900 feet of double-galvanized steel cables. No experience is required, and contrary to many other zipline parks you are not involved in any active breaking, such as using gloves for stopping.

An incredibly great excursion that you have to have done! The pick-up at our hotel worked great, when we arrived at the ranch we were warmly welcomed by the owner. There were lockers ($2-3) and a briefing on the daily routine. Then the harnesses and the helmet were put on and off we went to the ziplines, which was great fun! Afterwards, peaceful horses were ridden through the countryside and a delicious lunch followed. This was followed by a 15 minute transfer to the falls followed by a 40 minute climb (strenuous but doable). Here you could jump, slide or climb down a ladder in 5 places - the cold water came just right! Just super beautiful!

Hello everyone...I went into this with some expectations...these were surpassed in a positive sense.In detail: It undoubtedly takes some courage/overcoming to jump or slide in the individual parts of the waterfall.But sometimes In the end it starts like an addiction and you want to tackle the steep ascent again and start the whole thing all over again. I definitely recommend it...do it...especially since the guides exude confidence and with the "travel guide" Amerikano it's even more fun. Thanks for this great time!

ZipLine: great, nice, friendly support Riding: The lovely little horses know the way. Very good even for the inexperienced. Lunch: delicious, very good crispy chicken schnitzel and various side dishes. More than enough. Waterfalls: 30 minute walk well worth it. Definitely place to book the photographer! Due to Corona, we had a mega private guided tour for two.

Eric is great man, talkative and spending time with him was a pleasure. That’s a pity that due to climate change many of the water attractions could not be realized.

An experience to live, it was the first time for me. I loved the dives and slides in the natural pools. The vegetation is lush
