Puerto Plata: Half-Day Damajagua Waterfalls Adventure
- Pickup available
- Duration: 6 hours
I had read a lot about the falls and our expectations were pretty high. Driving out through the litter- and construction-strewn zones around Puerto Plata, we were a little skeptical. Arriving at the falls, we were told that because of the ongoing drought, the "27" Falls were actually only "12". I was disappointed and even more skeptical. However, once on the hike up, the natural beauty if the area started to shine. Once on the downhill through the falls and water-carved canyons, we were enthralled. Jumping almost 30' into a clear pool was thrilling, the slides were a blast, the water was refreshing, and the guides were helpful and entertaining. I think we were all pretty tired, but wishing for even more, at the end. Bring your cash, though--the implication from the guides was "no tip, no lunch". I didn't mind--they earned it--but I was glad I tucked some pesos in my bag that morning. Lunch was pretty good, and the rum made it even better. :-)
The Fall were great but the very long walk to get there was not . It was a lot longer then we were told it would be. The Zip Line was okay but not quit what I was expecting. I thought we be over some deep canyon or some thing to look at other than a field. The Horse back riding was okay too. Not to exciting .
Very good, from pickup to drop off. Horses looked healthy although one was a donkey, the guide was very nice and pointed out many interesting things along the route. The waterfall is spectacular even if it hadn't rained much. Plenty of time for a swim and the lunch aftrr was good as well.
Great tour, the waterfalls are beautiful, staff was so helpful and informational. Lunch was great!
It was amazing! Gabriel was so patient with us as we had two non swimmers! Highly recommend!
