Full description
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.

    Great adventure! Our guide Dan Marino was great!!!! He kept everyone laughing and on course. If you are afraid of heights they do have options so you do not have to jump. Do not wear cotton shorts because you will not slide as well. We were a group of 14 with all ages and sizes and we all made it through and loved it. Lots of hi king so be ready. So very beautiful!!

    Purchased the tour online for the full day 27 falls but once in DR (at the resort). Their tour contacts were only scheduled for the 12 lower falls. Great 2.5 hours of fun (although did not get what we've paid for online, 5h). I suggest to book once you are landed with the resort's staff.

    It was a long hike before you reach the waterfalls. Its worth it tho. The lunch included was really good. The photo's were very expensive to buy $40. The drive from the hotel Viva Tangerine was almost 2 hours. But the waterfalls and the lunch were great!
