Full description
After meeting your local guide, hop on public transport for a 30 minute ride to the waterfall's entrance. A moderate 30 minute uphill hike through the beautiful jungle landscape will lead you to the 12th waterfall, which is where the real fun begins. From here, you’ll jump, slide and swim your way through a series of spectacular waterfalls, canyons and azure pools. The tour includes jumps of up to 25 feet (8 metres) but don’t worry, you can walk around them if you don’t fancy making the big jumps.

Delicious food will be waiting for you after your swim at a local’s favourite street food stall in a secret rural location, where you’ll try some delicious Dominican pork dishes, including crackling, fried pork and the beloved Dominican sausage, known as longaniza, which all the locals love. Your food journey does not end here though. Next up, head over to a small town known for its mixture of local restaurants that specialise in authentic Dominican cuisine. You’ll enjoy a scrumptious lunch accompanied by a local beer to wash it down.

After lunch you’ll head back to Puerto Plata where you can spend the rest of the day relaxing on the beach or exploring more of the beautiful island. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your guide for tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay.
