Puerto Plata: Damajagua Waterfalls Full-Day Adventure

6. 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.

What people are saying about Puerto Plata Province

Our tour guide Richard picked us up at the hotel on time. On the drive to the waterfalls we had a great chat with Richard and he gave us cool inputs and tips. The waterfalls were also cool. It was really fun to jump or slide, a real adrenaline rush. Lunch with Richard afterwards was super delicious !! We can only recommend this tour and would like to thank Richard

It was really very good. It only bothered me that the description says something of 7.5 hours, but unfortunately only 5.5 hours can be used. Lyre far too short if you want to see all the shows and attractions. The only bad thing was that I had to pay extra for the transfer from and to the hotel. With over 100 EU for these attractions a cheek! Otherwise great.

Great experience and nice shows. We were picked up with a delay, but it was worth the wait. All shows were unique, including sharks, sea lions, parrots and not to forget the dolphins. You can look at everything multiple times and have enough time for it. It wasn't crowded either. Lunch was delicious too. All in all it was a very nice day.

Richard and his Team were very nice to us. The snorkling at the reefes were very exiting and we saw a lot of fishes. Really nice Trip.

From the moment we were picked up, to the moment we were dropped off, we had a phenomenal time
