    What to Expect
    From your Cabarete, Sosua or Puerto Plata hotel, you will be picked up by your friendly guide who will accompany you throughout the tour. During the ride you will receive some local information of interest and a short safety briefing.

    On arrival at the 27 Falls of Damajagua Park you will leave the transport where you can leave a bag with your valuables, towel, dry clothes and flip flops for after the tour. Your guide will introduce you to the local waterfall guides who will be looking after you and you’ll be issued with a life jacket, helmet and a bottle of water for the hike up. If you want to take photos or video on the tour please only bring waterproof cameras. From this point on everything will get wet!

    A moderate 40 minute uphill hike through a beautiful jungle landscape gets you to the 12th waterfall or, if you are in excellent physical shape, choose to hike all the way to the top of the 27 waterfalls (approximately 70 minutes) and experience it all.  Either way, your real fun begins as we head back down-river and you jump, slide and swim your way through a series of spectacular waterfalls, canyons and azure pools, emerging with a silly grin on your face and incredible memories to cherish! The tours include jumps of up to 25 feet (8 meters) but don't worry, the big ones have another way down if you don't want to jump.

    After a 15-minute walk back to base camp and changing into your dry clothes, enjoy a delicious and varied Dominican buffet lunch, which includes things like barbecued chicken and pork, stews, rice, pasta and salads. Local rum drinks, sodas and water are included (beer is available but not included). After the meal, say goodbye to the local guides and board the transport for the ride back to your hotel.

    My husband and I were just there on Decemeber 5th, 2019. We were on a carnival cruise and we found our way to them quickly and easily since they weren't allowed inside the port. The directions they sent were very thorough. Our whole experience was amazing from start to finish!!!

    Hola dwaynestewart77 Thanks for joining us. I'm a little saddened that you seem to be blaming us with a 3 star review for something we have absolutely no control over. We are not Disneyland and can't just turn a tap on to fill the falls with enough water. We are completely at the mercy of Mother Nature. Some years we have floods and hurricanes, this year.. drought. Believe me, I wish that was not the case. I'm very happy you thoroughly enjoyed Alex and I sincerely hope, if you do decide to do the excursion again, mother nature will have been cooperative. Warm regards, Lidia / Iguana Mama

    Unfortunately we only got to do half of the waterfalls as it was quite a dry rainy season but it was still a great experience. They also made sure to reimburse us the difference between 12 falls and 27. The hike up hill at the beginning is at quite an incline and even as an

    This was such a fun experience even if we only did 7 waterfalls.We were told that the area where the falls is located is in a drought and we would only be doing 7. Carlos and Jose were so much fun and very informative of their country. That being said, my friends and I kept

    Hola bninn! Thanks so very much for going to the falls with us and this great review! I'm so pleased to read that you and your friends thought it was the best thing you did on vacation! Wow! What a difference a couple of rains make! The 12 Falls reopened today and with a few more rains, the full 27 will reopen as well!
