How is the tour in the 27 waterfalls of damajagua?

Visitor Center

The tour begins at the beautiful, new, visitor center. Enjoy traditional Dominican food and beverages in our open-air restaurant with breath-taking mountain views.

Nature

Make your way to the first waterfall on our interpretive nature trail on which you will encounter hundreds of species of tropical plants and birds.

Welcome to the First Waterfall

"The Virgin" Legend has it that the Taino Indians who used to inhabit the area built a statue of the Virgin Saint of the Dominican Republic, Altagracia. Unfortunately, the passage of time has completely destroyed any trace of their handiwork. The beautiful waterfall, however, has survived.

Up you go!

Tours climb up to the 7th, 12th, or 27th waterfall and then return through each level by jumping, swimming, and sliding down natural waterslides. Life jackets and helmets are included for the protection of our visitors.

The Perfect Waterslide

"La Tinajita" At over 20 feet deep, this waterfall is one of the most exciting. It gets its name because it resembles a container that farmers who once lived in the mountains used to store water called a tinaja.

The Corkscrew

A fun climb and an even better slide on the way back down. Our guides will escort you up and down the falls for an unforgettable experience.

T.O.Y.S.

This innocent looking waterfall has the tendency to make some tourists a little red in the face. You might want to tie up that swimsuit tight...

The Cave

The waterfall that falls through the domed roof gives a fantastic massage. This is the 7th level where the majority of the tourists arriving in jeep safaris turn back. For the adventurous, there are 20 more!

The Crystal

"The 8th" Tourists that climb up to this waterfall can be almost assured that they will not see any other tourists for the rest of the day. Enjoy the crystal clear water by sliding down the waterfall or jumping into the pool from nearly 20 feet.

Hot and Cold

The water in this fall has separated into two different levels, but opposite from what you might expect: hot on the bottom and cold on top. Remember to look at the wall to your right as you swim through the channel to see some amazing rock formations.

Flor's Fall

Flor Trejo was an old farmer who used to have a small plantation on one of the mountainsides near Rio Damajagua. Legend has it that one day he went to visit his favorite waterfall carrying a bundle of bananas. As he was walking over a fallen tree to avoid getting wet, he slipped, and instead of dropping the bananas to stay dry, he brought them with him to the bottom of the waterfall. Only problem was he didn't know how to swim and almost drowned.

What an excellent adventure! Beautiful place, great chutes, jumps and waterfalls. What made this really special was our guide Carlos. We brought my eight year old nephew with us, he had a hard time acclimating to the water temperature and first jump. Carlos hung with him the rest of the trek, helping and reassuring him. Carlos saved the day! Request Carlos for your guide, we can’t stop singing his praises. This adventure was definitely the talk of our trip!
