Welcome to paradise! Take a stimulating trek through lush rainforest to discover the best of the 27 waterfalls at Damajagua. Hike, slide, swim and jump your way around this watery assault course, with a local guide leading you to all the best spots. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, we’ll take you to not one but TWO of our favourite local foodie haunts to sample the very best of authentic Dominican cuisine. At Dominican Adventures, we’re all about offering you the Best. Day. Ever., and we think we may have surpassed ourselves with this awe-inspiring tour!
Once we have all assembled, we’ll hop on public transport and take a 30-minute ride to the waterfalls entrance. Here we’ll stop briefly to introduce you to this astonishing sustainable tourism project.
A moderate 30-minute uphill hike through the beautiful jungle landscape will lead us to the 12th waterfall, which is where the real fun begins! From here, we’ll head back down river as 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 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 our 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 our beloved Dominican sausage, known as longaniza, which all the locals love.
Our food journey does not end here though! Next up, we’ll head over to a small town known for its mixture of local restaurants that specialise in authentic Dominican cuisine. We’ll visit our favourite joint where we’ll enjoy a scrumptious lunch accompanied by a local beer to wash it down.
After lunch we’ll head back to Puerto Plata where you can spend the rest of the day relaxing on the beach or exploring more of our 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.
Note that the food samples may vary from tour to tour depending on what is available that day

It was outstanding, literally, and Jose was exceptional. I (we) tend to avoid larger groups because my (our) preference is to delve into the nature of living there. Jose's in-depth knowledge of the socio-economic, education, laws, history, religions and spirituality were second to none in my experience. There was nothing he could not answer with intelligence and a full depth of factual comprehension. Every place we stopped was described in full and sensitive detail. He also came to my rescue. My airline had lost my luggage and advised me that it would arrive overnight to the hotel. We were scheduled to leave the next day on a cruise. I also lost my shaving kit with much-needed prescriptions. I was assured that my bag would be waiting for me but fortunately, Jose agreed to drive us to the airport. He lead us not to the baggage claim area but to the main control centre for baggage for my airline. I would never have found it on my own. He spoke at length with the right employee who dispatched someone it find it for me because it wasn't where it was supposed to be. I may have boarded the cruise without my luggage if it weren't for Jose. He also took me to a pharmacy and managed to get me replacement prescriptions before boarding in time. This man goes well beyond the call of duty for his clients. He is affable, trustworthy, intelligent, extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with. I wish he were available at every country we visited. I feel blessed that we were able to book him. read less
